Our popular H1 service – introduced on the back of customer research over 15 years ago – is set to undergo its’ fourth transformation to keep up with customer expectations, with a comprehensive makeover as we introduce five new buses packed with the latest technology.
As well as high-speed, free on-board Wi-Fi, the British-built vehicles also boast state-of-the-art information screens to ensure customers never miss their stop. They also feature leather-trimmed seats, double-glazed windows and plenty of space for shopping and buggies.
Aaron Irwin, our Team Leader for H1, commented: “These shiny new buses are real head-turners. As well as being cosy and comfortable, they boast the fastest Wi-Fi we could get, next stop audio and visual information, and areas for buggies and wheelchair users.
“As well as bringing a touch of luxury to the H1 route, and the latest in on-bus features they are also amongst the most environmentally friendly buses on the road with exceptional low fuel consumption compared to the buses they replace.”
At the preview party events in Derby and Heanor, the new shiny green buses certainly proved a hit with customers who also helped the company raise money for its chosen charity for 2014, Help for Heroes.
Although the new fleet is the result of significant investment by trentbarton, customers will not see any hike in prices to use the new buses, and there are some great deals available, including as half-price evening and Sunday adult fares.
