Aptis, the 100% electric bus from Alstom, is in Italy, after touring Spain, France, Belgium, Holland and Germany. The tour started from Florence, in the splendid setting of the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella. It will tour six Italian cities up until May.
Aptis will be in passenger service in the Tuscan capital, free of charge, for 13 days and will be operated in collaboration with ATAF. It will cover seven different circuits, from the centre to the periphery.
Since the prototype was presented in March 2017, more than 40,000 kilometres have been covered in real operating conditions by four test vehicles in Europe.
