DB Arriva signed a pan-European contract with TomTom Telematics. The technology provides bus drivers with direct feedback on braking and acceleration as well as idling processes to support more fuel-efficient, greener journeys.
Together with the Province of Limburg, DB Arriva aims to operate an emissions-free transport network in the region by 2026. As part of that goal, DB Arriva began to introduce a fleet of 55 emissions-free buses in Maastricht.
In June 2019, DB Arriva began running bus services in the southern Swedish town of Helsingborg following the award of the eight-year contract in 2018. This includes running the citys new electric Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system.
