Euro Bus Expo 2016 Review

18 expert speakers, 120 vehicles, 291 exhibitors, nearly 9,500 attendees, and multi-million pound orders!

Senior executives from all the UK and Ireland’s major bus and coach operators packed the aisles to discover what’s new and next in the industry.

Many of the innovations on show across the 25,000 sqm of exhibition space – from the latest ‘must have’ vehicles, accessories and equipment to cutting-edge technology, training and services – will define passenger transport design, developments, and solutions for years to come.

This year’s visitors were the first to see a host of new vehicles – including Volvo Bus’ new B5LHC Double Deck Electric Hybrid (with Opportunity Charging), the Scania Irizar i8, Alexander Dennis’ Enviro400CBG gas double decker, Optare’s Metrodecker EV prototype, the Yutong E12 full electric connected bus (in partnership with Arriva and 21st Century), VDL Bus & Coach’s first right-hand drive Futura FDD2 double-decker coach, Wrightbus’ Gemini 3, the Nu-Track Stellar, and the Super Low Floor Metro LF from EVM.

There were also new launches from Cummins Engine Co, BMAC, Passenger Lift Services, Bowmonk Tapley, Teknoware Oy, Vision Techniques, Omnibus, Totalkare HDWS, Pride & Joy Clothing, Freeway Fleet Systems, Ticketer, DILAX Systems UK, JOSAM (a division of Car-O-Liner group), TruTac, Faiveley Transport, Maha UK, AID Fuel Oils Group, TD Tyres, RF Tracking, and Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership, to name but a few.

The Master Class Theatre addressed some of the biggest challenges facing the bus and coach sector, including the Bus Services Bill, Brexit and devolution. This year the Master Class Theatre was hosted by broadcaster and journalist Dave Guest, and visitors heard from some of the industry’s prime players. Details of the full programme can be found here.
