Your favourite and least favourite bus
RE: Your favourite and least favourite bus
My favourite has the be the Enviro 200 MMC, the version that Blackpool Transport and Stagecoach Manchester (Stockport) have. The comfortable and quantity of seats that are well spaced out, and the engine sound is just so southing.
As I sadly don't get much chance to ride on that model (except on the occasion it comes on the 11/11A or take a trip to Blackpool), my regular favourite is the Pulsar 2 that Arriva Wythenshawe typically use on the 19/245. It also is comfortable with plenty of seats that are spaced out well.

Whilst I don't have a recollection of my worst bus, I have unfortunately had to endure with Optare Solos that have seen much better days with a ride that is less desired. I'm solely coming from a consumer viewpoint here but found that the TfGM hybrid Optares are much more comfortable to be in and the Solo's that were used on Arriva's 266/267 service were much better buses to be in.

EDIT: I am looking back now and I recall the experiences of Diamond's use of the Mellor Strata's on the 217. These are my worst buses due to their constant electrical faults and the most uncomfortable ride - it was not fun over speed bumps.
