Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL) supplied an Enviro200 to the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) for a six-month revenue trial.
The 30-foot midibus will run on MARTA’s circulator and connector routes and is expected to be in service for over 20 hours per day, seven days a week. ADL and MARTA collaborated closely in the preparation of this joint trial and the manufacturer built the Enviro200 to the agency’s specification to enable its performance to be fully verified.
While there are a handful of 30-ft. buses in MARTA’s current fleet, it mainly consists of more than 600 40 ft. heavy-duty transit buses, and the agency needs a future fleet of smaller buses.
During the six-month trial, MARTA will benefit from comprehensive manufacturer support through the ADL aftermarket organization, as well as the wider NFI Group. NFI acquired ADL in May 2019 to form a global independent bus and coach manufacturer that supports 105,000 vehicles and leads the North American transit bus market.
