Million pound investment in single deckers

BUS company Stagecoach Yorkshire has invested nearly £1 million in a fleet of eight new vehicles for Sheffield.

The single decker buses have been introduced on service 25 between Woodhouse, Richmond, Manor Park, city centre, Heeley, Woodseats and Bradway.

The the ADL Enviro 200-model single deckers have the latest Euro 5 engines and are low-floor and easy access.

It is the second major investment by Stagecoach Yorkshire in the space of a month and follows the introduction of six new buses for service one, in Barnsley, costing £700,000.

Paul Lynch, managing director, Stagecoach Yorkshire, said: “This latest major investment demonstrates our commitment to raising the standard, quality and reliability of buses for the benefit of passengers.

“The vehicles meet the very latest in engine standards and are part of our commitment to reducing our impact on the environment.”
