Scotland’s Stagecoach orders 39 ADL-BYD buses

Alexander Dennis and BYD UK have delivered 39 more electric buses to Stagecoach in Scotland. These are 24 Enviro200EV solo buses and 15 Enviro400EV double-deckers.

The 39 new electric buses will be used in several Scottish cities, broken down as follows: 13 electric buses will hit the road in Perth, 11 in Dunfermline and a total of 15 in Aberdeen and Ayrshire. Together with deliveries from previous orders, Stagecoach now operates a total fleet of 85 BYD-ADL electric buses in Scotland.

“As part of our drive to target a net zero UK bus fleet by 2035, we are delighted to deliver the UK’s first all-electric city bus networks, building further on the investment made in new zero emission buses in a number of places in the UK. These new state-of-the-art electric buses introduced across Dunfermline, Inverness and Perth will help deliver significantly reduced emissions in these cities,” said Sam Greer, Stagecoach Regional Director for Scotland.

“This latest delivery illustrates the excellent progress Stagecoach is making in implementing zero-emission electric bus fleets in key towns and cities in Scotland, with the support of ScotZEB. Through pioneering battery technology and innovation in new energy products, BYD in partnership with Alexander Dennis, is proud to be involved in helping Stagecoach transition its bus fleets to clean eMobility solutions, that are kinder to the environment, providing even more passengers in Scotland with accessible eco-friendly bus transportation,” added Frank Thorpe, Managing Director, BYD UK.

Just recently, ADL announced the expansion of its electric bus production capacities in Scotland, at its headquarters in Larbert. Stagecoach, for its part, also recently expanded its EV capacities by being the first company to launch the new electric Volvo BZL buses in the UK.
