Thamesdown Transport’s early Christmas gift to Swindon has arrived – brand new buses with on-board WiFi, contactless ticket payment and USB charging. The single-decker buses are eco-friendly and can carry up to 35 passengers. Their innovative seating provide a “comfortable space for friends and family to travel together.”
Andrew Wickham, Thamesdown Transport's managing director, said: “We are tremendously proud of these new vehicles - not only are they better for the environment, equipped with low emissions Euro 6 engines, but they’re also the first in the region to offer a special ‘social seating’ layout.”
“This inventive horse-shoe arrangement means a lounge-type environment for our customers.
“We’re also providing individual USB points at all 35 passenger seats, so those on-board can charge their smartphones and handheld devices. And new on-board technology also includes free wi-fi and contactless ticket payment facilities.”
“Our customers here were very clear about the enhancements they wanted to see on buses in and around Swindon, and we have listened to them.
“We have invested more than £2m in these new buses for our number 5 route - and we’re looking forward to seeing them out and about, transporting those who use our services whilst living in or visiting Swindon.”
