The Oxford Bus Company placed six Daimler-powered Wrightbus Streetdecks into service last Monday on the Brookes Bus network.

The Streetdecks replace a batch of 2009 Scania/ADL Enviro400s and some of the 2014 batch of ADL Enviro400 MMCs.

The specification includes a long wheelbase chassis, white LED destination blinds, next stop announcements, USB ports, high-back seating and WiFi.

Each vehicle has a personalised registration that relates to a degree that can be obtained at Oxford Brookes University, with the vehicle vinyls also representing that degree.
