first_imgKinchbus is introducing three new Mercedes-Benz Citaro buses to make its skylink fleet the cleanest it has ever been, with all 11 vehicles at Euro 6.The £525,000 additions mean the fleet on skylink Derby – linking Derby, Loughborough and Leicester to East Midlands Airport – will be all Citaro.Kinchbus cleaner skylink: (l-r) Kinchbus driving instructor Amy Newbold, general manager Alex Kerr and team leader Mark FoulstonThe buses havemore creature comforts than the vehicles leaving the fleet. There will be fee wi-fi and USB ports, plus AV next-stop announcements.Kinchbus GM Alex Kerr says: “Eight Mercedes-Benz Citaros were launched on the route in 2014, but due to demand we increased the frequency and had to use three buses that didn’t have the same green credentials.”The 24/7 route runs up to every 20 minutes and enables people to travel to thousands of existing and new jobs at and near the airport.“This investment is a sign of our commitment to cleaner buses giving existing customers a great journey experience and also tempting car drivers to make the cleaner switch. These new buses are the cleanest diesel money can buy.”The skylink fleet will achieve the Euro 6 threshold being established for buses in cities including Derby and Leicester as they move towards creating Clean Air Zones.Alex said: “Kinchbus is a locally owned independent company, meaning every decision we make is made by those with an interest in the well-being of the local community and the efficiency of the local transport system. We are doing what we can to improve the air we breathe in the communities we serve.”last_img read more
