Marshalls of Sutton on Trent has purchased its first Optare MetroCity. The bus will join the existing service fleet consisting of two Optare Versas and six Solos, serving route 90 between Newark and Nottingham. Established in 1989, the family run business is now recognised as one of the leading coach and bus operators in the East Midlands. MD of Marshalls, John Marshall, said, ‘We already operate a number of Optare Versas and when we were looking for a new addition to our fleet, we trialled the Optare MetroCity. We were so impressed with the performance, fuel economy and passenger feedback that we decided it would be the perfect fit for us.’
Optare supplied the bus directly.
