Optare buses out in force for the Tour de Yorkshire 07 May 2015

Optare buses played their part in the Tour de Yorkshire celebrations last weekend (2 May 2015), carrying passengers from the surrounding villages to Selby on a free service operated by Arriva.

"The atmosphere on the buses on the day was fantastic and we were thrilled at the response of local people to the service and the Optare buses," states Enrico Vassallo, Optare chief executive.

In addition to the shuttle service, Optare's latest all-electric bus was also on display at the new Selby leisure centre.

Optare is the largest manufacturer of all-electric buses in the UK, building these and its low-emissions diesel buses at its factory in Sherburn in Elmet.
