It is certainly an interesting bus, but I think 2 doors is overkill. The bus is so short it wouldn't take long for someone to walk to the front, and I doubt dwell times would be an issue on routes that only need a Optare Solo. Some buses in Adelaide are 12.5m and only have a front door!
First person on 822, 865 (2016 re-route).
Last person on 867, 868.
