Blackpool Transport had a staff launch of their new Mercedes Citaro Euro VI buses yesterday. There are 10 buses in the batch, and all are now believed to have been delivered to BTS. The buses used for the launch ceremony were 556 (BJ15 BEU) and 557 (BG15 BTY), both buses are in a grey and pale yellow livery, with full branding including free Wi-Fi logos and the brand name "Palladium" in three positions. The new buses are going to be used on service 5 from Victoria Hospital to Halfway House via Blackpool Town Centre, and will be receiving a public launch in May. These exclusive photos of the two staff launch buses were captured at Rigby Road depot this afternoon.
