Working group to decide bendy bus fate

Fri, 05 Apr 2013

It is up to a working group to decide if bendy buses should be introduced on the Island – not the government.

That’s according to the Department of Community, Culture and Leisure which says it is waiting for the group’s report before making any decisions.

A £10,000 month long trial of the articulated vehicles recently concluded with the working group due to report back in the near future.

The department says the buses would save £300,000 a year if introduced but that it is for the working group to determine if the vehicles are feasible for use on Manx roads.
