An Optare Alero being operated by Cumfy Bus on a Merseytravel "Joblink" service in Birkenhead
|Operator(s)||Merseytravel and others|
|Floor type||Low floor|
|Options||Various customer options|
The Alero has an Iveco engine and a choice of manual or automatic ZF transmission. It typically seats between twelve and sixteen passengers, capacity being partly dependent upon whether space is provided for a wheelchair. The destination display box is optional.
The Alero was relaunched in 2006 as the Alero Plus. Various changes and component upgrades have been made in an attempt to overcome reliability and durability issues suffered by the original design.
In 2008, the Alero was discontinued. However, Optare have stated that they will continue to offer after sales support.
