Southdown Buses, one of the leading independent operators in the Home Counties has introduced three new Enviro200s from Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL).
All three are 8.9m models with 30 seats. They have Cummins ISBe 4.5litre engines, Allison 2100 transmissions and are fitted with USB chargers, under-seat lighting, wireless bell push systems and LED destination boards.
They will operate on Route 422, which has been introduced to provide public transport to and from a new residential development at Westvale Park, located between Crawley and Reigate. They will also run on the recently modified Route 424 between Redhill and Crawley.
Steve Wallis, Managing Director of Southdown Buses, commented: “We now have a fleet of 26 vehicles operating across Surrey and Kent. They are focused on towns such as Oxted, Caterham, Redhill, Crawley, East Grinstead and Reigate, providing public transport, shopper buses and contract services with companies such as Tesco Stores, as well as supporting rail replacement programmes when necessary.
“The Enviro200 is a class-leading bus and an established market leader, so it was the obvious choice for these routes. This latest round of investment is a further demonstration of our commitment to continuous improvement and the creation of a modern fleet that is second to none.”
