Warrington’s Own Buses has recently boosted fleet capacity with the introduction of five additional buses. These include four Volvo B7TLs double deckers and a DAF DB250 double decker bus.
Following last month’s announcement that Fairbrothers Coaches would cease their stage-carriage operations, Warrington’s Own Buses has acquired additional vehicles to operate the independent operator’s former services.
It is understood the one commercial service Warrington’s Own Buses has inherited, the 1C to Westy, is to be operated on a short-term basis only.
Four of the additional vehicles are Volvo B7TLs with Wrightbus Eclipse Gemini bodywork. Acquired from Tower Transit, they were allocated to Westbourne Park depot prior to moving to their new home in Warrington.
The fifth vehicle is a TransBus ALX400 bodied DAF DB250LF which was acquired from Fairbrothers, meaning it will remain in the town it has been based in for the past three years.
All of the acquired vehicles have been fitted with roller blind destination apparatus and will be used on school services only.
For those interested, the details of the additional vehicles are as follows: LJ03 MWL (150), LK04 HYY (187), LK04 HXA (197), LK04 HXU (198) and LK04 HXV (199).
