Yellow Buses is going green.

The Bournemouth-based company has taken delivery of six new double-deckers described as the most environmentally friendly diesel vehicles on the road.

The British-built Alexander Dennis MMC E400 vehicles have ultra-low carbon Euro 6 engines and the latest stop-start technology to reduce emissions, noise and fuel usage.

Their lighter weight will also reduce environmental impact and improve fuel consumption.

Other features of the £1.3 million fleet include leather seats and tinted glass, USB chargers for all seats, free wi-fi, audio ‘next stop’ announcements, extra space for buggies and shopping trolleys and easier to read front destination displays.

The buses also have full internal and external CCTV, visual ‘next stop’ interior signs, full wheelchair access and real time tracking which links to the journey planner on Yellow Buses’ app and website.

Andrew Smith, Managing Director, Yellow Buses, said: “These are impressive state-of-the-art vehicles and a very welcome addition to our fleet.

“They will be used across our local network, allowing as many passengers as possible to experience the very best in 21st century bus travel.”
