Public transport that ensures mobility and quality of life in metropolitan areas of cities and municipalities. The Skyliner Express is ideal in this case: it closes gaps in the network as required, quickly and without major investments into the traffic infrastructure. As a route operator, you offer your passengers not only a high-speed service with the Premium Express Bus, but also comfortable travel options, and you can count on maximum efficiency at the same time.
Our double-decker express bus has a 100 km/h certification and with 510 HP engine power, you can carry up to 96 passengers and 11 m3 luggage on one trip. The Skyliner Express is also impressive thanks to its perfect design and high savings in consumption and maintenance costs. Its sophisticated, high-quality and robust interior design offers maximum comfort. Thanks to its folding ramp, the Skyliner Express is barrier-free for wheelchair users.
Space and comfort in direct scheduled transport
The Skyliner Express offers you the ideal equipment for scheduled transport, from hard-wearing seats, handrails and stop buttons to innovative concepts for particularly efficient passenger flow. In the Express design, the Skyliner offers up to ten additional seats. Thanks to the variety of design options, you can design your Skyliner Express easily and individually, based on your own requirements and wishes.
When travelling in the Skyliner Express, your passengers can enjoy maximum comfort even when transporting luggage: in our premium direct bus, you can offer passengers up to 11 m³ storage space. This gives the Skyliner Express the largest luggage compartment in the entire double-decker class.
Even loading and unloading the bus can be carried out easily and quickly: with an opening angle of 89 degrees, the luggage compartment flaps can be opened up to 2.24 meters high. Special hinges on the luggage compartment door also increase the clear width of the aisle.
Plenty of space for many passengers
The layout of the Skyliner Express is specifically designed for economy and comfort in direct scheduled traffic: with 91 seats and standing room for 5 passengers, it provides a significantly higher passenger capacity than our Skyliner coach model.
You can create barrier-free city-to-city connections with the Skyliner Express. Up to two wheelchairs can be safely secured for travel on the lower deck, and thanks to the manual folding ramp, wheelchair users can easily get on board.
Innovative stairs solution
Benefit from our new concept solution for passenger flow: the equipment options with positioning of the front stairs on the right in the direction of travel. Thanks to the stairs immediately next to the front access, your passengers will directly reach the upper deck quickly and comfortably. This decreases waiting times when getting on and off. Our new stairs solution is therefore ideal for use in express bus and direct scheduled traffic.
Drivers also benefits: they now have an extra 70 mm in seat adjustment and additional storage space. The central location of all electrical components to the left and behind the driver’s seat also makes it easier to maintain your Skyliner.
Premium power and technology
Reliability and efficiency are a must when it comes to connecting cities. For this reason, we have equipped the Skyliner Express with only the best and most efficient engineering and design solutions – from engine, transmission and damping technology to the optimisation of size, weight and available space.
Reliable, economical, powerful and environmentally friendly: The new MAN D26 common-rail engine does a great job behind the Skyliner Express engine compartment flap. The six-cylinder in-line engine with 375 kW (510 HP) offers an outstanding consumption-performance ratio and runs smoothly and quietly. The combination of exhaust gas recirculation EGR with the SCR filter ensures a maximum reduction of pollutant emissions. Your NEOPLAN Skyliner Express complies with the latest Euro 6 emission standard. At the same time, the drive system achieves particularly low fuel consumption and thus ensures excellent travel economy.
Technology for a quiet drive
Gliding comfortably. Provide your passengers with a relaxing travel experience on every route. The new MAN TipMatic® Coach generation of your Skyliner ensures the optimum gear-shift strategy in every driving situation, from starting on inclines, gradients and corners to support in stationary traffic. The intelligent transmissions technology increases driving comfort considerably. You will also benefit from increased road safety and lower fuel consumption.
The active, electronically controlled suspension CDS (Comfort Drive Suspension) not only increases driving comfort, but also road safety. Electronically controlled dampers respond to changing loading and driving conditions at lightning speed and adjust the hardness and intensity of the damping to the new conditions in milliseconds. This means that the vehicle always stays safely on course on bends and when at full load.
