Alexander Dennis is supplying nine new Enviro200MMC single deck buses to Compass Travel this year. The operator already has over 65 Alexander Dennis buses in service, and four new 10.8-metre Enviro200s with 40 Alexander Dennis SmartSeats have now been completed by the manufacturer and are about to join its fleet. Another five have been ordered for delivery in the autumn, and will be built to a length of 8.9 metres and seat 30.

Compass Travel Managing Director Chris Chatfield said: “The Enviro200 makes up most of our bus fleet and has proved itself to be an extremely reliable performer that helps us keep our operating costs down with its excellent fuel economy. Combined with the first-rate aftermarket support we enjoy through AD24, it has therefore been an easy choice to return to Alexander Dennis for this year’s new buses and we’re looking at a potential order for five more for the first quarter of next year.”

Alexander Dennis Regional Sales Manager Mark Taylor added: “Compass Travel is a great success story in the South of England, consistently growing its network and offering customers an excellent experience thanks to a well-maintained fleet. I’m delighted that our Enviro200 will continue to underpin this and I look forward to handing over this year’s vehicles to Chris and his team.”
