Ipswich: Town’s bus company unveils new colours

IPSWICH: A bold new look has been unveiled for the town’s buses.

All Ipswich Buses will be painted in the new green and purple livery as they go into the works for a major overhaul over the next two years.

The new look was unveiled by managing director Malcolm Robson at a special bus “surgery” on the Cornhill at Ipswich where users of all buses in the area could give their views on services – and meet county council officials responsible for promoting public transport.

Special guest at the event was Gillian Merron, chair of Bus Users UK, the official watchdog for passengers, and a former transport minister.

She said: “Events like this are very important because they give passengers the chance to give their views – and it is especially important that the county council listens to people.

“I am aware there have been concerns about the loss of some services as a result of budget cuts recently.”

Mr Robson said there had been a positive reaction to the new colour scheme: “It is certainly eye-catching. We’ve had people comparing it with Wimbledon tennis colours, you certainly can’t miss it,” he said.
