Alexander Dennis Limited and the UK arm of Sweden’s Scania are teaming to bring a new CNG-fueled transit bus to the British market.

The collaborative venture, says a Scania GB release, “will see Scania supply its KUB chassis and high pressure lightweight composite tanks to Alexander Dennis Limited for fitment of an adapted Enviro300 43-seat, 12.2-meter [40-foot] overall length body.”
