Alexander Dennis Ltd. (ADL) is providing 92 new buses to Go-Ahead Group subsidiary Go Cornwall Bus for a new tendered bus network. Forty-four of the new buses were delivered against exceptionally short lead times for the start of operations.

Go Cornwall Bus commenced services on the Transport for Cornwall network on Sunday March 29, less than three months after it was announced by Cornwall County Council as the new operator of all its tendered bus services. Faced with a short mobilization period and a substantially increased vehicle requirement, the operator ordered 92 new buses from ADL.

ADL delivered 44 new Enviro200 single deck buses in time for the start of services, which initially operate to a reduced timetable for essential workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

A further 48 buses, including 17 Enviro400 double-deckers, will follow in coming months. These were initially expected by June, but their completion may be delayed by the temporary suspension of production at ADL’s British manufacturing sites in response to government advice on social distancing.
