Blackbird New Buses. Again.

Blackbird Leys seems to have a lot of new buses because just after the Streetdecks by Oxford came in, Stagecoach put new Enviro 400MMCs on Route 1.

These buses replace hybrid Enviro 400s which aren't exactly that old anyway!

The ride isn't too bad on either bus. The seats are better on the MMC than on the Streetdeck. However, the Streetdeck has next stop information and wi-fi whilst the Stagecoach MMC doesn't.

It has turned out to be the competition of angular styles. Pick which one is the best. Blackbird Leys and those under the 1/5 route certainly have that choice!
