We’re excited to tell you about our latest new bus order.

We have placed an order for 42 new Euro VI vehicles from Alexander Dennis Ltd, each of which will be built on Volvo chassis.

Commenting on the order, Richard Hall, Managing Director, Lothian said:

We are pleased to announce our order and partnership with Alexander Dennis and Volvo for the production of 42 Euro 6 vehicles for our city bus fleet. These vehicles will enhance our current fleet in line with our investment and BUS2020 strategy and ensure that we continue to play our part to improve air quality across the city and Scotland whilst meeting our customers’ expectations. We look forward to releasing further information on these vehicles at a later date.
