55 ALEXANDER DENNIS ENVIRO200 FOR TRENTBARTON
Alexander Dennis Limited (“ADL”), today announced that English bus operator trentbarton has placed an order for 55 Alexander Dennis Enviro200 single deck buses. Delivery will take place in spring 2020 and in early 2021.
Trentbarton is adding 55 single deckers to its fleet in the English cities Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire. The new buses will continue a strong track record of investment and an established partnership between manufacturer and operator, taking the total number of Enviro200 buses built for both the trentbarton and Kinchbus fleet since 2016 to 136. Once the new buses are in service, Enviro200s will account for nearly 50% of trentbarton and Kinchbus’ fleet. Delivery of the first 30 buses is planned in spring 2020, with the remaining 25 to follow at the start of 2021. These Enviro200 will be 11.8m long and will have highly specified interiors designed. Jeff Counsell, Managing Director at trentbarton and Kinchbus, says: “We remain committed to investing in our fleet, to attract and retain customers by making bus travel the transport mode of choice. In partnership with ADL we have together developed and evolved the Enviro200 over the last five years. Our understanding of what customers want coupled with ADL’s appetite to develop the product has resulted in this bus.”
