Stagecoach announces £70million order
Les Warneford, managing director of Stagecoach UK Bus, says: “This planned multi-million-pound investment will bring significant benefits to passengers and the environment in local communities where we provide bus services.
“We are committed to reinvesting our profits to boost our quality of service to passengers, even in the current economic downturn. These buses have some of the cleanest engines in Europe and this investment will support our drive to reduce the carbon footprint of our business.”
Bus passenger numbers on Stagecoach services grew by around 4 per cent last year, driven by continued fleet investment, innovative marketing campaigns, partnerships with local authorities, attractive fares and additional travel under concessionary fares schemes.
