Bus passengers are faced with sitting on a wide range of bus seats that vary from nothing more than a padded board to more traditional seats found in older vehicles. Passengers travelling on ADL's latest vehicles will now be sitting on ADL'sSmartSeat™.
According to the recent press release the new seat, which will be fitted on Enviro200 and Enviro400's, has been developed to the manufacturer’s demanding brief by a market-leading supplier. Operators will benefit from direct aftermarket support for the SmartSeat through ADL’s own organisation.
The new ADL SmartSeat features a contemporary design with ergonomically formed backrests and seat upholstery as part of a robust and durable construction with a low total weight.
Passenger amenities will be accommodated by a seatback console, and USB power sockets can be integrated into the back shells or mounted on the seat frame to suit operators’ preferences. Care has been taken to ensure the easy replacement of parts, maximising vehicle uptime.
Arthur Whiteside, ADL’s Managing Director UK Sales, explains: “We’re constantly working to enhance the customer experience for bus operators and the ADL SmartSeat takes this to a new level by providing a fully integrated, quality seating solution that gives our customers a single point of contact during vehicle specification, and ensures direct and reliable support through our best-in-class aftermarket network.”
The ADL SmartSeat is available for immediate delivery on Enviro200 stock, as well as to order on all Enviro200 and Enviro400 models. Seat-belted versions will follow from the third quarter of this year to complete the range.
