Southern Vectis unveils new fleet
Go-Ahead owned Southern Vectis has launched a new fleet of eight vehicles for its Route 1. The four ADL Enviro200s and four Enviro400s were formally unveiled at the Isle of Wight Conflict History and Remembrance Museum in Northwood, Cowes. An improved timetable rolled out when the new buses’ entered service.
Southern Vectis MD, Andrew Wickham, said, ‘In our December 2013 survey, customers were very clear about the enhancements they wanted to see on this popular service and we have listened to them. In fact, we have invested £1.2m in our Newport to Cowes route and we’re looking forward to seeing the buses out and about, transporting those who use this service whilst living on or visiting the island. Southern Vectis is introducing a number of changes to Route 1, providing more seats during busy journeys and the very latest technology onboard our buses.’
