The withdrawal of Go-Ahead London (London Central & London General) PVL’s fleet has started.
Many of the early batches of vehicles have already left the fleet. Some have been transferred to other Go-Ahead Bus Operators across the UK whilst others have been sold to private buyers or scrapped.
The PVL (President model with a Volvo engine) has been the back bone of the London Central and London General fleet for many years. They have appeared on nearly all of the double decker routes each company operate.
With more newer Enviro400’s, Gemini 2, Gemini 3 and New Routemasters joining the London Central and London General fleet - the PVL days are quickly getting shorter.
