23 April 2024

Alexander Dennis announced that bus operator Trentbarton has ordered a further 29 Alexander Dennis Enviro200 low-emission buses. They are fitted with Alexander Dennis’s SmartPack efficiency technology, which combines engine stop/start with auxiliary load management to keep down their environmental impact and operating cost.

The 11.8m long single deckers will be joining trentbarton’s fleet this summer, 23 of them operating on ilkeston flyer, the villager, H1 and the mickleover, improving the journeys of customers on these routes into Derby from towns such as Alfreton, Burton, Heanor and Ilkeston, plus dozens of villages. The remaining vehicles will be spares for the wider fleet. They follow 20 similar vehicles bought last year for the threes route connecting Nottingham, Hucknall, Kirkby, Sutton and Mansfield. The Enviro200 will feature three large skylights to create a light space inside

and bright LED destination screens, under-seat lighting and an illuminated front logo. They're equipped with USB power at every seat and wireless charging docks. Trentbarton has in the last two years invested more than £10 million in more than 40 new low-emission buses. With this last order the number of low-emission buses in the fleet will be more than 200. Trentbarton is replacing buses that are more than ten years old which will make a significant improvement to the quality of the service.
