Mercedes Citaro


In 2010 Rotala struck a deal with Centro as they were known at the time to operate a network of bus services in the the Solihull area. Rotala created a brand known as Signature for these services. The network of routes included elements that were both tendered and commercial but the whole premise of the network was that the vehicles would be all built to a higher than normal specification. This copied other initiatives around the country like the Stagecoach Gold routes and featured leather seats and WIFI for the passengers. To operate one of the core routes the 82 from Solihull to Coventry three Mercedes single deckers were acquired. With the loss of the contracts for the Signature bus network in Solihull from Sunday 24th February 2019 vehicle 30019 was withdrawn. 30401 had been withdrawn with mechanical issues for a number of months.
