COBUS Industries GmbH is the world market leader in the supply of apron buses, related services and integrated solutions.

In addition, however, there are also special designs that you would not get anywhere else…

Comfort is ensured by the Allison automatic transmission. With the unique e.START concept, even a diesel bus can be converted to fully electric drive. Today, more than 4,500 COBUS airport buses are in operation at around 350 airports in 108 countries.
The company helps airlines, ground handlers and airport authorities achieve their goals: Electric and diesel engines designed to meet every emission standard, fleet management systems to reduce operating and maintenance costs, and financing and leasing options for different budgets.

With special vehicles such as the feeder bus to the island of Mont St. Michel in Brittany, COBUS shows what customer orientation can mean. This vehicle has two operator stands and can therefore be operated in two directions. With the transmission package from DGS consisting of a reversing transmission and an Allison automatic, it is possible to bring visitors safely to and from the island during the short periods of low tide. The bus does not have to be turned around in the process.
