Thanks to these important agreements, our buses will serve in Prague – as in most European capitals – thousands of passengers every day, in safety and comfort. A further demonstration that IVECO BUS’s diverse and competitive offer can suit the most varied mobility needs of any municipality”, said Domenico Nucera, President Bus Business Unit, Iveco Group.
