OT1-16

History:

This batch of 16 was new in 2011 for route H37. They were the first and only London spec diesel Optare Tempos in London. Another batch had actually been ordered, however due to production delays this was cancelled.

In 2018 some were loaned to EB to cover the gain of route 293. Upon contract renewal, new buses were ordered to replace this batch. This was apparently due to there being no Euro 6 conversion available at the time. The last Tempo continued until May 2019, giving them an 8 year lifespan in London.

5/16 remain missing, whether they were sold or scrapped is unknown.
