Lloyds Coaches, a family business that in 18 years has grown from a fledgling company to one of the leading providers of quality bus and coach services in Wales, has added a further two Enviro200 single decks from Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL) to its fleet of over 60 vehicles.
The latest additions are both high specification 10.8m, 41-seat models powered by Cummins engines and Allison 2100 transmissions. They have safety-belted leather seats with under-seat lighting, USB charging points, and sophisticated visual and audio destination systems.
Both buses have gone straight into service on the high profile T12 route that operates between Machynlleth, in Mid Wales, where the company is based, to Newtown, Welshpool, Oswestry and Wrexham.
The route forms part of TrawsCymruConnect, a flagship initiative that links key towns and cities spanning a 90-mile stretch across Mid and North Wales.
The latest Enviro200s join a series of 80-seat Enviro400 double decks which Lloyds Coaches run on their prestigious X28 Coastliner route. Together, both the Enviro200 single and Enviro400 double deck buses are a demonstration of the company’s commitment to the introduction of low emission, easy access buses.
Wyn Lloyd, Managing Director and founder of the business, commented: “We have come a long way in 18 years and remain committed to providing quality, best-in-class services. Our investment strategy will therefore remain focused on products and technology that provide stylish, passenger-friendly vehicles, while also reducing emissions and enhancing the environment. Our new Enviro200s do just that.”
