More 'Fuel Efficient' Buses For Weymouth Routes


7:20am 25th March 2014

Some of the world's most fuel efficient buses are coming to Weymouth.

'First' are spending £ 2.7 million on 9 new Wright Streetlife Max Micro-hybrids, to coincide with the start of their summer timetable.

Four of them will start running in April on Service 1  between Weymouth and Portland.

Another five will start operating on the route in September.

At the end of May,  6 new Optare Solo buses will be running on Service 4 between Weymouth and Preston where the evening service is being re-introduced for the summer.

They'll also be used on Service 8, where evening services are also running for the summer but will divert via Westham to replace Service 3.

All the new vehicles will come equipped with modern features such as free wi-fi and leather seats.
