The order will put 8 brand new single deck buses and 19 double deck buses on the streets of East Yorkshire. All of the new vehicles meet the highest Euro 6 environmental standards and helping keep our air clean and free from pollution.
The first batch of single deck buses will arrive at the end of summer. They will be used on the company’s popular Service 7/7A circular routes between Scarborough and also Eastfield.
The double-deckers will arrive in two batches, with the first 11 entering service in autumn this year. These first few will be used on routes in and around Hull. While the final batch of double deckers will arrive early in 2020.
The new buses will all feature comfortable seating, free Wi-Fi, USB charging points. They will all also be fitted with next stop announcement systems.
Buses arriving this year will be locally built at the ADL factory in Scarborough. A move the company says will help to support jobs and the local economy.
The buses will build on East Yorkshire’s existing investment that already totals around £2M. This investment has resulted in new coaches, two new low-emission single deck buses and eight refurbished Coaster buses join the fleet.
