From Sunday, all of the buses on the No 10 route will be replaced with brand new diesel-electric hybrids. The company says they chose the No 10 route as it passes through some of the worst air-polluted areas of the city.
They boast that the buses will feature automatic announcements and free WiFi. If the auto announcements are anything like the train ones, I suspect there may be many complaints before they're turned off! They always sound good in a board meeting, but in practice they drive passengers to distraction - particularly if the stops are close together like they are in Edinburgh.
What the buses actually look like seems to be held under lock and key for the moment. I haven't seen an Evening News for a couple of days so I don't know if they've sneaked a picture, but Lothian Buses themselves certainly aren't giving the game away online! I suspect they're these ones from Alexander Dennis's website.
