Yellow Buses extends fleet with Euro 6 Volvo B5TL08 April 2015

Yellow Buses, part of the RATP Group, has taken delivery of eight Volvo B5TL Euro 6 buses with Wrightbus Gemini 3 bodywork, following a delivery of five of the B5TL’s Euro 5 models last year.

The Bournemouth-based operator selected its latest vehicles after finding the previous additions offered good reliability and fuel efficiency, coupled with strong back-up and support.

The B5TL has a D5K four-cylinder engine, rated at 240bhp at 1900rpm, and has a maximum torque of 918Nm at 1200-1600rpm.

Standard features include electrically driven power steering assistance, automatic engine oil top-up system, LED coolant level check, I-Start dual battery system and Volvo Telematics.

Malcolm Venn, head of engineering for Yellow Buses, says: "These new Volvo double-deckers will allow our passengers in Bournemouth to travel in comfort and style on some of the most environmentally-friendly buses available anywhere in the UK."
