Eco buses to be added to fleet

Have your say

NINETEEN new environmental hybrid buses are to be added to Stagecoach’s fleet in South Yorkshire.

The new buses take the total number of vehicles in the firm’s ‘eco fleet’ to 40 since 2011.

The buses will be launched officially next month at an event at Sheffield City Hall, when invited guests will be able to take a mini tour of one of the new vehicles which will be parked in Barker’s Pool.

Part of the newly-agreed Sheffield Bus Partnership is for travel companies to lessen the impact on the environment by providing a simpler, co-ordinated network of services with improved value for money.
