RE: Alexander Dennis
Hope that ADL gets a good new owner because they're on the up and the E400MMC and E200MMC are a step in the right direction.

We’ve got some very exciting news to share...

We’ve partnered with bus manufacturer Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL) and technology company Fusion Processing to produce the UK’s first single deck autonomous bus.

Once complete, the 12m ADL Enviro200 vehicle will be completely autonomous and able to operate without a driver in an off-road environment. The technology also delivers road safety benefits when driven in manual mode.

In the short term, the bus will be used in autonomous mode only within the depot environment, to carry out movements such as parking and moving into the fuelling station and bus wash. Using self-driving vehicles within depots more widely could help improve safety, efficiency and space utilisation within the depot.

Work on the vehicle is being carried out at ADL’s site in Guildford and the bus is expected to be ready for use by the end of this year.

We’ve included a pic of an Enviro 200 vehicle, similar to that being used in the trial!

Watch this space for updates and sneaky peaks as we manage to get our hands on them!

Hearing ADL and Optare have halted production due to the coronavirus situation. 
Not sure how that impacts locally at this stage.

ADL UNVEILS VISION TO SUSTAIN AIR QUALITY IMPROVEMENTS IN UK TOWNS AND CITIES WITH 10,000 CLEAN BUSES

Notes to editors
10,000 new clean buses over 4 years would approach normal levels of investment. UK operators historically registered between 2,500 and 3,000 new buses per year, although in the last two years this fell to under 2,000 buses due to the impact of previous governments’ cuts to support and socially necessary services.

Over three quarters of UK demand for buses is met by domestic manufacturers, including ADL, keeping investment in the country.

UK bus services require specific vehicle types such as double deckers which are uncommon in other countries and therefore not generally offered by international suppliers. A healthy and vibrant domestic bus manufacturing industry is crucial to prevent a dependence on unsuitable, imported products.

The UK bus manufacturing industry has been at the forefront of bringing efficient and cost-effective low, ultra low and zero emission bus technologies to market, often ahead of their development and deployment in other countries.
