New SOS Bus to arrive in November
6:20pm Thursday 27th September 2012 in News
COLCHESTER’S new SOS Bus is set to be rolled out in the town in November.
The new vehicle will hit the streets in the middle of the month, aiming to help more people then ever.
A former Essex Libraries bus, the new vehicle will bear little resemblance to the recognisable yellow base in High Street on Friday and Saturday nights.
Wayne Powell, chief executive of Open Road, which runs the service, said: “We are really excited about the new bus.
“It is going to be really different to the current bus.
“Being a former library bus, it is not something we have been used to converting and it has been a difficult process.
“It will be very different to what people have been used to seeing in the High Street.”
