Richard Bros have added four Optare Metrocity buses to their fleet. Richard Bros are a third generation family run business and have been operating since 1936. They are now a major transport provider in Ceredigion & Pembrokeshire.
The Euro 5, 11.5m, MetroCity buses seat up to 41 and are finished to a high specification, featuring WIFI, Passenger Announcement Systems, Passenger Count and Telematics. The vehicles will operate on the high profile TrawsCymru T5 route supported by the Welsh Assembly which operates from Aberystwyth to Haverfordwest.
Marteine Richards, Director at Richard Bros said, “We already operate 18 Optare vehicles, including Solo, Versa and Tempo models and we are very happy with the performance of these vehicles, which have also proven to be extremely popular with our passengers. We were particularly impressed with the MetroCity’s manoeuvrability, styling and potential for fuel economies over heavier vehicles with similar seating capacities. Steph Baker, Optare Regional Sales Manager, worked closely with us in putting the specification together and ensured the vehicles we delivered on time to go straight into service.”
Steph Baker, Regional Sales Manager, Optare, said, “We are delighted to be supplying Richard Bros, a loyal customer of Optare with their first MetroCity buses.”
