OmniDekkas Arrive


The first of Reading's 17 new Scania OmniDekkas arrived in Reading on the 11th, and has started to make appearances on type training and route testing duties across the town. This evening at around 1830 it made what may have been its first journey carrying members of the public, on a private hire carrying a group of people from the Oracle to a production somewhere.

801 is registered YN54 AEP, and is seen outside the Oracle this evening. It wears the new generic Reading Buses livery that is to be applied to buses without specific route branding.

See the new Scania OmniDekka page for more details.
