Enviro 400 City for Blackpool

Blackpool Transport has placed the first provisional order for Alexander Dennis Enviro 400 City model. The double decker was launched recently as ADL's equivalent of the New Bus for London and features a glass panelled staircase. Blackpool's order is for service 9 and is understood to be for ten buses. The interior specification follows that of the Palladium Citaros purchased last year for service 5 with leather seats (for 72) and USB chargers. Euro 6 diesel engines are specified. 

The Enviros will be the first new double deckers for ten years - the longest such gap the fleet has experienced, beating the 9 year gap between the last PD3s and first Atlanteans
