The vehicles were acquired by the companies Viação Pendotiba and Santo Antônio Transportes, which are part of the Consórcio Transoceânico.

The Millennium, in the low-floor version, has a door on both sides at sidewalk level. The four doors located in the lower part of the vehicle, facilitate the boarding and disembarkation of the passengers.
