The World’s Biggest Bus
It already has the nickname of «the world’s biggest bus». And there is a reason for that. With number «3» as its trademark, the Volvo Gran Artic 300 is 30 meters long, based on 3 articulated segments, having as well a capacity for, that’s right, 300 passengers.
The world’s biggest bus was built by Volvo specifically for the transport network Brasil BRT (Bus Rapid Transit), whose goal is to carry as many people as possible with the lowest costs: both environmental and financial. The passengers not only end up paying less for a ticket, but overall it is possible to reduce CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, as there are fewer vehicles in motion.
Gran Arctic 300 was presented at FetransRio among other Volvo buses with a capacity for 150, 180 and 210 passengers. This is the Swedish brand’s second double-articulated bus. In the 90s, Volvo produced a vehicle with three segments, already capable of carrying 270 passengers back then.
