Bath Bus Company has taken deliver of two new Volvo B5TL double decks, the company’s first Euro 6 vehicles.
This is not the first time the company has selected Volvo, with excellent fuel consumption rates, reliability and low noise levels all being cited as key reasons in the purchasing decision making process.
Each bus has a passenger capacity of 79 and will be deployed on tourist routes throughout the World Heritage City of Bath, where strict operational rules apply. Featuring the UNVI Urbis 25 half canopied upper for sightseeing, a significant number of adaptations has also been made in response to feedback received from drivers and other operational staff -following experience with last year’s deliveries from the same manufacturers.
Martin Curtis, Manager Director for Bath Bus Company, said: “Our experience of Volvo – UNVI has led to our selection of this tried and tested combination once again. We’ve been delighted with the fuel economy received from our previous Volvo buses as well as the excellent service and support from Volvo Truck & Bus Wales & West, with whom we have a very good working relationship, making this an easy choice for us”.
