“Buses are an essential method of travel for many in Salisbury. And I am delighted that we have been able to invest an extra £750,000 in our fleet here,” said Salisbury Reds Managing Director, Andrew Wickham.

“These new buses – which will sport the striking new Salisbury Reds livery – are set to deliver exceptional performance, as well as offering environmental benefits including lower emissions – thanks to their Euro VI engines.”

The buses also include lighter floor colours to aid dementia sufferers: “Many of those with the disease are uneasy about crossing darker floors – fearing them to be like ‘black holes’,” added Andrew.

“We want to make all our new buses more accessible for all – and this is just one aspect of that.”
