We are always encouraged to hear of bus and coach operators putting poppies on their vehicles to support Remembrance Day, as well as those that have fully branded vehicles.

News reaches us of one of National Express Coventry’s famous BendiBuses, 6020 (BJ03ETK) was spotted recently on the streets of Preston.
The Midlands vehicle was running around the Lancashire city as part of an investigation into possible tram services. Because it’s roughly the same length as the proposed trams, the BendiBus was used to test how such a vehicle would perform at major junctions in Preston.
