Solaris Urbino

 

 

 

 

 

Characteristic

The Solaris Urbino family consists of modern low floor city buses. Characteristic of the whole family is the sloping line of the front windshield, which distinctly identifies any Solaris city bus. It provides better visibility of the kerb on the right side of the vehicle and thus increases the safety of passengers waiting at bus stops. The Urbino family of low floor city buses is characterised by its modern design, durability, ease of maintenance and operation, accessibility and environmental-friendliness. All Solaris Urbino buses are made from stainless steel. Their full low floor design is a reinforced construction designed for use even in challenging road conditions and climates. All Solaris Urbino buses are equipped with a kneeling function reducing the entrance height by c.a. 70 mm. A wheelchair ramp is also available, with either manual or electric operation. Depending on vehicle length, up to 183 passengers may be carried. The drive train of the Solaris Urbino is centred on modern, durable and economic diesel or compressed natural gas engines meeting latest European emissions standards. The Solaris Urbino CNG, available in 12, 15 and 18-metre versions, offers compressed natural gas propulsion on urban buses. The technology reduces the emission of harmful substances by up to 85 %, in the case of particulate matter even by almost 100 % compared to traditional diesel engines. The Solaris Urbino CNG therefore meets even the most demanding environmental standards. The Solaris Alpino is the smallest Solaris bus produced at a length of 8.6 metres and width of 2.4 metres. It was designed with narrow and twisting streets of small towns in mind, but it manages equally well in congested centres of large agglomerations. The Solaris Alpino is attractive, practical and friendly to passengers as well as the environment.

Construction

The Solaris Urbino body frame is a welded structure, made from 1.4003 grade stainless steel (according to the EN 10088 standard). Large-section profiles used for the construction of the body frame increase the body rigidity, ensure excellent resistance to vibrations and help to reduce noise levels. Side panels of the Solaris Urbino are made from 1.4003 grade stainless sheets (according to the EN 10088 standard), with lower sections made of DIBOND composite material. Front and rear sections of the bus are made from glass-reinforced plastic (GRP).

Comfort

The buses of Urbino family are designed to give passengers ultimate comfort and safety, even on the shortest routes. Passenger flow is eased by the low floor, while Wabco ECAS electronically-controlled air suspension ensures high travel comfort. The ventilation system comprises roof-mounted vents and electronically operated roof hatches. The Urbino boasts an unusually wide aisle between the rear wheel arches – much wider than that of its competitors, to allow passengers unrestricted freedom of movement inside the bus.

Technology

Solaris Urbino buses are powered by advanced engines supplied by DAF, Cummins, MAN or IVECO. The steering system is equipped with ZF Servocom 8098 hydraulic power steering. The Urbino is also equipped with the very efficient EBS system. The electrical system is based on the CAN Bus system is compatible with the dashboardmounted driver information system which displays important parameters and provides information on the state of the vehicle‘s essential systems.

Tests

Solaris Urbino buses are reliable during the daily operation – their construction properties are tested on test tracks of the DAF, Wabco and Tatra companies. The mileage covered by buses on the test tracks equals 1.000.000 km, which corresponds to 10 years of regular operation. Such intensity of technical tests is ensured by „special stretches“: Belgian cobbles, undulating track surface, constantly moistened road sections, 18 degree slopes, sharp turns. Among other features, the durability of the structure, the brake systems efficacy and the properties of the steering system are tested this way – all of them ensure safety for Solaris bus passengers and high availability of vehicles for operators.
