The first prototype of the CHIC FCH bus for Oslo is being testing in Belgium by Van Hool Bus Manufacturer. Buses for the CHIC cities are supplied by bus manufacturers (Daimler EvoBus and WrightBus, and Van Hool) which build each bus to fit the requirements for the operations within the city/region of the CHIC project.  Thus, Oslo buses are custom built for the deployment in the regular public transport fleet in Oslo with length of 13 meters long and fitting 37 seated passengers.

All 5 Oslo buses will be delivered to Oslo in March 2012. Residents will start to see the buses in regular transport service in the Spring 2012 in time for summer. The Design of the Oslo buses has also been chosen to display a large butterfly on the sides of the buses.
