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.
RSP08 is a unique single decker bus developed to undertake a variety of event duties including both promotional and exhibition along with its primary role as a mobile classroom training bus.
This single decker’s promotional bus features include external vinyl branding over the buses black painted bodywork, internal branding areas at various locations within the bus allowing clients to really highlight the product, service or concept the bus is about.
The bus has the ability to undertake both group presentations and display product/service/concept information at the same time, with group presentation facilities in the rear section and optional computer enabled worktops in the forward section. The bus also comes with its own WI-FI network which can be connected to a mobile broadband network for internet access.
The vehicle has a hospitality kitchen capable of supplying a constant stream of hot/cold drinks from the provided water urn with the addition of leather covered, cushioned bench seating to the rear meeting room, some seating with storage under.
