Female fundraisers attending the Dorset Ladies Driving Challenge at Bovington Army Camp last month had the opportunity to drive one of the eight brand new £190,000 ADL Enviro 400 double deck buses introduced to the morebus fleet. With advice from one of the company’s driving instructors Ivan Tomkins, the lady drivers took the wheel to drive around the army test track.
Two of the attendees, Domimika Steadman, a Labour Planner from Christchurch and Hayley Morris from Parkstone, a PA to an MD of an energy company, said that they enjoyed driving the comfortable, air conditioned, Wi-Fi equipped bus that will be frequently seen operating on the X3 Bournemouth to Salisbury service.
“Neither of us have ever driven a vehicle anywhere near that size,” said Domimika Steadman. “It gave us a greater appreciation of the skills required to be a bus driver.”
Nikki Honer, Marketing and Communications Manager for morebus, said that the company was delighted to be able to lend the bus to support the charity that does so much to provide vital care and support to cancer sufferers and their families.
