Four new Euro 5 double deckers to join DB bus fleet
- Written by arounddb, 5 June 2017
Four brand new Euro 5 double decker buses will soon be joining the DB bus fleet, replacing the old "second hand" buses currently in use.
The new buses are expected to serve external routes from July or August this year, subject to government vehicle examination and licensing procedures.
The new additions form part of a wider, ongoing bus replacement scheme in DB, intended to ensure that the whole DB bus fleet will achieve emission standards of Euro 4 or above, and that over half of the buses in the fleet will meet Euro 5 or 6 standards by the end of 2018.
The aim of the scheme is to improve the air quality in DB and bring about a greener and cleaner environment.
