First Solent have launched 24 new Alexander Dennis Enviro200 buses for Portsmouth. The vehicles are the most environmentally friendly diesel powered buses available and conform to the latest Euro 6 standard for exhaust emissions and feature start-stop technology.
All have complimentary WiFi, at-seat USB charging points, next stop announcements and sport a brand new look with an attractive Portsmouth-inspired 'Star' livery which also includes comfortable seats in co-ordinated blue colours.
During the launch ceremony at Portsmouth Guildhall, First Solent's Managing Director, Marc Reddy, said: "The buses look and feel fantastic and will deliver a first-class travel experience for our customers. With the new fleet we expect to attract even more passengers, which will positively impact on congestion and air quality in the area whilst also supporting the local economy enabling even more people to access education, leisure and work."
The low-floor Alexander Dennis Enviro200 offer comfortable seating and wooden vinyl flooring add to an attractive travel experience. The 11.5m long buses can carry 73 passengers, with up to 39 seated plus 34 standees.
Marie Connell, Business Development Manager at Alexander Dennis, said: "We have tailored Britain’s favourite single deck bus, our Enviro200, to offer a safe and comfortable environment for drivers and passengers on the Portsmouth Star. Our SmartPack efficiency technology further reduces emissions from the Euro 6 engines, helping to improve air quality and benefiting the environment."
