Inter-city role is found for York’s old ftr buses
11:21am Saturday 23rd June 2012 in News
THE fleet of ftr superbuses which was taken off the streets of York earlier this year is being redeployed to the route between Leeds and Bradford.
The controversial vehicles were introduced on York’s number 4 route between Acomb and the University in 2006, but were replaced by a fleet of double deckers following a comprehensive review of passenger growth prospects by First. A First spokesman said it was working in partnership with local authorities to establish the first phase of a rapid transit style service between Leeds and Bradford using the buses.
“First is currently refurbishing its fleet of vehicles for this service to include an interior refurbishment, including leather seating,” he said.
