Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

A Mercedes-Benz Sprinter / Traveliner TL9 numbered 357 was acquired from Ventura Coach Sales (dealer) on 28th December 2015 to reduce the cost of staff movements during the evenings, where buses would be used to ferry staff between the depot and the Town Centre. It is an 8 seater and was previously owned by Tellings Golden Millar and used on Airport shuttles at Heathrow. Initially it was a non-PSV, but was reclassified in August 2017 to allow wider use. It is seen below on 3 July 2016:

In July 2017 a Mercedes Benz City45 BG63 VVA was acquired to cover Greenwave route 63 pending activation of Greenwave branded Optare Solo 182 from 8th September to replace Enviro 200 133 that had been in use since the route started in March 2017. It was given fleet number 381. It was then repainted into a green based Buzz livery as the interim vehicle for route 42 which started on 2nd October 2017.

A brand new Mercedes Sprinter / Mellor Strata was acquired on 13th December 2017, registered LO67 CFK and numbered 382, arriving in Buzz livery and entering service on 18th. From then 381 acted as a spare vehicle for the route, and a regular on the 63 again from August 2018 when 182 was repurposed for the Henley Town service.

A fourth vehicle was acquired in January 2018 in the form of Mercedes Sprinter 380 BU64 MWM in plain white. It was originally to be numbered 383 but was changed prior to entering service.
