Alexander Dennis, a subsidiary of NFI Group Inc., one of the world’s leading independent global bus manufacturers, today announced that it has supplied an Enviro400 double decker to Bath Bus Company, part of RATP Group.
The new Enviro400 is Bath Bus Company’s first Alexander Dennis vehicle. It entered service in the autumn on the operator’s busy Air Decker route, which provides a direct connection between Bath and Bristol Airport that also serves locations along the route.
The double decker has been fitted with luggage racking to accommodate airport passengers’ suitcases, while tables on the upper deck allow groups travelling together to enjoy their journey in a social setting. The vehicle’s Alexander Dennis SmartSeats are trimmed, and handrails painted in RATP Group colours.
Bath Bus Company Managing Director Derek White said: “Our flagship Air Decker service continues to rebound on its tenth anniversary as people’s appetite for travel returns. The new Alexander Dennis Enviro400 makes the journey even more comfortable, whether it’s for incoming visitors keen to see Bath’s splendour or residents flying out of Bristol Airport.”
Alexander Dennis Regional Sales Manager Mark Taylor said: “We’re delighted to have won over Bath Bus Company as a new customer with the benefits of our Enviro400 double decker, including its proven and easy-to-maintain driveline and an interior tailored to offer the best experience for Air Decker travellers. We’ll continue to support them with our one-stop aftermarket offering from AD24 to make sure this new bus keeps adding value.”
