Hybrid buses on Salford Quays Link – photo report

Multimodal MediaCityUK

Following on from Martin’s blog on Sunday, I struck out from Salford Crescent on my journey home this evening to check out the new Salford Quays Link bus service to MediaCityUK. Here’s some photos.

Salford Quays Link   Salford Shopping City Quays Link   Makeshift branding
Branded Salford Quays Link material, a mixture of modern, make-do and makeshift

The bus stop at Salford Crescent in the shadow of the dual carriageway but handy for the railway station footbridge

TfGM bus shelter
Transport for Greater Manchester’s first branded bus shelter located near The Lowry forms the first stop on the way to Salford Crescent

Optare Versa hybrid
Three vehicles seem to be used during the daytime – two vehicles can be seen in the photo above, with an almost ten minute layover opposite the Lowry Outlet Mall

Interior moquette is grey and green, unlike the “moleskin and leather” finish to the Manchester Metroshuttle hybrids

    What I intended to say was these new buses give a very good image for this new route. The interior moquette is far superior to the Metroshuttle seat covering, as those buses need a much harder wearing material due to the passenger numbers carried. The new livery is very trendy!!
