First Versas for Arriva
Two are in service with Arriva Shires and Essex and one with Arriva Midlands. The latter is evaluating its Versa on an hourly service that operates six days a week between Shrewsbury and Bridgnorth. Arriva’s Keith Myatt says: “Drivers find it a pleasant vehicle to drive and have commented particularly on its excellent manoeuvrability. At 38 seats it has a good passenger capacity and it meets the county council’s requirement for an easy access, low floor bus.”
The Versas also include a newly-designed assault screen, Hanover LED destination equipment and six-camera CCTV system.
