Alexander Dennis has continued its success in the Far East by securing an order for a further 72 Enviro500 double-deckers from KMB, Hong Kong’s largest operator.
The deal calls for 46 buses to a length of 12.8m that will carry 144 passengers, including 92 seated and two wheelchair users. They will be complemented by 26 11.3m examples that will carry a maximum of 124 passengers, with 78 seated and one wheelchair user space. Each will have a steered tag axle to assist manoeuvrability.
Says ADL President and Managing Director Paul Davies: “We are delighted that we continue to meet KMB’s expectations as it once again places its confidence in Alexander Dennis with this latest order for 72 double-deck buses.
“We are honoured to contribute to Hong Kong’s world class transport system, and we look forward to further supporting KMB’s commitment to innovation and first-class customer service.”
KMB operates over 400 routes with a fleet of around 4,000 buses. Of those, more than 2,500 are Enviro500 models supplied to KMB by ADL since 2012, including 56 ordered earlier in 2021.
