Buisness Model


The back of the basic bus can be connected with three different modules in order to get different lengthes, capacities and appliciation fields. All technical requirements are included in the basic bus. With the different modules a new diversity on applications that can be achieved by only one bus arises.

To enter into the system the franchisee acquires the basic bus and gets various services from MAN, as well as the provision of the three modules. The trader must take on a certain number of journeys organized by MAN, in order to get the benefits.
