Optare has close to one hundred years of history and expertise in bus manufacturing growing out of the famous Leyland brand.
Optare buses are highly advanced and offer some significant advantages for operators thanks to the high technology weight saving monocoque construction, advanced electronics and low emission power options, and our sales and service staff are well trained and understand the products. The monocoque design can save as much as 1.5 tonnes over a traditional ladder chassis bus.
Optare’s line up of buses ranges from the entry level 23 -seater 7.9 metre Solo midi model through the 9.9 metre Solo, the larger Tempo and the flagship Metrocity.
They use latest technology Mercedes Benz and Cummins turbo-diesel engines, mated with Allison automatic transmissions, while advanced pure electric (EV) powered versions are also available across the range.
