For passenger comfort, the new buses will offer air conditioning and USB ports.

Meanwhile, technological solutions will assist the driver in offering a safe and reliable ride. For example, the eMirror system will provide cameras in the place of conventional side-view mirrors and Mobileye Shield+ will minimise the risk of colliding with pedestrians or cyclists.
