Going Green with a White Bus

The normally green A4 Air Decker Service buses have a white one among them for the coming weeks.

Bath Bus Company has had a white bus made available to them by Volvo that features a Euro 6 clean, green, low emission engine that is expected to use less fuel than other buses operating the Air Decker service.

The bus is being trialled for 2 weeks to determine its effectiveness, and if successful could influence future orders for Bath Bus Company & its Air Decker Service.

The Air Decker Service has become known for its distinctive green buses, so drivers operating the white bus have been asked to look carefully for passengers when approaching stops, as not everyone will expect a white bus rather than the usual green Air Deckers.
