Mistral Bus & Coach Plc supply Bakerbus with seven Wrightbus Streetlites
bakerbus, in its next stage of development, started a brand new commercial service linking Stoke-on-Trent city centre, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Keele University and Silverdale. This was in response to an identified gap in the service network in the Local Sustainable Transport Fund (LSTF) bid for North Staffordshire.
The direct service from Hanley to Keele was initially timetabled for a 30 minute frequency but, since January, this has been enhanced to 15 minutes.
The vehicles chosen for this service are 7 new Wrightbus Streetlite, wheel forward, 33 seaters which are Euro 5 compliant. The vehicles have been painted in bakerbus distinctive yellow and blue livery and also fitted with WiFi which is now becoming a standard feature for Bakers new bus acquisitions.
Philip Baker, Managing Director of bakerbus, said “Having considered various options, we needed a quality vehicle to reflect the quality service we wished to deliver on this route. Having had experience of new Wrightbus double deck Hybrids 12 months ago, we were impressed with the Wrightbus quality and decided on their complete own product, the Streetlite. Customer and driver reaction has been very favourable from the outset. Mistral have proved to be a very flexible partner in this venture and cements a relationship of almost 10 years.”
