Bluestar and Red Funnel Ferries have together unveiled a brand new double decker bus to serve their Quayconnect partnership.
Quayconnect is a bus service operated by Bluestar on behalf of Red Funnel, which links Southampton Central Station with the city’s ferry terminals.
The new ADL Enviro 400 City bus offers more comfortable seating, free WiFi and striking new livery.
Bluestar General Manager, Richard Tyldsley, has said:
“We’re delighted by the popularity of this long-established bus service. With an increase in passenger numbers over recent years, Quayconnect has gone from strength-to-strength. So we have made a significant investment in this new double decker vehicle, to allow for more passengers and further improve integration between ferries and trains.”
Murray Carter, customer services director at Red Funnel, added:
“Red Funnel very much welcomes this investment by Bluestar in Quayconnect. As well as providing a superior travel experience and extra passenger capacity to cope with growing demand for our ferry services, the new double decker is equipped with a Euro 6 low emissions engine – which will help improve air quality in Southampton.
“The upgrade to a Euro 6 bus was also one of the commitments outlined in our new ‘Red goes Green’ environmental strategy.”
