Bandvulc and Continental are proud to have joined forces with environmental product promotors, EcoDriven to support it’s UK wide Sustainability Showcase tour.
The year-long programme of activity aims to champion sustainable solutions and encourage members of the public to consider the environmental impact of their actions. A classic double-decker bus has been retrofitted with sustainable materials in an attempt to demonstrate their effectiveness throughout its journey.
John Patterson, Managing Director at EcoDriven contacted Continental back in 2022 enquiring about environmentally friendly tyres for the bus, which tied in nicely with the launch of our new Citymaster 5 retread tyre. Engineered with reliability, durability and safety at its core, the Citymaster 5 features extra sidewall reinforcement – perfect protection for the bus as it navigates the busy urban streets of more than 20 towns and cities across the UK.
Along with sustainable, high performing tyres, to help ensure the bus’s tyres remain in peak condition throughout the tour, Continental has fitted its ContiPressureCheck tyre pressure monitoring system to the vehicle. An in-cab display will provide the driver with real-time tyre pressure and temperature information, alerting them to a possible puncture or damaged tyre.
