Due to the news spread from the early hours of April 5th on some local newspapers and shared on social media, Ferrovie del Gargano has the duty to specify what follows.
On the morning of April 5th, the bus engaged in the exercise of the Mattinata-Vieste during the race of 7.15 am, near the town of Vieste, along the first stretch of the Mattei seafront, suffered a failure with the presence of smoke outside the vehicle.
This occurrence, which was caused by the momentary overheating of the braking system (front right wheel brake disc caliper), has in any case allowed the bus to stop in a safety way, the descent of passengers in a suitable area without any damage for their safety and the use, for precautionary purposes only, of the on-board fire-fighting equipment.
The public service was completed with another bus arrived in the shortest possible time from the nearby company depot.
This is done to deny the occurrence of the facts described in a wrong way and to provide reassurance on the safety of this transport exercise, to protect the good name of this Company.
