MAN Develops Germany’s First Amphibious Bus

To add a little more to the challenge, the river bus is currently also only available for maintenance for a maximum of one day per week. After all, the response to the city cruises has been huge: “In the first two months of operation, we have already had over 6,000 passengers on board, including locals as well as many people from further afield,” enthuses Franken, who is thrilled by how well his idea has been received. Other cities have also been keeping an eye on the developments in Hamburg’s harbor, with orders for a further five to seven amphibious buses already in the pipeline.
