The engineers showed foresight even when the product was launched: the integrated touch screen can be flexibly adapted and is easy to operate amid the hectic activity of a driver’s working day. For this and for its functional, robust design that blends in with every cockpit, the won the prestigious red dot design award.

For instance, it was recently made compatible with debit and credit cards. Following a successful pilot project last year, IVU is currently equipping 1,125 buses of the Dutch Transdev subsidiary Connexxion with the so that passengers can also have the option of cashless payment when boarding in future.
