Passengers on board the MAN Lion’s City bus series are optimally shielded from urban traffic noise, while the well-lit interior with harmonious colours ensures a pleasant ambiance. Glass roof hatches can be installed as an option, to increase the natural light in the interior even further. On the articulated bus models, translucent folding bellows can be implemented to allow additional light into the passenger area. The ergonomic and comfortable seats have no underseat props, thereby providing ample legroom between the individual rows. Entrances, exits, and also the centre aisle are especially low, making it easy to board and alight from the bus. The right side of the vehicle can be lowered by up to 80 mm to help elderly people and those with reduced mobility board.
In comparison with the plastic roof hatches that are still available, the new glass roof hatches allow even more daylight into the vehicle interior, providing excellent levels of illumination in the passenger area. The electrically operated tilt function also provides a good supply of fresh air on warmer days. Added safety is provided with an easy-to-reach hammer, which can be used to open the glass roof hatch quickly in an emergency.
Translucent folding bellows
The translucent folding bellows were designed as a flexible transition system for the articulated buses in the MAN Lion’s City series. The unique rugged material used allows daylight to pass through, significantly improving the lighting conditions in dark areas. Combined with the effect of the roof hatches, this creates a well-lit atmosphere that increases passenger comfort and allows them to find their seats or get to the exit more safely.
Air conditioning system
The air conditioning system has been completely upgraded for the latest generation of the MAN Lion’s City bus series. The latest generation of the air conditioning system provides optimal conditions in the passenger area. In comparison with to the models previously installed, these air conditioning systems work far more quietly and efficiently. The air conditioning system is now also more lightweight, needs less energy and is easier to maintain.
The modern interior concept of the MAN Lion’s City includes USB charging sockets in selected seats and the technology required to equip the bus with a WLAN router. The high-quality LED lighting perfectly complements the contemporary infotainment features.
Equipment for those with reduced mobility
All MAN Lion’s City models have equipment for those with reduced mobility that complies with all the requirements of EU Directive ECE R107. For instance, an optional, fold-down wheelchair ramp at door 2 enables barrier-free access for the elderly and those with impaired mobility. Manual or automatic versions of the ramp are available. There is also ample room in the passenger area for a wheelchair, as well as optional fold-up seats for accompanying persons.
Stepless entrance, walk-through passenger area
All MAN Lion’s City buses are built with low floors to ensure access is as convenient as possible. Furthermore, the floor in the passenger compartment is designed to be flat and stepless throughout.
All MAN Lion’s City models can be lowered at one side to increase safety in hectic rush-hour traffic. The ’kneeling-function’, fitted as standard, reduces the distance from the ground to the edge of the entrance by up to 80 mm, and therefore guarantees convenient access for all passengers.
The doorway to urban life
Start and stop, open and shut. Having passengers boarding and alighting every few minutes is routine for a MAN Lion’s City bus. The completely re-developed door system of the city bus series* impresses with its high levels of operational safety. The electrical door motor functions reliably even in temperatures below zero, meaning no adjustment work is required for any of our MAN door systems, even in the case of strong fluctuations in the ambient temperature.
The MAN Lion’s City offers the choice of pneumatic internal and external swinging doors, electro-hydraulic internal swinging doors and an electro-hydraulic sliding swing door.
