Contract for Falkirk
Alexander Dennis secures 180-bus order from Hong Kong
KMB is a long-standing customer of Alexander Dennis
Bus builder Alexander Dennis, now a subsidiary of US-based NFI Group, has secured an order from Hong Kong’s largest operator The Kowloon Motor Bus Company for 180 low-emission double deckers.
All of the new vehicles are scheduled to be delivered in the first half of 2020.
The order continues a long-standing relationship with KMB which has now ordered over 2,200 Enviro500 buses from the Falkirk-based company since the current generation model was launched in 2012.
KMB is the largest franchised bus operator in Hong Kong, serving around 2.8 million passenger trips each day with a fleet of around 4,000 buses operating on more than 400 routes.
Paul Davies, managing director Asia Pacific for Alexander Dennis, said: “We are delighted that to deliver its world class passenger service, KMB continues to place its confidence in Alexander Dennis vehicles and support with this latest order for 180 double deck buses.
“Our Enviro500 will excel in challenging topography and climate on some of the most arduous duty cycles in the world.”
