Alexander Dennis Limited, a subsidiary of NFI Group, one of the world’s largest independent global bus manufacturers, has secured an order for 56 Enviro500 three-axle double deck buses from The Kowloon Motor Bus Company, Hong Kong’s largest bus operator.

Paul Davies, Alexander Dennis President & Managing Director, comments: “We are very honoured that KMB continues to place its confidence in Alexander Dennis with this latest order for 56 double deck buses. KMB continually challenges us to raise the bar and these latest 12.8m Enviro500 buses are testament to their commitment to world class passenger services.”
