Optare is one of the most respected names in the United Kingdom bus industry. Optare designs, manufactures and sells single deck and double deck buses, and offers a comprehensive after sales service.
Building on a history of innovation, Optare has developed a range of low-carbon buses using enhanced diesel technology, alternative fuel options and hybrid systems, and even full electric drivelines which are available across entire product ranges. And with reduced weight designs and optimised drive systems, Optare has set the benchmark for fuel economy and CO2 reduction.
Optare's buses operate not only in the United Kingdom but also in Continental Europe, North America and further afield. The Company also supplies complete vehicles, CKD or SKD kits, technology transfer and licensing agreements worldwide.
Optare's integrated design is unique and features an easily demountable power pack. This allows buses to be future proofed, giving operators peace of mind since, with continued rapid advances in low carbon technology, Optare buses can be upgraded to whatever is the best system over the 10 to 15 year life of the bus.
