Nottingham City Transport complete Euro 6 upgrade with 10 ADL buses

Nottingham City Transport (NCT) has completed its plan to upgrade to a fully Euro 6 fleet in accordance with Nottingham City Council’s clean air plan with the purchase of 10 Enviro200 buses from bus manufacturer Alexander Dennis Ltd (ADL).

The new single deck vehicles began service this week on the busy urban Bridgford Bus routes from West Bridgford into Nottingham city centre. The buses feature on-board Wi-Fi, USB chargers, comfortable seating and double passenger information screens, which NCT are currently trialling.

NCT will operate a fully Euro 6 fleet from January 2020, completing a programme of upgrading that began in May 2017. The new buses also reduce the average age of the fleet from six years to four and a half years, which brings with it the benefit of reliability, easier maintenance, increased uptime and higher passenger satisfaction. 

NCT has a long-standing relationship with ADL, having exclusively bought ADL products for the past six years. NCT’s managing director, Mark Fowles, said: “We chose the Enviro200s because they best met our requirements in terms of specification and they came in at the right price point. The support we receive from ADL as a long-term partner is brilliant.”
