IVECO BUS signs third agreement with ÖBB Postbus for more than 900 CROSSWAY units

IVECO BUS announced the signing of a new multi-year framework agreement with Österreichische Postbus AG, Austria's largest bus company and market leader in regional bus services. This third agreement covers the supply of a new batch of more than 900 CROSSWAY and CROSSWAY LE buses, with 550 units to be delivered over the next two years. The remaining 350 units will be delivered by the end of 2028.

The new buses will join the almost 1,300 CROSSWAY vehicles already in the ÖBB Postbus fleet, which is now the largest fleet of CROSSWAYs in operation in the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) and one of the largest in Europe.


IVECO BUS and ÖBB Postbus are taking a new step in their long-standing cooperation with the signing,

on July 9th, of a third multi-year framework contract for the supply of more than 900 CROSSWAY and

CROSSWAY LE by the end of 2028. Deliveries of the first 550 units will be spread over the next

2 years, with the remaining 350 units following by the end of 2028. With a fleet of around 2,200 units, ÖBB Postbus will have the largest fleet of CROSSWAYs in operation in the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) and one of the largest in Europe.

Giorgio Zino, Head of IVECO BUS Europe Commercial Operations, said: "We are proud to have been selected once again for this third framework contract. ÖBB Postbus's renewed trust in us represents a major success for our brand, and we warmly thank them for their continued support of our CROSSWAY models, which is increasingly establishing itself as a leader in the Austrian market. It is an honour to support ÖBB Postbus in its mission to make journeys even more attractive."


Alfred Loidl, ÖBB Postbus Board Member, added: "We are very pleased to continue our long-standing successful collaboration with IVECO BUS. Modernizing the fleet not only improves passenger safety, but also meet the growing demand in bus transportation across all segments. The aim is to offer passengers an even more high-quality and comfortable service on their journeys."

 

ÖBB Postbus has selected CROSSWAY models in both Low Entry and Low Decker versions, with lengths of 10 and 12 meters. Combining operating efficiency, versatility and performance, the CROSSWAY has sold more than 60,000 units, becoming the benchmark in the Intercity segment in Europe. Manufactured at the Výsoké Mýto plant in the Czech Republic, the CROSSWAY range benefits from the centuries-old know-how of Europe's largest coach and bus manufacturer.
