Electric bus demonstation for Unibus

Electric double deck bus demonstration for Unibus

When?

Friday 28th May and Tuesday 1st June

Where?

Talbot Campus, Bus Hub

What bus is it?         

It’s an ADL/BYD E400 EV

Why are we testing it?

We have ambitions at Unibus to move to zero emission buses as soon as possible. Technology is moving forward at a fast rate and this demonstrator vehicle represents the latest offering from one of the UK’s top bus manufacturers. We will be assessing whether the vehicle has the necessary range to complete a full day’s work on our Unibus routes, as well as how they perform for both our customers and drivers.

Can people ride on the bus?

Yes, the bus will be available for two days so we can showcase the features and there will of course be time for a short trip.  Don't forget to have your face mask with you.  The bus will have the capacity to carry up to 60 people each trip.
