Optare Solo


Apart from the purchase of the Optare Solo SR vehicles for the Signature services in Solihull Rotala has never purchased any new Optare Solo vehicles. In recent years a number of vehicles have been added to the fleet in a variety of vehicle lengths and seating capacities. Many of the vehicles used to operate from their Long Acre depot on a mixture of commercial and tendered services. With the purchase of the Redditch and Kidderminster garages in March 2013 a number of the vehicles were redeployed into those garages. However their use has not been without problems because their capacity provides a poor substitute for the larger vehicles First used to operate on these routes.
