Stagecoach in Oxfordshire has announced the roll out of its new fleet of 21 buses will commence on 28th  October. The new buses worth over £5million will launch on the S1 and S2 routes, operating between Witney and Oxford.

It’s the first major upgrade since the gold fleet was launched 10 years ago.

The brand-new Stagecoach buses are being introduced as part of an £80million nationwide bus and coach investment. From 28th
  October two of the new buses will go into service with the remaining 19 being gradually added to the fleet, with completion set for November 2019.

Passengers using the S1 and S2 service will be able to enjoy brand new features including USB charging points, LED reading lights and on-board next stop announcements.

Stagecoach in Oxfordshire managing director Chris Coleman said: “Stagecoach in Oxfordshire is committed to investing in the latest technology to help lower our emissions and this is an important milestone for us in Oxfordshire.  We are able to combine greener and cleaner vehicles with additional features that provide the latest in passenger comfort.

“Our customers can now charge their devices, read with a reading light and be confident they won’t miss their stop with the on-board next stop announcements.”

The 21 new MMC E400 double deck buses, which will be branded in standard Stagecoach livery, are built in the UK and will replace the current Stagecoach Gold fleet which were introduced in 2009.
