Alexander Dennis, a subsidiary of NFI Group Inc., one of the world’s leading independent global bus manufacturers, today announced that Alexander Dennis and Mistral recently handed over a second batch of five Alexander Dennis Enviro200 to Galleon Travel, following five vehicles delivered earlier this year.

The Essex-based operator was looking to replace ten older vehicles in order to improve fleet age profile, resulting in enhanced passenger comfort and reduced maintenance costs.

The ten brand new buses, boasting wood effect flooring, multi-colour route displays, next stop passenger displays, CCTV and USB sockets, will be in operation servicing council and commercial routes across Essex and Herts under Galleon’s Central Connect bus division.

Mark Taylor, Alexander Dennis Retail Sales Manager, says: “This delivery takes the total number of Enviro200 single deckers we’ve built for Galleon Travel to 14 – all of them in less than two years since the company first bought new buses from us. We’re delighted with this resounding vote of confidence in our British-built products and look forward to further supporting Matt and his team.”

Freddie Fuller, Mistral National Retail Sales Manager, adds: “These ten new vehicles look great in their Central Connect livery and will certainly help to uphold the operator’s desire of running accessible vehicles for their passengers, as well as modern, fuel efficient, low emission buses to maintain a low carbon footprint.”
