Go North East officially launched their new Angel hybrid buses last week. The vehicles are the result of a £4.5 million investment by Go North East, supported by the Government's green bus fund. The high specification hybrid double deck buses for its Angel 21 service were launched with 'green angels' travelling around on buses giving out free prizes including free travel, Starbucks and Pizza Hut gift cards, concert tickets donated by Metro Radio and Angel branded goodies.
The buses have been in operation since 22nd October.
