Stagecoach Manchester Invests in New Buses for the Region

25 Jan 2016

Stagecoach Manchester has this month unveiled 25 new double-decker buses, which will serve the South and East Manchester areas.

The £5 million investment, in modern and efficient vehicles, will improve the services for local people by providing increased capacity and upgraded levels of both safety and comfort.  

Complimentary Wi-Fi, which is now present in over half of the Stagecoach Manchester fleet, is provided to further improve the experience for those on board, while low floor access is fitted to help elderly and disabled passengers as well as those with children.

Stagecoach Manchester managing director, Christopher Bowles, said: “The new fleet of 25 Enviro 400 buses, which have the latest Euro 6 engines, are part of our continued investment in services to improve journeys for people travelling with us in Greater Manchester.

“The new buses will give our fleet an even more modern profile and enable customers on many of our busiest services to benefit from the latest standards which the industry has to offer.” 

The new fleet of Enviro 400s was built in the UK by Alexander Dennis Ltd and is fitted with the latest EU approved Euro 6 engines, which have exhaust treatment processes to significantly reduce the level of carbon emissions. 

Christopher added: “We continue to lessen the impact public transport has on the environment both through noise pollution and our carbon footprint. These new vehicles represent our on-going commitment to the local environment.”
