Bus transportation

Bus transportation in the city of Sibiu, dates from 1930, when 3 Aamer buses were purchased.

Beginning with 1957, the passenger transport was equipped with small Romanian MTD buses, then TV 20 and UD 112.

In 1972, once the tram network was canceled within the municipality, there were purchased SKODA busses from Czechoslovakia and IKARUS buses (articulated) from Hungary.

By 1977, the bus fleet exceeded 150 units of different brands and types, but due to fuel restrictions, a large part of the vehicles were put in preservation.

Over the years, the structure of the bus fleet has changed due to purchase of  UDM, UDA 117, RD 111, RDTM 111, buses, of Romanian production.

In 1983-1984, it was adopted the solution for the circulation of methane gas buses instead of diesel, which required the installation of 2 containers and the installation required for gas supply.

During the same period, a gas supply station was built, inside the unit, equipped with compressors, in addition to other points connected to the municipality network and located in the main ends of lines.

Between 1992 and 2002, second-hand buses from Germany and Switzerland (IKARUS, VOLVO and MAGIRUS) were purchased.

For the renewal of the fleet, the Sibiu City Hall equips the transportation company with 40 MAZ buses between 2002-2004

In 2007, through an EBRD loan there are  purchased 23 MAN busses 12 meters long, 3 MAN busses 18 meters long, 2 REGIO busses and 9 BMC busses 9 metres long.

Between 2010 and 2015, due to the continuous increase in the number of passengers transported, there were bought 23 used MAN and MERCEDES 18-meter long buses  and 9 VOLVO and MAN 12- meter long buses.

In 2018, 38 ISUZU 12-meter buses and 17 MENARINI buses were purchased.

At the beginning of 2019, the City Hall provided TURSIB with 10 DIAMOND buses (Romanian production).
