Alexander Dennis Limited’s (ADL’s) latest Enviro500 full flat floor, three door, two staircase double decker has been displayed at the LTA-UITP Singapore International Transport Congress and Exhibition (SITCE) in Suntec City, Singapore. The concept bus, commissioned by the Land Transport Authority (LTA), the Singaporean transport authority, is the result of close collaboration between the transport agency and the manufacturer. Exhibited at a series of Bus Carnivals at venues across Singapore in March and April 2016, visitors were encouraged to provide their feedback on the vehicle’s design. Its on board specifications include high back contoured seating, Wi-Fi, USB charging points at all seats, mood lighting and passenger information screens. The driver has a CCTV monitor for all round views of staircases and exit doors.
Director and General Manager of Alexander Dennis Asia Pacific, Paul Davies, said, ‘As a global business, we embrace this type of major customer involvement initiative. Our collaboration with the LTA to develop this concept bus underlines our commitment to this critically important market. With over 200 Enviro500 vehicles in circulation here, we already have a strong foundation in Singapore. In summer 2015, we invested in a new, centrally based, local HQ in Tagore 8, which is headed up by Bill Thong.’
