To present the innovations and technologies focused on biosafety that Marcopolo has been developing, the company has assembled a bus with all the new solutions and will hold a roadshow at the main markets served both in Brazil and abroad, to demonstrate the advantages and benefits to customers and users.

“We need to act with urgency and proactivity to spread and foster the application of these important solutions that will collaborate in the safe and healthy recovery of the country. Public transportation is fundamental to ensure people’s mobility and cannot be seen as a bottleneck or a limitation”, James emphasizes.

The executive adds that the Marcopolo BioSafe concept covers models from the Marcopolo, Volare and Neobus brands and shows the company’s high capacity to respond to new challenges.
