ADL is to unveil a revised styling to its Enviro500 at APTA’s (American Public Transport Association) Expo 2011 in New Orleans on October 3.

All three options in the ADL product line-up – transit, commuter and open top – are set to benefit from the revised styling which will be progressively rolled out over the next 18 months, including vehicles which will form part of ‘significant new transit orders’.

ADL has also revealed that in addition to its high-capacity tri-axle Enviro500 models, which have proved popular in North America, it is to launch a new, low height, “go anywhere” double deck range. These buses will have the same carrying capacity as existing models (around 100) and retain the manoeuvrability which has made the Enviro500 a big favourite with drivers – but, equally important, by virtue of their reduced height they will open up a raft of new route options across the USA and Canada.
