First electric bus inspired by tram design brought to Chile by Alstom
Aptis, the electric bus developed by Alstom that offers the advantages of a tram, will soon begin running on the streets of Santiago, Chile.
The innovative, 100% electric vehicle is already in Chile being prepared for a pilot within Red Metropolitana de Movilidad, the city’s metropolitan transport system, operated by Redbus Urbano, a Transdev’s subsidiary present in Chile since 2007. The pilot aims to demonstrate the bus’s benefits to the city’s travelers for a period of three months. It will be the first time that Aptis has been tested outside of Europe.
