For Schlienz-Tours, it's simple: the tailored concept pays for itself. Danilo Djokic, Operations Manager at Schlienz-Tours, empasises “we are a private bus company and have to make money with our buses. E-buses are more expensive to purchase than diesel-powered buses, but cheaper to operate, and this can be optimised further with the charging management system.” The values for charging time, charging capacity and consumption make daily operating costs visible, helping the bus company to control costs. "We now have an even better idea of where our money is going. This is an advantage of using e-buses that we did not expect in the beginning."
