The total of sixteen new S 415 LE business buses for Medenbach Traffic GmbH will go into operation on the Weilburg and East Weilburg bus routes and will replace inter-city buses of the Ulm brand. The new low-entry buses are equipped with 42 seats, floors with an elegant wood appearance, special spaces for wheelchairs, buggies and bicycles, and a display system with real-time information.
In order to protect drivers from Covid infection from passengers, the company has equipped the new low-floor buses with all-transparent polycarbonate driver protection doors designed by Daimler Buses especially for the Setra LE business vehicles.
The family-owned company from Weilburg in central Hessen was founded by Adolf Medenbach in 1935 to transport goods. In 1951 he laid the foundation for the future direction of the company by starting a bus service between Weilburg and Wetzlar.
Peter Medenbach, who now manages the traditional company in the third generation together with his son-in-law Timo Medenbach, relies on vehicles of the traditional Setra brand from Ulm, as did his father Lothar and his grandfather Adolf. Medenbach Traffic GmbH acts for the transport company Lahn-Dill-Weil and the Rhine-Main transport consortium, operating buses in the districts of Limburg-Weilburg and Lahn-Dill. The modern fleet conforms to the most stringent environmental regulations and won the "Blue Angel" award.
