Edinburgh Coach Lines Takes Their First New Enviro200 for Local Edinburgh Bus Service

Alexander Dennis, has announced that it has supplied an Enviro200 single deck bus to Edinburgh Coach Lines, part of Dublin-based Eirebus group.

The low-emission bus is the operator’s first Alexander Dennis vehicle bought new. It has joined the Service 13 fleet that provides a vital bus service in parts of Edinburgh that aren’t adequately served by larger operators, running between Blackhall, the city centre and Lochend. The route is supported by Edinburgh City Council.

The compact single decker is 9.7m long and seats up to 34 passengers on comfortable Alexander Dennis SmartSeats with three-point belts. Drivers enjoy a radio and CD unit in the cab area.

Edinburgh Coach Lines General Manager, Katrina Scott, says: “Our Service 13 is an important link in Edinburgh’s transport network and its passengers benefit from a modern fleet that has now been further upgraded with this brand-new Enviro200 from Alexander Dennis. It is the first of the type in our fleet after we were attracted by its versatility as well as the great fuel economy offered by its low-emission driveline.”

Alexander Dennis Retail Sales Director, Charlie Miller, adds: “The Enviro200 remains easy to maintain and operate and when fitted with our SmartPack efficiency technology, its fuel economy is hard to beat. We greatly appreciate Edinburgh Coach Lines’ support of British bus manufacturing and will continue to be at their side with our full range of AD24 aftermarket support.”
