Coming to a bus stop near you
The introduction of a new single deck design being trialled on Service 5 between Halfway House and Victoria Hospital this week provides no doubt useful comparison with the Mercedes Citaro buses acquired by BTS in 2015.
BTS have committed to purchase of ten double deck buses from the Alexander Dennis firm (ADL) for delivery mid 2016. The same company are also marketing the single deck version of their latest model and the ADL demonstrator is on loan to BTS in a subdued grey, silver and pale green design.
Captured arriving at the Blackpool North, or is it Talbot Gateway? stop this Tuesday.
It will be interesting to see whether the single deck ADL model catches the mood of
BTS in the same way as the double deck version. The author did not have time to sample a ride on the demonstrator - hopefully this omission may be corrected later in the week. Apologies for the lousy photographs taken in a rush on a typically dismal February day with the equally depressing Wilko structure as backdrop.
