New COBUS Apron Buses for US Airports
26 April 2013
COBUS Industries has announced that the fleet of COBUS Airport People Moving Buses in North America has recently increased with several new orders. At Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, FL, two new COBUS Model 3000 buses were delivered in November of 2012. FLL now has a fleet of four COBUS 3000s. These state-of-the-art buses will be used to transport airline passengers around the airside of the airport, between the terminal and aircraft that are parked off-gate on hardstands. This new order is in conjunction with the redevelopment of the airport’s Terminal 4 and a newly expanded runway. At Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, TX, two new COBUS Model 3000 buses were also delivered in December of 2012. These buses are planned to contribute to the ground handling capabilities for the anticipated additional international flights that are scheduled to arrive at DFW starting in early 2013. These COBUS buses join an existing COBUS which has been at the airport for more than two years. Miami International Airport, FL, has ordered two new COBUS Model 3000 Airport Buses which will be used to transport airline passengers around the airside of the airport. The buses, which were delivered in February 2013, will be a backup to MIA’s Automated People Mover (APM) systems.
