First Glasgow reaches milestone investment
First Glasgow has reached what it describes as an important milestone after investing over £30m in 150 new Alexander Dennis low emission buses in the last six months, with more investment to come.
96 Enviro400 double deckers have been allocated to four busy urban routes, while ten Enviro400 City double-deckers are dedicated to the Glasgow Airport Express. The single deck fleet has also seen significant investment with 44 new Enviro200 buses.
All the new buses have high-backed seats, USB charging sockets and provision for audio-visual next stop announcements. Customers on the Glasgow Airport Express additionally benefit from extra glazing, mood lighting, table seating and wireless phone charging.
To advance safety, some of the new buses have been fitted with the SmartVision system which replaces traditional mirrors with high-definition digital cameras and displays mounted inside the cab for direct and clear visibility.
