The route will begin operating from 18 May, with the vehicles set to be retrofitted to meet Euro VI standards prior to that date.
Finally, the 640 route currently operated by Metroline will transfer to Sullivan Buses on 31 August.

The South Mimms, Hertfordshire-based company will use a pair of 2011 Euro V double-deckers on the service, which will once again be retrofitted with emissions control systems to ensure compliance with Euro VI standards.
