On August 10, 33 units King Long buses equipped with Cummins ISL9 engines and one unit King Long bus with Cummins ISB6.7 engine arrived at Xiamen Port, ready for their shipping to La Paz, the capital city of Bolivia in South America.

With an average altitude of over 3,000 meters, Bolivia is a land-locked country. La Paz, its capital city, with an average altitude of over 3,600 meters, is known as the highest capital city in the world. As 70% of the city’s roads are slopes, the city sets demanding requirements for buses.

In 2013, 61 units King Long buses equipped with Cummins engines arrived in La Paz for operation, ushering a brand new era for the city’s public transportation and providing unprecedented travel convenience for local citizens.(www.chinabuses.org)
