ADL has announced an order for 55 Enviro200 single-deck buses for trentbarton.
The new buses will take the total number of Enviro200 buses built for the trentbarton and Kinchbus fleet since 2016 to 136. Once the new buses are in service, Enviro200s will account for nearly 50 per cent 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. All will be 11.8m long and will have high-specification interiors.
“Our customers love the 81 Enviro200 buses already in our fleet,” says Jeff Counsell, managing director, trentbarton and Kinchbus. “We remain committed to investing in our fleet, to attract and retain customers by making bus travel the transport mode of choice – by operating buses that are comfortable, clean, green and the perfect environment for relaxing or for keeping connected and productive on journeys.
“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 being widely recognised as the best customer environment of any bus on the market today.”
