Alexander Dennis, a subsidiary of NFI Group Inc., one of the world’s leading independent global bus manufacturers, today announced that it has delivered a new Enviro400 double deck bus to English independent operator Weardale Motors Services.

The Enviro400 is fitted with 85 comfortable seats with seatbelts, USB charging ports and wood-effect flooring to give passengers a comfortable experience on board. A digital tachograph enables the family-owned operator to use the double decker flexibly from its base in County Durham.

Managing Director Anthony Gibson, whose grandfather founded the business in the 1920s, welcomed the new addition to the Weardale fleet: “The Alexander Dennis Enviro400 offers us great value for money through its combination of high capacity and standard bus technology. We bought a similar bus two years ago and it has been easy to maintain and efficient to operate, making this an easy choice for further investment.”

Martin Dunleavy, Regional Sales Manager for Alexander Dennis, added: “I’m delighted that our Enviro400 has established itself in the Weardale Motor Services fleet. I look forward to further supporting Anthony and his team, not least with two Enviro200 single deckers already in build for delivery later this year.”
