First West of England September 2017
The first of the 24 New Scania/Enviro,s have turned up but wont be on the road for the start date as they are delays to the rest of the batch. Several are in at Hengrove and 1 has arrived in Lawrence Hill 36817 these are all in the same livery as spare streetdeck 35150 and will be used on the U1 from Hengrove and UWE from Lawrence Hill they are also 4 inches lower then previous Envir,s at 13*10
The next batch are grey and orange and will be for Metrobus route M2 when it starts. 1 is going to Hengrove for guide wheels to be fitted and driver training the rest will go to Bath as a stop gap to be used on UNI routes there once Metrobus starts they will transfer to Bristol.
The Batch for U1 will be used until new stock in a special livery arrives early next year.
The story so far.
Metrobus liveried 36802 YT67XJV has arrived at Hengrove complete with guide wheels fitted so this will probably be used for training on the guided bus bits of the first Metro route.
36810 new for the U1.
Bi Bus 39401 is now in servie
it certainly stands out in this livery.
To cover for late deliveries of the new Scania,s 3 ex London Metroline B7/Plaxton Presidents have arrived at Lawrence Hill on loan LR52BMV,LR52BNJ,LR52BNZ these should see use on UWE Express route.
ex London President LR52BNZ.
