Reading Trial a Citaro


The next in a series of single deck demonstrators to visit Reading is Mercedes-Benz Citaro BU53 AYA. It arrived on the 26th, and is expected to depart on the 4th June. They are unable to temporarily fit the bus with a cash vault, so it will only see service on the Loddon Bridge Park and Ride service and the Thames Valley Park Shuttle. The ticket machine is fitted in an unusual location, on a plate attached to the cab door rather than the front dash. This means that the machine rotates with the cab door when it is opened and closed. The tickets issued on the bus were showing fleet number 9.
