Plymouth Citybus is to be the first member of Go-Ahead Group to introduce E‑Leather into their fleet with the acquisition of eight Enviro 400 double decker buses.
Red and grey E‑Leather was chosen to compliment the company’s corporate branding and the colour scheme of the vehicle exteriors, emphasising Plymouth Citybus’s commitment to what they see as a brighter, cleaner and fresher interior, providing passengers with the best possible environment during their journey.
On taking delivery of the vehicles from Alexander Dennis, Engineering Director Mark Horide commented,
“We set out to make the vehicle interior both spacious and attractive to our passengers. Consideration was made to the colour combinations of the seat design along with the wall panels, floors and ceilings and we worked closely with ADL, Esteban and E‑Leather to achieve the desired effect. By removing a row of seats in the upper saloon we have achieved more legroom that we believe will achieve a more comfortable ride.”
The vehicles will enter service in September as part of an expanded operation throughout the South West.
