BYD ADL delivers electric to Stagecoach

The BYD ADL partnership has taken a “significant step forward” with the delivery of nine 10.8m pure-electric buses, along with charging equipment to Stagecoach South for use on Guildford’s park-and-ride services.

The buses for Guildford are to the BYD ADL provincial spec, recently previewed at Euro Bus Expo. It features a single door and 36 seats, “delivering outstanding comfort and appeal for passengers,” BYD says.

They will connect three car parks and a leisure centre with the town centre, operating six days a week, with service frequencies of between 10-15 minutes.

Arthur Whiteside, ADL MD for UK Sales, says: “We are delighted to support Stagecoach South and Surrey County Council in their introduction of clean, zero-emission buses.

“With passenger-centric interiors and excellent on-board amenities, they will further enhance the attractiveness of Guildford as a destination and place of employment in the regional economy.”

These are the first buses supplied by the partnership to Stagecoach Group.
