Blue Bus Innovations has become the first company in the UK or Ireland to operate a fleet of compressed natural gas-powered (CNG) minibuses, after ordering three Iveco Daily Line Hi-Matic vehicles.
The Luton-based company is taking delivery of the three 16-seater vehicles along with three 19-seater Daily Tourys minibuses, which use Euro 6 diesel engines.
Blue Bus Managing Director Tazio Puri Negri said: “We pride ourselves on being a responsible business. Whilst we strive to offer our customers the best service, we are also aware we need to minimise our impact on the environment. With emissions restrictions set to get even tougher, we will look to increase our fleet of alternative fuelled minibuses.”
Blue Bus Innovations provides seats on its shuttle coaches from pick-up and drop-off points in central London to-and-from London Luton Airport, between 7am and 11pm daily.
The CNG Buses will go into service with immediate effect.
