Bus Travel NZ has taken de­liv­ery of three Wrightbus StreetLite sin­gledeck ve­hi­cles.

The ve­hi­cles are the 11.5m ‘door for­ward’ vari­ant in­clud­ing two- and three-tier in­de­pen­dent lug­gage racks with seat­ing for 39 pas­sen­gers.

All fea­ture Daim­ler Euro 6 en­gines with Voith D824.6E gear­boxes and also in­clude Wrightbus Mi­cro Hy­brid tech­nol­ogy, which max­imises fuel ef­fi­ciency and re­duces emis­sions.

Bus Travel NZ is part of the Leop­ard Coach­lines group, which spe­cialises in Auck­land air­port ser­vices and trans­fers, in ad­di­tion to New Zealand-wide coach tour­ing.

The three new StreetLites will be de­ployed from Bus Travel NZ’s Manukau de­pot at Auck­land In­ter­na­tional Air­port and will be part of a 24-hour, seven-day-aweek ser­vice for air­port cus­tomers and em­ploy­ees.

Bus Travel NZ is the first Kiwi cus­tomer for Wrightbus, which is rep­re­sented in New Zealand and Aus­tralia by Patico Au­to­mo­tive.

Man­ag­ing direc­tor Tony Fair­weather is elated that the com­pany has cho­sen Wrightbus.

“We have been demon­strat­ing this ve­hi­cle on be­half of Wrightbus in New Zealand and Aus­tralia for al­most 12 months and the re­ac­tion from op­er­a­tors and driv­ers has been very en­cour­ag­ing,” he says.

“I am con­fi­dent that we can build on this suc­cess and look for­ward to sup­ply­ing more of th­ese ex­cel­lent ve­hi­cles through­out New Zealand and Aus­tralia in com­ing years.”

Wrightbus in­ter­na­tional head of busi­ness de­vel­op­ment Mark Mitchell says the com­pany is ex­tremely proud to make its first ve­hi­cle de­liv­er­ies into New Zealand

“We are de­lighted that the first ve­hi­cles that most peo­ple will see when ar­riv­ing into the coun­try through Auck­land Air­port will be the Wrightbus StreetLite,” he says.

“We are con­fi­dent that this is an ex­cit­ing new chap­ter in Wrightbus In­ter­na­tional’s de­vel­op­ment and the start of a long re­la­tion­ship with New Zealand.”
