The Wright StreetLite is a low-floor midibus introduced by Wrightbus of Ballymena, Northern Ireland during the summer of 2010.

VersionsEdit

The StreetLite is available in two differing body styles. The door forward version has the door placed before the front axle of the vehicle. The wheel forward version has the door placed behind the front axle, in a similar layout to the Optare Solo.

The door forward StreetLite is available in lengths of 10.2m and 10.8m, whereas the shorter versions, at 8.8m and 9.5m, use the wheel forward layout in order to save space. Wrightbus claims that the in each length, StreetLite offers more seats than the equivalent competitors.[1]

ServiceEdit

Bus VanninEdit

12 StreetLites are planned to enter service with Isle of Man-based operator Bus Vannin, with six wheel forward and six door forward vehicles, there is also an option for a further 6 StreetLites of an unknown length.[2] Bus Vannin were the first operator to place an order for the StreetLite.[3] Two StreetLites entered service for Bus Vannin on December 5, 2010.

MistralEdit

Wrightbus secured an exclusivity deal with Mistral, a bus sales and rental company. Mistral are the sole selling agents for the StreetLite and are pitching the vehicle as 'Wrightbus+Mistral - the perfect equation'.[4]

Other operatorsEdit

Three StreetLites have been purchased by Padarn Bus for use on tendered routes in Anglesey.[5]
