BLACKPOOL REVITALISES FLEET WITH ENVIRO400 CITY BUSES
The local public transport company has just secured £7.7m of funding from Blackpool Council as part of an £18m investment programme to completely revamp the resort’s bus fleet. Her aim is to replace the entire 140 vehicles in the next four years and to ensure that beyond 2020 there is no bus more than five years old.
A vital part of the city’s broader transport strategy is the modernisation of the bus fleet and the introduction of next-generation, low emission vehicles. That journey will take another significant step with the launch of 10 ADL Enviro400 City buses on the high profile Palladium route, which will be followed progressively over the coming years with further vehicle replacements.
The net result is a vehicle bristling with technology and mod cons, according to the operator, including ADL’s unique Release Glazing, wood effect floors, e-leather seating, WiFi and USB charging points, audio and visual stop announcements, plus Low Carbon Certification which enables the user to claw back a considerable amount of our investment through BSOG.
