Transport Designed’s Review of 2016 – October

See the world by Boa Vista

National Express Boa Vista

National Express placed six Scania-powered Caetano Boa Vista double deckers into its fleet in October.

Reversing its own ban on double decker coaches following an accident caused by a speeding driver in 2007, five of the vehicles were placed into service between London Victoria and Luton Airport, with a sixth going to Edwards Coaches for use between London and South Wales.

Based on the 12 that Caetano built for Translink in Northern Ireland, the National Express coaches are a few inches taller to allow more headroom upstairs. They’re powered by the same Scania K410 tri-axle Euro 6 chassis, and come equipped with USB power at every seat.
