THE COMPANY RENEWS, BETTING ON RECOVERY
The road transport segment is going through the worst crisis in its history worldwide, due to mobility restrictions and social distancing imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic. In Brazil, while rental and business transport services progress, being the protagonists of the deliveries of new vehicles this year, road route operators resist, although others are betting on the recovery and consider that the worst is over.
This is how Boa Esperança considers it, who has ordered 16 units of Marcopolo’s larger models, receiving 10 Paradiso 1600LD New G7 with Scania K400 chassis and 6 Paradiso 1800DD New G7 on the Scania K440 8X2 that arrive to commemorate 50 years of history of the transportation company of the state of Pará.
The ten Paradiso New G7 1600 LDs have capacity for 48 passengers in semi-bed seats, benefiting from the largest storage capacity on the market and include elevators for people with reduced mobility. For their part, the six Paradiso New G7 1800 DD have different configurations: four have capacity for 64 passengers, with 12 seats on the lower deck and 52 semi-seats on the upper deck, and two have 43 seats, with 12 seats on the floor, lower floor and 31 sofa beds, on the top floor.
All vehicles are equipped with air conditioning system, wood-look floor, individual light, 110-volt outlet, cup holders and USB ports on all seats and Wi-Fi, as well as a toilet. Boa Esperança stands out for being the most representative operator in the north of Brazil. With a modern fleet, it operates dozens of interurban and interstate lines, promoting the connection of the capital of Pará with several municipalities in the state and several others in the northeast of Brazil.
