Renault Master

54093/4 - VN52KXM & VO52XUM

In September 2003 two Renault Master vehicles joined the the First Midland Red fleet. The vehicles were owned by the Passenger Fleet Transport Unit of Worcestershire County Council. The buses were part of a batch of vehicles that were purchased using money from a successful Rural Bus Challenge bid to the Department for Transport in 2001. As part of the County Council's strategy to improve public transport a network of low floor bus services were introduced under the brand name of easyLink. To compliment these services a number of feeder services were also introduced using the brand name of easyLink Flexi. The easyLink Flexi routes were operated by a fleet of 15-seat Rohill Harrier bodied Renault Master vehicles on a demand responsive basis. Users were required to book journeys via a centralised and dedicated County Council booking line on 08457 125 436. On 18th September 2003 First Midland Red starting operating the new services 954 and 955 routes between Evesham and Pebworth using the two vehicles. The 954 and 955 services were withdrawn as part of the 26th February 2006 bus service changes and the two Rohill vehicles were returned to the County Council in March 2006. After trading in a period of administration Rohill finally closed in October 2005 and all production of their various accessible minibuses mainly based on the Renault Master chassis ended.
