Almost surruptitiously Blackpool Transport introduced yet a further tranche of new ADL single deck buses into service at the end of July. Neatly conforming to the bodywork of earlier examples now used on the 3 and 4 (and other) services replacing the Solo vehicles - these latest deliveries are long wheelbase versions and take over Service 6 between Mereside and Grange Park.
Their arrival reinforces yet further the Palladium branding now dominant on the bus side of BTS operations. Numbered in the 500 series they are yet another success for the Falkirk company in its strengthening relationship with Blackpool Transport. Some selective images taken today featuring the ADL presence on the Fylde coast. Below : New 571 arrives at Mereside Tesco on the 6 Service and the interior 'saloon'.
