Optare wins 13m order from Greater Manchester

Optare has won 100% of Greater Manchester Integrated Transport Authority’s order for up to 66 hybrid buses in the face of stiff competition. The order is worth up to £13m.

It is the largest single order for hybrid buses so far to be placed with help from the government’s Green Bus Fund, which encourages low emission bus use. GMITA has secured over £3m from the Fund and £1.3m from other funders, including Wigan Council, to assist in the purchase of the buses.
