10 New Enviro400 Citys for Blackpool Transport

Blackpool Transport has launched ten new ADL Enviro400 City buses at a stakeholder event in the town this month.

The buses, which are the first of their kind in the UK outside of London, represent a £2.2million investment and build on the £1.7million investment made in ten new buses in 2015.

Blackpool Transport says it aims to have all its buses no older than five years by 2020.

The new Palladium branding and livery was designed in collaboration between Blackpool Transport and JR Buzz. The new buses feature E-Leather seats, wood-effect flooring, free wi-fi and USB charging points on the lower deck, along with next-stop audio announcements.

“A vital part of our transport plans is the modernisation of our bus fleet and the introduction of next-generation, low emission vehicles,” says Jane Cole, managing director, Blackpool Transport. “That journey has taken another significant step forward with the launch of these 10 ADL Enviro400 City buses today and our collaboration with ADL has allowed us to create a specific design for our customers, our drivers and will attract non-bus users too.”
