Family event marks £1.4m ADL Enviro300 fleet boost

To launch 10 new ADL Enviro300 41-seater buses for its Letham and Tulloch routes 1/2 in Perth, Stagecoach hosted a family event to celebrate the 1.4m investment.

They follow five similar vehicles that joined the Perth fleet in May for the city’s route 9.

Each bus has fresh, route-specific branding and free Wi-Fi. The routes are 10-minute frequency.

The launch event at McDiarmid Park showcased the new buses and included a range of kids entertainment, free refreshments and giveaways.

Stagecoach East Scotland MD Andrew Jarvis said: “We’d like to introduce these new buses to the community, and celebrate the investment, so we held this family event to encourage people to come down and experience the new vehicles, learn more about the buses and the services we operate, but most importantly have some fun, completely free on one of the last days of the school holidays.”

McDiarmid Park is on route 1/2, and visitors to the event with a valid bus ticket were upgraded free to a weekly Megarider.
