Chronology

The Wright Meridian is a low floor single-decker bus body built by Wrightbus, built on the MAN NL273F chassis. The body is essentially the same as the Eclipse range.

The first production vehicle was launched as a demonstrator at the Coach & Bus live 2007, and after trials was purchased by Whitelaws where it entered service as SF57 FZY. The company has also ordered a further 5 which entered service in July 2008. Two Meridians entered service with Newbury Buses in May 2008.

Four MAN NL273F/Wright Meridians entered service with South Lancs Travel in April 2009, around the same time that Premiere Travel of Nottingham acquired 2 Wright Meridians, which see principal use daily.
