MAN Wrightbus Meridian launched
The first vehicle is a 44-seat single-door version with a two-door version to TfL specification to follow before the end of the year and there will also be a full low-floor version available for airport-style operation.
“The name of Wrightbus is synonymous with quality and I am delighted that we are able to enter into this partnership,” says Neoman Bus UK managing director Vince Welsh. “With a full low floor concept, it will open markets in which we have never been before.”
Wrightbus group managing director Mark Nodder adds: “The Meridian is an important addition to the Wrightbus range, bringing Wrightbus quality, passenger appeal, operational durability and in-service support to the full-sized low-floor single-deck segment. I firmly believe that it will prove to be a very flexible vehicle, meeting the needs of a number of operators both on scheduled urban routes as well as applications such as park-and-ride and airports.”
