The progress towards seeing electric buses in Norwich has started with the appearance of a Wright StreetDeck Electroliner in the city.
BK73 AEV was observed on Castle Meadow yesterday by Dan High who sent us a few photos of it on test /driver familiarisation workings. Whilst no fleet number was displayed I understand it is to be 36531. It also has lettering denoting that it is 'Funded by the UK Government'
So far six have been delivered; two are at Norwich whilst the others are at another 'undisclosed location'. A total of 59 are anticipated which have been allocated fleet numbers 36530 - 36588.
My thanks to Dan for the photos and to First Norwich
