Local bus company Uno, owned by the University of Hertfordshire, is set to launch a fleet of revamped and modernised buses on Tuesday 28 November at the University’s College Lane campus.

The 4 double-decker buses have had a major make-over with USB chargers fitted at every seat, new comfy seating and superfast WIFI.

To celebrate the launch, the buses will take centre stage in an alternative Christmas light switch on and light display.

The new buses – entitled The Alban Way buses – will offer the very best in journey experience on the 601 service, which connects Welwyn Garden City, Hatfield, The University of Hertfordshire, The Business Park deHavilland, Oaklands and Borehamwood.

Jim Thorpe, Managing Director for Uno Buses, said: “We’re delighted to be launching a new modernised, refreshed fleet of buses. At Uno we understand the importance of creating a product that will provide the very best customer experience. It’s so important for our passengers to be able to stay connected on their travels, and we’re investing in technologies to make this happen.

And what better way to launch the new buses, we’re all looking forward to seeing the upgraded fleet truly light up the Campus!”
