SCANIA BIOGAS BUSES FOR READING UK

Reading Buses have taken 17 new high-end Scania double decker biogas buses into operation. The buses, with bodywork by Alexander Dennis, service Reading’s busiest bus route, the Purple 17. This is the first frequent bus service in the UK that can carry two wheelchair users at once.

The buses feature two doors, one for embarking and one for disembarking, which reduces time at bus stops. They also feature 4G Wi-Fi as well as USB charging points and coat and bag hooks at seats. When operating on biogas, the carbon dioxide emissions of Scania buses are reduced by up to 84 percent compared to regular diesel. They are significantly quieter too, making them an ideal choice for urban operations.
