Uno, owned by the University of Hertfordshire, launched a fleet of revamped and modernised buses on Tuesday at the University’s College Lane campus.
The four East Lancs-bodied Scania OmniDekkas have had a major make-over with USB chargers fitted at every seat, new seating and superfast WiFi. The buses, which have been part of Uno’s fleet since new, have also been mechanically refurbished. To celebrate the launch, the buses took centre stage in an alternative Christmas light switch on and light display.
The new buses – branded The Alban Way – relaunch Uno’s 601 service, which connects Welwyn Garden City, Hatfield, The University of Hertfordshire, The Business Park deHavilland, Oaklands and Borehamwood.
Jim Thorpe, managing director for Uno Buses, says: “We’re delighted to be launching a new modernised, refreshed fleet of buses. At Uno we understand the importance of creating a product that will provide the very best customer experience. It’s so important for our passengers to be able to stay connected on their travels, and we’re investing in technologies to make this happen.
