In the coming days, it will be a normal sight to see a Mercedes-Benz premium bus plying from Araneta Cubao to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
Auto Nation Group (ANG), Inc., the official distributor of Mercedes-Benz vehicles in the country, has partnered with UBE Express to launch the new premium Point-to-Point (P2P) route from Araneta Center, Cubao to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal, Pasay. ANG is providing a total of 17 Mercedes-Benz O500U premium buses to UBE Express to be used in the said route.
ANG and UBE Express started its partnership in 2016 when ANG provided 21 units of the 24-seater Mercedes-Benz 0500U 1826 MCV C120LE. This year, ANG is committed to fulfill 17 units of its 32-seater Mercedes-Benz O500U bus until end of the year. Ube Express is just one of the numerous P2P companies that ANG provides buses to across Metro Manila and Cebu.
Unknown to many, Mercedes-Benz has been making buses since 1895 in Mannheim, Germany and the legacy continues today, with the same engineering DNA embodied in its strong line-up of commercial buses.
