Ten Versas for Shrewsbury Park & Ride

Arriva will use ten new Optare Versa midibuses worth some £1.5m to service a new contract in Shrewsbury.  The new buses will work between the city and its three Park & Ride sites.  Arriva Midlands and Shropshire Council specified Versa after trials involving several vehicles.  The criteria included fuel use, emissions and passenger capacity.  The Versa's modern styling also helped it win the deal, as it should prove appealing to passengers.  The first of the 11-metre Mercedes-Benz powered Versas will be delivered soon.  Each has CCTV, full colour Hanover destination boards, a unique livery and 38 Esteban high back seats with headrests.
