Arriva London to be the first operator of the New ADL Enviro400H City Bus
Arriva London is always striving to be at the forefront of innovative ideas to make the customer experience more fulfilling. The recent announcement that they will be the first operator to take delivery of the brand new Enviro400H City bus from Alexander Dennis is a continuation of that philosophy.
In the Enviro400H City, alterations have been made to give the bus what ADL CEO Colin Robertson describes as a “London look,” The first 19 buses enter service with Arriva London’s new contract on route 78, between Shoreditch and Nunhead later this year.
Colin went on to say:- “Significantly, it also represents an evolution of Britain’s best-selling hybrid electric bus, our Enviro400H, which has a reputation second-to-none for fuel economy, reduced emissions, reliability and all-round performance.”
In the London specification, the 10.4m, two-door City will be capable of carrying 90 passengers. Underlining ADL’s work with TfL, the bus is fitted with their trademark ‘roundel’.
November is the planned entry into service date of the first Enviro400H City and Peter Batty, Commercial Director of Arriva London said: “We are delighted to be working with ADL and TfL on this project. The new look is stunning and brings together a whole range of passenger and driver advantages, including a wrap-around windscreen and glazed stairwell.”
