Higer – Extended-Range Electric Bus (10.499m Mid-size Bus)

The new batch of extended-range electric mid-size buses that were officially put into service at the end of 2023 have a body length of 10.499 meters, making them the longest mid-size buses in Macau. Due to the weight limit of the Ponte Governador Nobre de Carvalho, Transmac specially studied and improved with the manufacturer to reduce the vehicle height for a lightweight design, which has also increased the passenger capacity of each bus and enhanced the traffic dispersion abilities. The buses are equipped with two doors and side kneeling function to facilitate passengers getting on and off the bus, and anti-pinch electric sliding doors to protect passengers’ safety. Moreover, they are equipped with left and right electronic rearview mirrors to increase bus safety and service, and two route information display screens in the compartment for passengers to obtain route itineraries conveniently.

Besides, the buses are equipped with EBS electronic braking and anti-slipping system, as well as “G-BOS” real-time monitoring system, which can conduct real-time monitoring of the battery, motor, electronic control, report abnormal situations to the monitoring platform and automatically shuts down to ensure operational safety. They are also equipped with German air-cushion driver seats with automatic adjustment, spine protection and massage functions in order to increase driver’s comfort while on duty.
