New glass-roofed bus has vroom with a view
7:00am Wednesday 2nd July 2014 in News
Glass roofs are the main feature of a new Oxford Tube £10m fleet of buses.
The Oxford to London bus has bought 26 of the new double-decker vehicles, which will also feature 4G wireless internet, and will eventually replace all of its fleet.
They will enter service on July 16, the company confirmed.
The coaches will also use Euro 6 engines, making them more environmentally friendly, running on a mix of biofuel and diesel.
Managing director Martin Sutton said: “Glass roofs and extra leg room will help provide a unique travelling experience.
“And the coaches are now one of the greenest ways to travel between Oxford and London”.
