Launch of new hybrid buses on 73 route

I was pleased to attend today’s launch by Stagecoach of its new hybrid buses that from today serve the 73 service that runs through the West End.

 
The 18 new vehicles feature distinctive branding encouraging the public to ‘Go Green’ by trying the new hybrid buses which will also feature free wi-fi access onboard.
 
The 18 electric powered hybrid double deck buses marks an investment of around £5.3m by Stagecoach and as well as being attractive new vehicles, they have a positive impact on the environment as well.
 
Here’s a couple of photographs from the launch :
