44511/4/5  DK57SPZ/MX07OZD/MX10DXU

With a need for additional newer vehicles in the First Group fleet they have in recent years turned to the second hand market of buses mainly sold through the vehicle dealer  Ensignbus. In the summer of 2012 First acquired 6 Enviro 200 vehicles from Ensignbus  and two were allocated to Worcester. They are DX57 SPZ and MX07OZD  which were new with Leeway Bus Co of Holywell in North Wales in November and March 2007 respectively. The vehicles arrived in Worcester on the 29th and 30th August 2012 respectively in the latest version  of the corporate livery. Both lacked local fleet names (which they were latter fitted with) and fleet numbers. Both entered service quickly though for a number of weeks neither carry fleet numbers or any form of destination display other than pieces of paper in the windscreen. On July 25th 2013 MX10DXU arrived at Worcester. This vehicle had been operated by Premier of Nottingham and arrived via Ensign Bus. The vehicle was placed in store before it was prepared for service. On Saturday 3rd May 2014 45511 was reallocated to Hereford Garage from Worcester mainly to work a new contracted service 34. On closure of Hereford Garage all three vehicles ended up at Worcester Garage. They were not the most reliable of vehicles and during the Summer of 2019 all three moved to First PMT.

44604/10/3 YX14RUJ/UY/VE

44604, YX14RUJ was originally part of a 31-vehicle order in 2014 for First Cymru. The vehicles taking the fleet numbers 44602-31. 44613-21 were initially delivered new to the First Games fleet for the London Olympic before entering normal service in South Wales. Many of the batch of vehicles are still based in South Wales and carry several different local liveries. 44604 is one that had remained in standard First Olympic livery which probably influenced why that vehicle was transferred to Worcester in early March 2024 in exchange for one of Worcester depot’s Streetlites. On Thursday 21st March 2024 44604 was joined by sister vehicle 44613 again from First Cymru. Worcester based Streetlite 47440 went in the opposite direction in exchange.
