In-house Workshop

We run our own bus garage with an auto body workshop, filling station and much more.

Our highly qualified employees carry out all maintenance and repair work on the buses themselves. This has the advantage that all buses are always well maintained and quickly ready for use. We do not have to wait long for an appointment at the garage, because we are our own garage. As a result, service and repair times are minimized.

At the same time, we provide a large number of jobs at our workshop, offering interesting employment opportunities in a wide range of jobs. We also train apprentices.
