NHS buses on rental
Alexander Dennis worked with Dawsongroup to provide a pair of Alexander Dennis Enviro200 buses to Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust on a rental solution.
The two 8.9-metre Enviro200 have upgraded the Hospital Hopper service which provides a connection between the trust’s two hospitals in Surrey for staff, patients and visitors. With 30 seats and a spacious wheelchair bay they provide extra capacity on the route, which had previously been operated by minibuses. The buses were built in Scarborough.
Jan Kruger, Transport & Fleet Manager at Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, says: “Our Hospital Hopper is a vital link between our two sites for our team as well as our patients and visitors. We are delighted to be able to provide additional capacity for them with our new buses, which combine a great seating capacity with outstanding manoeuvrability.”
Fraser Innes, Sales Director at Dawsongroup bus and coach, says: “A key benefit of our rental packages is working closely with our clients to fully understand their requirements and deliver a solution tailored to their business. We have been delighted to work with Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to deliver on all fronts and help expand its Hospital Hopper
