You wait for one bus and 18 new ones come along!
Blackpool Transport Services will officially unveil 18 brand new Enviro200 buses on 25th June 2018.
Finished in the ‘Palladium’ brand, the buses offer free Wi-Fi, USB charging points and phone holders, fancy seats and next stop audio/visual announcements amongst other features.
The delivery of these 18 vehicles, which are supplied by British manufacturer Alexander Dennis, and are a single deck version of their fellow Enviro 400’s which Blackpool Transport currently have in their fleet, brings the total new buses brought into the fleet since 2015 to 73.
Our partnership with Alexander Dennis has gone from strength to strength since 2016. We have received 55 double deck vehicles so far, all delivered to an excellent standard and spent time with ADL and our customers to get the single deck versions spot on for our customers.
This year our launch events will focus on meeting customers along routes 3 and 4 and show them our commitment to bring modern buses to Blackpool and the Fylde. BTS’ events will be a chance to engage Blackpool’s residents at either end of these two routes and showcase those new vehicles dedicated to that area.
Managing Director, Blackpool Transport
The brand new buses, worth £9.7 million, will operate on Routes 3 and 4 providing services for local schools, Blackpool and Fylde Colleges, Whitegate Drive Health Centre and customers travelling to-and-from Cleveleys, Marton and Mereside Tesco.
Blackpool Transport is holding two customer launch events for customers at Tesco Mereside and Cleveleys on 25th June at 10am until 4pm.
An open invitation is extended to anybody wishing to attend the launch event where 1/2 of the buses will be on display as well as staff from Blackpool Transport on hand to answer any questions and hand out information and prizes to customers.
