With continuing its investment in new transport and cleaner technology Salisbury Reds in the UK is introducing five brand new buses with Euro 6 compliant engines to services in-and-around the city.
The new British-built Solo buses – manufactured by Optare – will operate across the city’s network from September 2019.
Each will feature lighter floor colours, helping to make the vehicles dementia friendly.
Managing director, Andrew Wickham, said: “Many of those with the disease are uneasy about crossing darker floors – fearing them to be like ‘black holes’,” added Andrew. “We want to make all our new buses more accessible for all – and this is just one aspect of that.”
He added: “These new buses – which will sport the striking new Salisbury Reds livery – are set to deliver exceptional performance, as well as offering environmental benefits including lower emissions – thanks to their Euro 6 engines.”
