Otokar wins a major bus contract of Amman
Otokar, a Koç Group company, continues to be the public transportation choice of metropolitan municipalities in Turkey and around the world for its innovative buses. The vehicles that Otokar manufactures with 58 years of industry experience are highly admired for their design, ergonomics, and technology, and used in countries, including Turkey, France, Italy, Spain, and Germany. Otokar most recently won the tender for 136 public transportation buses which was financed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) for the transportation needs of Greater Amman Municipality (GAM), the capital of Jordan. The contract, amounting to approximately 32 million USD including VAT and other taxes, includes the maintenance of these buses and training of bus drivers for 2 years. Deliveries of the vehicles are foreseen to be completed until the end 2022.
General Manager Serdar Görgüç expressed his pleasure about meeting the growing public transportation needs of Amman, which is in the process of a major urban transformation with the projects launched in the last five years. “We are delighted to contribute to the transformation efforts that Greater Amman Municipality has undertaken to improve public transportation with our innovative vehicles again. I hope the contract will benefit both parties and the people of Amman. As Turkey’s leading bus manufacturer, we will relieve and elevate comfort in Amman’s public transportation with our Kent and Vectio buses, preferred both in our country and major cities worldwide. We will start delivery of our modern vehicles, set to turn a new eco-friendly page in transportation, in lots next year”.
