Compass Travel, which operates a network of bus and school contract services across East and West Sussex, Brighton and Surrey has introduced a further four Enviro200 single decks from Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL).
All of the Euro6 9.7m 34-seat vehicles, complete with CCTV, WiFi, USB chargers and under-seat lighting have gone straight into service in Brighton and Hove on routes 37 and 37B between Meadowview and Bristol Estate.
The move follows confirmation of a new three-year contract with the City Council to provide extended services on the routes.
Compass Travel Engineering Director, Malcolm Gallichan, said: “We are delighted to have secured this route again and investment in these low emission Enviro200s is a further demonstration of our commitment to provide quality services, while also contributing to the broader efforts being made to improve air quality.”
Councillor Dee Simpson, Mayor of Brighton & Hove, having just cut the tape to
launch the start of the new service. Alongside her is Chris Chatfield, Managing Director of Compass Travel.
Councillor Gill Mitchell, Chair of the City Council’s Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee, said: “We are pleased to be supporting buses that connect residents from outlying areas to the rest of the city. Making the city accessible to residents is a priority and this contract will provide a better evening service as well as regular daytime services with new, low emission buses.”
