Reading Buses is one of the first bus companies in the UK to buy a fleet of 34 compressed natural gas buses.
In a joint announcement, Reading Buses and Barclays say the new environmentally friendly fleet of single deck buses will provide enhanced levels of service to meet the needs of increasing passenger numbers.
Tony Pettitt, Director of Resources at Reading Buses, said, “Barclays has provided asset financing for the second batch of fourteen buses which has made the deal possible.
“They are strongly supporting our increased development in vehicle fleet, products and services following the start of our partnership with them a year ago.
“As a result of their backing we can improve the quality – and quantity – of the services we are able to provide across our network.”
