We Make Tomorrow’s Difference Today

The world is changing, and the mobility of people is becoming more important every day. How can we make the move to more sustainable transport together? Towards more comfort, luxury and efficiency? And towards new, smart transport solutions that go beyond just delivering buses?

At VDL Bus & Coach we have a clear vision of the future and are constantly on the move to anticipate emerging trends. With the MidCity range we offer a trendsetting product concept.

The standard version of the MidCity already meets today’s requirements, and various option packages are also available to meet individual needs. That makes this bus range perfectly suited for various types of small- scale public and private passenger transport, both in cities and less densely populated areas.

With this approach we never stop moving and are driven to make a difference for our customers, passengers and drivers every day. We make tomorrow’s difference today.

Flexible and Multifunctional

The MidCity from VDL Bus & Coach was developed exclusively for public transport and includes a multifunctional area with a low floor that is ideal for use as standing room or for wheelchairs. Conversion to a low-floor bus, with space for 31 passengers – a speciality we developed in-house – offers an extensive range of possibilities. This makes the MidCity supremely well-suited for use as a public transport bus.

Sustainable Flexibility with MidCity

The MidCity is based on a converted Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. With its environmentally-friendly engines and optimised configuration options, the MidCity is also an exceptionally good alternative for sparsely populated areas. The compact size of the MidCity also makes it ideal for transport in city centres and urban areas as well as at airports and on trade show grounds. Unique to the MidCity is the possibility to extend the wheelbase by a generous 70 cm. This means that, with a rear extension, we can offer a vehicle with a length of 8.4 metres.

In addition, the MidCity has a double door with a very spacious width of 1,240 mm. With this widest door in the segment, a fast-flowing, smooth passenger flow is guaranteed.

Tailored to Your Wishes

With the MidCity, built around renowned commercial vehicle concepts, VDL Bus & Coach delivers a trendsetting environmental, technological and safety concept.

All the vehicles conform to the R107 directive, and flexibility, safety, quality and ease of use are all considered just as important as the use of sustainable materials and production techniques.

The standard version of the MidCity is already equipped with many features that make it extremely suitable for public transport. With the possibility to choose from various option packages, it is even more adaptable to specific needs.
