Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• Burnley and Pendle Transport's fleet is undergoing dramatic change as the company begins running trials with 33-seat midibuses on minibus and big-bus routes, and brings in new single-deckers.

The Lancashire municipal operator has bought four Reeve Burgess-bodied Mercedes 811D midibuses, and some ageing double-deckers are expected to be withdrawn.

Two Volvo Citybus D 10Ms have also joined the fleet, fitted with 51-seat East Lancashire Coachbuilders single-deck bodywork. They replace old Bristol VRTs, are rated at 162kW (217hp) and are fitted with THD101GB engines and four-speed ZF 4HP500 automatic gearboxes. The interiors feature many Diptac aids, including zig-zag step nosings and bright handrails with palmoperated bell pushes.

The company has recently won a three-year contract for the Bury to Edenfield service, and the new midis are providing increased capacity.
