Rotala invests in Diamond Bus

As part of a major investment of new vehicles totalling £3.5m, which runs through to early 2019, Diamond Bus’ parent, Rotala has bought 10 new Mellor Stratas, to be based at its Tividale depot, West Midlands.

They also herald a new look, with a revised livery, with a lighter paint scheme and graphics reflecting its vision of “a new brighter Diamond.”

The design of these Low Emissions Bus (LEB) Certificated smaller buses is ideal for use on urban routes, such as those around congested towns and housing estates, adds Diamond Bus.

The buses may be small, but there is no compromise on space or capacity. The Strata has a total passenger capacity of 22 people and its roomy, light and airy design means passengers can travel in comfort within its modern interior. The low floor bus has one wheelchair space and includes modern heating and LED lighting.
