Speaking about the deal to bring more than 550 new buses to routes across Birmingham & the Black Country, the Managing Director of National Express said:
"This deal will ensure the £100m invested on improvements to our services over the coming years will not just benefit our customers, who will have great new buses, but will also give the British economy a big boost."
"The new buses will offer our customers a state-of-the-art, comfortable and environmentally friendly journey. We cannot wait to introduce these vehicles to the roads of the West Midlands later in the year."
