Farewell to the Olympian - Sat 30 June









We will be saying "farewell" to our last Olympian bus in service.  Since the company was formed in 2010, Xelabus have been operating Volvo and Leyland Olympians throughout the years on all its services.  The buses will be making way for newer, cleaner vehicles as part of the ongoing commitment to greener vehicles.

Gareth Blair, Managing Director said " The Olympian buses have formed the back bone to the fleet since the company was formed in 2010.  They have been incredibly reliable vehicles to operate, however it is time to move towards cleaner vehicles for the environment and as such the last of the Olympians will leave the fleet on Saturday 30th June. "  Xelabus will be operating the last Olympian on the following services:

Service X4 - departing Eastleigh Bus Station 0925, 1325, 1725

Service X6 - departing Eastleigh Bus Station 1115, 1515

Service X7 - departing Eastleigh Bus Station 1215, 1615

A day ticket of £5 allows unlimited travel all day and the company will be issuing a souvenir handout to commemorate the occasion.
