Thamesdown Transport to get new buses under Go Ahead ownership
Go Ahead Group reports that it is investing in its newly-acquired Thamesdown Transport operation with the addition of 13 new single-deck buses.
“Since taking the reigns at Thamesdown Transport, we’ve been listening to those who use our services here, and our customers have been very clear about the enhancements they would like to see,” says Andrew Wickham, managing director, Thamesdown Transport.
“We have already begun to make improvements - including scrapping the previous exact change policy. And now we’re making a significant investment to introduce 13 brand new buses.
“The new buses will provide comfort and reliability. And I am delighted that these new vehicles will include additional improvements to benefit those travelling with us here.”
The new buses will feature front and rear destination displays with white LEDs to give greater clarity, particularly after dark, as well as free wi-fi and USB charging points and a new lighter-coloured flooring to assist partially sighted customers.
“We make it our business to listen to the views of those using our buses - and will make efforts to enhance our services wherever we can over the coming months and years,” adds Wickham.
