Passengers shape bus

Bus users have helped to shape the eye-catching design of a new Trent Barton bus.

The new Tempo SR buses have seating for 41 passengers and space for a further 44 standing as well as double-glazed windows and six-camera CCTV system.

Jeff Counsell, managing director of Trent Barton, said: “We have enjoyed a long relationship with Optare, one of the world’s leading bus manufacturers. They asked for our input into the development of the latest addition to their range.

“Based on feedback from our customers we suggested a number of features that have been incorporated into the final design of the new model.”

The buses operate on the rainbow 4 route.
