Kevin Wood, Director of Business Development for the ADL coach brand, Plaxton, said, “This is a particularly exciting day for ADL, these represent the first Plaxton coaches to enter service with a European operator for a generation and we will be continuing the work we have done with PolskiBus.com to ensure their expectations of these milestone vehicles are fully realised. We are actively pursuing opportunities with a number of other potential customers, Elite i does of course offer significant potential benefits and we firmly believe it can satisfy a niche where high capacity is a demand”
