Reliance Purchase ADL200 MMC

Reliance Motor Services are excited to announce the purchase of a new ADL Enviro 200MMC. The bus is expected to join the fleet in September 2018 after an extensive trail period with a number of ADL vehicles. Gary Newby, partner at Reliance, says “The ADL vehicle was the best fit for us at this time, the team went above and beyond with demonstration buses and sales support to make sure we were happy with the vehicle we are purchasing. We are delighted to be purchasing a bus that is made here in Yorkshire and we will be adding some branding to the bus to reflect this.”

Richard Matthews, ADL Retail Sales Director, comments: “We are pleased to have been able to support Reliance Motor Services recently by making available some of our demonstrator buses for evaluation and to cover a vehicle requirement that arose from this quality independent operator’s expansion of business. This order confirms our Enviro200’s class-leading attributes and we are particularly delighted to have been given this vote of confidence from a new customer whose fleet has until now consisted exclusively of a competing marque.”
