Montevideo, Uruguay. The local public transport company C.U.T.C.S.A. (Compañía Uruguaya de Transporte Colectivo S.A.) has placed an order for 147 city buses. The chassis will be produced at the Daimler Buses São Bernardo do Campo bus plant in Brazil and will then be equipped with bodies from Marcopolo. Delivery will take place by the end of the year and the buses will be operational in Montevideo from the start of 2020.

“Daimler Buses is currently enjoying good sales figures in Latin America”, points out the manufacturer. “Thanks to the increasing demand for chassis in Brazil, the turnover for Latin America, excluding Mexico, was 4,600 units in the third quarter of 2019 compared with 3,400 in the previous year and is thus a big advancement compared to last year. “
