Ebusco has signed a contract with NIAG – subsidiary of the RETHMANN Group which also holds a 34 per cent stake in the Transdev Group - for 12 Ebusco 3.0 12-meter buses. The delivery of these buses is planned for end 2023.
NIAG (Niederrheinische Verkehrsbetriebe AG) will deploy the buses in the German district of Wesel and Kleve.

from Ebusco. This initial order is the first important step towards the electrification of the entire bus fleet.” In the press release Peter Bijvelds, CEO of Ebusco comments on the relationship between the family-owned RETHMAN GROUP and Transdev: "We are delighted with this collaboration with NIAG/Transdev. Having already delivered more than 170 buses to Transdev, this order is a clear recognition for Ebusco and we look forward to further expanding our successful partnership with Transdev and NIAG."
