Optare has completed the delivery of 16 Visionaire open-top tour buses to Arriva for use on its London sightseeing operation, The Original Tour. They have 97 seats and are based on 12.3m-long Volvo B9TL tri-axle chassis. Colin Atkins, managing director, says: “Optare has performed well in meeting our detailed and exacting requirements and in delivering them on time. Their many passenger-friendly features include low floor and wheelchair accessibility, which is particularly welcome as London prepares to host both the Olympic and Paralympic games.”

The Original Tour claims to be the largest single operation of its kind in the world. It was started by London Transport in 1951.
