She's Electric!

No, this isn't a post about the Oasis concert in Slane next year... its the new Wrights Hybrid Pulsar Gemini which has just arrived in Summerhill.

The bus, which is to be classified, WH1 will carry the registration of 08D69001. It's fitted with a Ford Puma diesel engine and a Lithium ion battery pack.

The bus will receive its external graphics next week, and then driver familiarisation will begin after that.

Here are some photos of the Hybrid taken in Summerhill Garage on Wednesday, 22nd October 2008. Click on the image for a larger version.
And this is how the dash looks...
A Wrights Hybrid Gemini is also in operation in London...

Hungry for information...

Tickets, check.
Wallet, check.
Passport, check.
Food, sorted!
Timetable, fantasy!
While Burger Kings ads are now visible across the Aircoach stops in the city, it seems a lack of a timetable has left us hungry for information...
