Dünya - Italian bus manufacturer BredaMenarinibus and its Turkish partner Karsan have opened a production line in Karsan’s Bursa facilities.

Karsan, one of the final contenders of New York City’s taxi tender, will invest EUR 25 million over the next three years for bus production in its Bursa plant. “The production for BredaMenarinibus is the first stage of our bus production business.
