London Borough of Redbridge gets third i4
With three i4 integrals in its fleet of seven already, London Borough of Redbridge says it looks likely they will run an all-Irizar coach fleet eventually.
Irizar’s workhorse, the i4 is a 55-seater which cuts back on luxuries but is an integral with the same top-quality build standards as its big sister, the i6. Even so, it has a Bosch Audio system, tinted glass, two nearside doors to suit its high-volume work, and styling that still has the ‘wow’ factor.
“We’ve had no problems to speak of with this vehicle,” said LBR Engineering Manager, Eddie Cross. “The drivers like them and I’m sure if the passengers didn’t, we’d have heard about it by now!” he joked.
Redbridge has specified the i6 seats as an upgrade on its coaches, which are used for school contracts, private hire and day trips for community groups: “In due course, all our Plaxton Profiles will be replaced and, if the i4s continue to perform as they have so far, Irizar UK can expect another order,” said Mr Cross.
