First rolls out more Wi-Fi
Following First Scotland East’s £1.5m January investment in ten new ADL Enviro300s for service X95 (Edinburgh – Carlisle), it has now fitted complementary Wi-Fi to a further six buses on the route. This means each of the 16 vehicles that run on the X95 are now fitted with Wi-Fi. Additionally, the interior of each vehicle has been modified to allow greater flexibility for both buggies and wheelchairs, whilst providing additional grab rails for all passengers whether seated or standing.
Operations Director of First Scotland East, John Gorman, said, ‘The new buses have proved very popular with customers – the fresh new feel, extra room at the front of the bus and leather seats have all been welcomed. However, it is the complementary Wi-Fi that has undoubtedly been most popular. Therefore, it was an easy decision to equip our entire Service X95 fleet with Wi-Fi. Our investment in new buses and the additional Wi-Fi reflects our determination to improve services for our customers and our commitment to encourage more people to use our buses and to use them more often.’
