RSP08 or ‘Saul’ is a 11.5m Mk1 Optare Excel Single Decker bus, after a short stint as a service bus, the bus was bought and developed for a charity as a Youth Engagement vehicle. Upon purchasing the vehicle, we decided to keep much of the interior layout as it was, making a few refinements and modified the interior with a more adaptive set of features to suit a number of different event types.
Latest upgrades include the removal of the buses generator, which was replaced with a bank of leisure batteries and 3kw inverter and a 2nd alternator installed to charge the batteries on the move. The vehicles primary function is as a media bus but is used, on occasion as a training bus, or mobile classroom. However the bus is often used for marketing, informational or as an exhibition bus, type tours.
