Wrights streetlite

20974-80/2 

To operate a number of contracted bus services in the Bristol area seven short wheel base Streetlites were acquired one was a 60 plate and the other six were 11 plate vehicles. These 37 seat vehicles are built to the variant with the entrance door behind the front driving wheels. In June 2015 two of the 7 vehicles were transferred to Redditch garage and initially entered service in the red and silver livery they had operated in Bristol. Both vehicles were soon painted into the standard Diamond blue livery.  One of the vehicles is needed to operate a Warwickshire County Council contract in Stratford upon Avon with the second vehicle being used on Redditch town services. When more contracted routes were gained in the Birmingham area more of the Streetlines were added to the fleet by transferring more of the Bristol vehicles to the West Midlands. Additionally another 60 plate vehicle joined the fleet which had started life with Isle of Man Transport.

In addition to the 17 new Wrights Streetlites that were acquired in February 2019 a further six were acquired from dealer stock for the west Midlands operation (with other for the North West operation). These vehicles built to a shorter length than the other new 17 vehicles. As the vehicles had been built as dealer stock the vehicles have standard seating rather than the high back leather seats  of the other recent vehicles. During February 2019 six vehicles were specifically acquired for use on the service 226 from Dudley to Merry Hill Shopping Centre. All six soon acquired branding for the route. During March 2019 a seventh vehicle arrive. Initially it entered service is all over white but was soon too painted in the latest fleet livery.

To introduce further new vehicles to the Redditch operation Diamond acquired a further eight brand new Wrights Streetlites in February 2016. These vehicles were introduced into service from February 2015 and were initially deployed on the routes 57 and 58. Delivery of the vehicles was delayed following a decision to include more space for buggies as well as the required single wheelchair space. The vehicles were delivered to Redditch from the Wrights factory in Ireland via the ferry at Heysham in all over blue with the logos and branding being added before the vehicles entered service.  In April 2016 a further four vehicles were added to the fleet and were Tividale in April 2016. However to meet the requirement of the Signature contract in Solihull these vehicles were soon moved to Redditch to operate routes in Solihull.
