METROBUS GOES FOR SCANIA BIOGAS
Bristol Community Transport has bought a fleet of 21 Scania biogas buses for its m1 Metrobus route.
Operated by First West, Metrobus is a new rapid public transport system for the West of England region, connecting south Bristol, the city centre and the University of the West of England campus.
The Scania buses feature wi-fi and USB charging points. Passengers buy tickets before boarding and new iPoint ticket machines at every stop ensure stopping times are minimised.
Bristol Community Transport is Bristol’s largest transport operator and a part of the transport social enterprise HCT Group, which operates contracted routes in London, Jersey, Guernsey and Leeds.
As a social enterprise, it reinvests profits from the commercial operations into furthering transport services for the communities that they serve.
