Seven Optare Solos for Arriva Netherlands

Published to the CV Show website on

Optare has won a second big export order; seven Solos for Arriva Netherlands, the country's third largest bus operator.  The buses start work in December on rural services in the north of the country.  Arriva's UK arm has already bought 170 Solos for its fleet and got many more from fleet acquisitions.  The firm also runs Optare's Versa and Tempo models.  "Solo has proved the best midibus on the market with well over 4,000 now in service," said Glenn Saint, commercial director for the firm.  He says it is a "well proven" product, offering "outstanding passenger accessibility and low operating costs."
