In a situation of crisis and major uncertainty for the mobility sector generally and public transport in particular, at Irizar we have decided to attend the IBE trade fair with a 650 m2 stand, with the main aim of standing side by side with our customers and displaying the high added value of this sector to the economy and society.
Today more than ever we need to unite to face the challenges of the future together from a position of joint responsibility, all pulling in the same direction, authorities, institutions, operators and manufacturers.
At Irizar, we will keep developing innovative solutions that can pave the way for the reactivation and recovery of the industry. Our goal is to continue to make public road transport safer, more efficient and sustainable and to reduce the impact of vehicle emissions, noise pollution and accident rates.
