COBUS units are constructed almost entirely
of aluminum, thereby eliminating potential

Airports have found that by implementing
COBUS Airside Buses into their planning,
they can accommodate significantly more
aircraft arrivals and departures than they
have physical gates available.

become more and more concerned with their impact on the
environment, it is important to note that even the COBUS
diesel engine consumes only two gallons of fuel per operating
hour compared to the five or more gallons used by typical
transit buses.
Fully electric operation has been offered by COBUS
since 2014. Battery charging is accomplished by the airports'
choice of charging systems. From quick charge requiring less
than two hours to an overnight recharge, operators have the
ability to define the best system for their f leet based upon
intended routes and hours of usage. Experience has shown
that vehicle maintenance requirements of electric COBUS
buses is considerably less that that of other power options. This
offers additional savings to airports and operators of COBUS
electric buses.
When airports and/or airlines begin COBUS operations,
they are provided with full maintenance support and training
for their maintenance and operations staffs. COBUS Field
Service Engineers arrive at the airport together with the new
COBUS. It is their job to commission the buses, ensuring that
full operational capabilities are available within a few days after
arrival. They provide training to both airport maintenance
personnel and to the drivers of the buses. Training is also
provided to supervisory staff in both disciplines. Spare parts are
delivered and defined. Service check schedules are reviewed

with all concerned. Replacement spare parts are generally
available on an overnight basis or no later than several days
after order.
COBUS Airside Buses have been in operation for 35 years,
now at 400 airports around the globe including many here
in North America. Of the more than 4,000 COBUS buses
operating around the world, there are over 300 in the U.S.
and Canada alone.
In summary, the advantages that COBUS Airside Buses
bring to an airport can be stated to be:
* The ability to handle more flights without significant capital
investment in terminal expansion
* The rapid and expeditious movement of passengers between
terminals and aircraft parked off-gate on hardstands
* The ability for airports to determine the best scenarios for
additional aircraft movements beyond fixed terminal gate
* To maintain capacity and add f lexibility during airside
* Ad hoc passenger transport requirements such as retrieval
from aircraft immobilization on runways or taxiways,
