ADL ENVIRO500 FOR SINGAPORE IN NEW 3 DOOR LAYOUT
Alexander Dennis has developed an innovative new concept for its new Enviro500 double deckers for Singapore. These Enviro500 buses will feature a full-flat floor design along with three passenger doors and two staircases, one at the front and one at the rear of the vehicle, allowing commuters to move through the vehicle quickly and safely.
The order for ADL is given by Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA). Alexander Dennis is to deliver 50 of these new double deck buses. The new layout with three doors and two staircases will help smoother and quicker boarding and alighting. The first of the new buses will be delivered next year.
The design builds upon the concept bus that Alexander Dennis developed for the LTA in 2016, adding further innovation including the use of the latest aluminium composite body technology and a host of new safety and energy-saving features. The 50 new buses will join 216 earlier Alexander Dennis Enviro500 already in operation in Singapore. All will be supported locally from the manufacturer’s 25,000 square foot facility in the north of Singapore which was opened last year. Paul Davies, Managing Director for Alexander Dennis Asia Pacific, says: “This new order is a resounding confirmation of Alexander Dennis’s strategy in Singapore, where we have invested significantly to support the Land Transport Authority and its operating partners.”
