Scania: Scania strengthens position in Indonesia

Scania continues to reinforce its position in the Indonesian bus
market. Transjakarta has now placed an order for 150 low-entry city
buses in addition to the previously ordered 110 3-axle Scania buses
that will be delivered later this year. The public transport operator
in the Indonesian capital already has 108 articulated Euro 6 Scania
gas buses in its network.

The Transjakarta Bus Rapid Transport system is considered to be the
world's longest busway, serving more than 10 million passengers
monthly. The forthcoming delivery of low-entry buses will replace the
existing, highly polluting, old buses that operate outside the busway
corridors. The new Scania buses, delivered by United Tractors and
bodybuilt by Laksana, will feature wheelchair ramps.

On announcing the order, Jakarta Governor Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja
Purnama particularly highlighted the greater accessibility and said,
"this is the world-class bus we expect to have. Jakarta has never
before had low-entry buses."

Scania, through its Indonesian partner United Tractors, has
established the bus depot workshop facilities and parts supply
systems in Jakarta needed to uphold an uptime of over 90 percent.

United Tractors is the leading and the largest distributor of heavy
equipment in Indonesia, providing products from world-renowned
brands, including Scania. The partnership between United Tractors and
Scania was established in 2004, initially focusing on heavy-duty
trucks for the Indonesian mining industry.

Scania is major supplier of buses for BRT systems throughout the
world. "We are convinced that bus systems offer the quickest and most
cost-effective solution for cities to increase urban mobility and
alleviate traffic congestion," says Karin Rådström, Head of Buses and
Coaches. "The Jakarta BRT system serves as a model for many growing
cities."
