The contract is part of a massive renovation project of public transport in Casablanca. During the course of 2006, Hispano will deliver 200 buses, and the remaining numbers will be delivered over a period of three years. The first ten buses were presented to M’Dina Bus at a ceremony in Casablanca, in the presence of Mohammed Kabbaj, Wali de Grand Casablanca, and the Mohamed Sajid, President of the Casablanca Urban Community.
These buses will be Hispano’s Habit buses, 12 metres in length, built on Iveco chassis, which Hispano has been using regularly.
Since its establishment in September 2000, Hispano Maghreb, has rapidly become the dominant bodybuilder of luxury buses and coaches in Morocco. The most important transport operators in the country today trust Hispano. Alsa Group in Marrakech and the Ruiz Group in Tangeirs are its best Citybus customers, while CTM Group, Atlas Rider, Satas and Supratours, are loyal customers for luxury tourist coaches.
