Optare Metrocity delivers fuel savings for Howards Travel09 December 2016

Howards Travel Group has taken delivery of a new Optare Metrocity and is reporting a 13% fuel saving compared to other single-deckers in its fleet.

The 10.8m Metrocity, with 115kW Mercedes Euro 5 engine, seats up to 40 and the spec includes e-leather seating and wood effect flooring.

“We were extremely impressed by the performance and build quality of the demo Metrocity vehicle we trialled earlier this year, says Ian Howard, managing director at the Warrington-based operator.

“Our new Metrocity has only just gone into service but we are already seeing a 13% improvement in fuel efficiency when compared to other single-deck vehicles within our fleet operating on that route.”
