To promote the new services, municipal operator Warrington’s Own Buses has repainted two of their Wrightbus Cadet bodied VDL SB120 midibuses in a smart two-tone blue and black livery. A third is due to be repainted, albeit in a different livery, in the near future.
Buses 60 (PCZ 979, DK56 MLX) and 62 (PLZ 373, DK56 MLN) are the two examples which have been repainted, with bus 61 (PLZ 757, DK56 MLL) not yet in its new livery.
On board the refurbished Wrightbus Cadets, passengers can now enjoy a range of new features including complimentary WiFi and USB charging points for mobile phones and tablets, with these features first introduced to the company’s vehicles with the introduction of their Alexander Dennis Enviro200 midibuses earlier this year.
