The Alexander Dennis Enviro500 (previously known as the TransBus Enviro500) is a three-axle double-decker bus built by Alexander Dennis (formerly by TransBus) in the United Kingdom. It was unveiled in 2002 and is one of the Enviro-series bus models made by TransBus/Alexander Dennis.
The second generation Enviro500, also known as the Enviro500 MMC, was launched in 2012, replacing the original version
SMRT made a total purchase of 201 Alexander Dennis Enviro500s in 2014, some of which are purchased under Bus Service Enhancement Programme Scheme (BSEP), funded by the Land Transport Authority (LTA).
In April 2014, SMRT announced a purchase of 201 Alexander Dennis Enviro500s. These buses were the first double-deckers to be purchased by SMRT. The first two buses were built as demonstrators, with chassis built in Guildford, UK. Alexander Dennis assembled the first demonstrator unit, while Zhuhai Granton Bus And Coach assembled the rest of the buses.
Under the Bus Contracting Model, some of the BSEP buses have been leased by the LTA to other operators.
