New Vehicle for Bus Route 25 as Customer Growth Spikes Demand

 

One of Bedford borough’s rural bus services; the number 25 route, is set to receive a brand new bus as customer numbers have grown. The brand new Dennis Enviro, which includes colour-coordinated leather seating, three-point seat belts and CCTV cameras, is both low on emissions and provides economical fuel consumption. 

 

The £124,000 investment has been made by Grant Palmer to ensure increased passenger demand is being catered for.

 

The Dennis Enviro will transport passengers between Bedford and Sharnbrook, Harrold, Stevington, Oakley and Clapham from Wednesday 12th August, making its debut at 6:27am.

 

Grant Palmer, owner and Managing Director of the Bedfordshire-based bus company said “The new bus is being brought in to show residents of the rural service that they are just as important to us as bus users travelling across Bedford town. The new bus, which is the best in its class, will ensure passengers reach their destination comfortably, safely and in style!”


Mayor or Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson said: “We are delighted to help introduce the new bus on Route 25, alongside Grant Palmer, in response to the increased demand for this key rural service. This investment has come at a great time and will enable comfortable, safe and reliable transport to be provided for users all along the route between Sharnbrook and Bedford.”
