ADL’s Enviro400 in spotlight with Blackpool Transport05 December 2017

Bus operator Blackpool Transport has taken delivery of 20 Enviro400 City buses, from Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL), as part of the local authority’s £18m long-term plan to modernise rail and bus operations at the seaside resort.

The new additions join 35 other Enviro400 City buses already in the fleet.

They will be used on a 19-week rail replacement contract, before joining the Palladium fleet once the project is complete.

Blackpool Transport aims to have the 140-strong bus fleet renewed by the end of 2019.

The buses feature ADL’s Quick Release Glazing system, wood effect flooring, e-leather seats, free Wi-Fi, USB charging points, next-stop audio and visual announcements, mobile phone holders, on-board infotainment screens and tables on the upper deck.

James Carney, financial and commercial director at Blackpool Transport, says: “We have again worked closely with the team at ADL to push the boundaries of bus technology.”
