Nottingham City Transport (NCT) is expecting to take delivery of 22 Scania-bodied ADL Enviro400 buses this year, all at full height.

Anthony Carver Smith, Marketing Manager at NCT, told CBW: “The first seven are due on the road in March and will be 15 plate and used on South Notts 1 between Nottingham and Loughborough. They’re already in build in Falkirk.

“They are largely the same spec as the 40 we had last year, but the seven for South Notts will have high back upper deck seating, given the length of the route. They will feature free WiFi, audio announcements and real-time information as standard along with the interior green mood lighting. Total seating capacity is 74.

“We are using Altro Flooring on these buses, which is different from the 40 we purchased last year.

“The final fifteen are due on the road in September and will be used to upgrade key City routes. They’ll be identical to the other seven, but the upper deck will have the normal low back seating.

“At present, we’re keeping quiet on where they’re going!”
