Slim Solo for Lake District route

Penrith-based Alba Travel has added another Optare Solo SR to its fleet for use on a new contract in the Lake District. The choice of the 2.3m-wide Slimline model reflects the narrow roads along the route of the X33 Lakeland Explorer, which connects Keswick, Ambleside and Coniston with Ravenglass on the west coast.

Michael Holmes, transport manager of the family-run firm, says: “The slightly narrower width of this Solo SR will suit these conditions better than a full-width bus. Outside of the tourist season we will be using the bus on our local services and private work in the Penrith area.

“As with our earlier Solos, we’ve again specified E-leather seats to give our passengers a bit more comfort.”
