Villager Community Bus/Bluebird Orion

Rural West Oxfordshire and the Gloucestershire Cotswolds are now home to a 16-seat Orion, delivered to Villager Community Bus by Bluebird (01723 860800). .

Villager Community Bus has a fleet of six 16-seater minibuses, which operate on 13 routes serving 65 communities. Keith Gowing, Chairman, says: “Easy boarding and alighting means our services are more likely to keep to schedule, for the benefit of all. The Orion is the perfect vehicle for this.

“We achieve excellent fuel consumption with our Orion. It does 24mpg compared to less than 20mpg from older vehicles.”
