The first 30 11.8m Enviro200s are due to arrive this spring, with the remainder expected early next year
Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL) has announced an order from Trent Barton for 55 Enviro200 single deck buses. Delivery will take place in spring 2020 and early 2021. The new buses will continue an established partnership between the manufacturer and operator, taking the total number of Enviro200 buses built for the Trent Barton and Kinchbus fleet since 2016 to 136. Once the new buses are in service, the type will account for nearly 50% of Trent Barton 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 interiors designed to provide an unrivalled journey experience for passengers.
Jeff Counsell, Managing Director at Trent Barton and Kinchbus, said: “Our customers love the 81 Enviro200 buses already in our fleet. So, we’re excited about providing their exceptional on-board experience to many more customers on more routes over the next 12 months.
“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.”
Richard Matthews, Retail Sales Director at Alexander Dennis, added: “We are delighted that Trent Barton has chosen to upgrade its fleet with our Enviro200 for the fifth year in a row, and placed their biggest order with us to date. We tailor Britain’s favourite single-decker bus to the high standards that Trent Barton customers are accustomed to, and are convinced they will be popular with passengers, drivers and engineers alike.”
