D&G Bus have taken delivery of 3 Optare Solos to add to their fleet. The buses join 27 Optare Solos (including one low carbon Solo), 11 Optare Versas and 3 Optare Metrocity buses already in the D&G Bus fleet.
The 9.2m, Solo with Mercedes, 115kW, Euro 5, engine and Allison 2100 transmission, seats up to 31. The buses will operate on service 12, linking Leighton Hospital, Crewe Bus Station, Brookhouse Estate and Shavington, running up to every 30 minutes seven days a week.
David Reeves, Managing Director, D&G Bus said, “This latest purchase of Optare Solos brings the total investment in new buses made by D&G Bus over the last year to £1.5million.”
Steph Baker, Business Development Manager, Optare, said, “I am delighted that D&G Bus have again chosen the Solo with its excellent reputation for fuel efficiency and its versatile performance over both city and rural applications.”
