Wrightbus International, the international arm of Wrights Group, promoted the GCC spec StreetLite at this year’s UITP Mena exhibition in Dubai. The company has had a permanent presence in the Middle East since 2013 when it opened an office at Masdar City, Abu Dhabi, which is headed up by Paul Brannigan.
Paul said, ‘We continue to witness growing demand from GCC customers seeking more fuel efficient buses with lower emissions, increased urban mobility and optimised payloads, all of which our StreetLite offers. Authorities and operators in the region continue to adopt and implement world class standards comparable to those which we witness in our other core markets of London, Hong Kong and Singapore. Our product is highly competitive both in terms of purchase price and cost of operation, in our midi bus StreetLite we have a product which can greatly enhance operator returns.’
There was also a Bharat Benz branded nine tonne school bus developed for the Indian market by Wrightbus International, in partnership with Daimler Buses, on the Daimler stand.
