Details: Sullivan Buses is one of several small operators around the country that have adopted practices traditional to London Transport, such as the use of prefixed-fleetnumbers. Taking things a step further, they recently introduced a Lincoln Green livery for the buses on one of their commercial services (the 306 from Watford to Borehamwood). This shade was used by London Transport for all of its 'country' area vehicles until the operations were hived-off to form London Country Bus Services in 1970. To support their commercial routes, Sullivan Buses obtained a fifth Renault Zoe electric car in autumn 2019, and this was given the fleetnumber EC5 (for Electric Car). While earlier EC1 to EC4 carry a red livery with details of the operator's TfL routes on the sides, EC5 was painted (or more accurately 'wrapped') in Lincoln Green, and has branding for routes 306, 398 and B3. The leaf logos (for 'green' vehicles) are also carried, though changed from green to an autumnal orange/yellow to sit better on the base colour. The new addition was photographed at the South Mimms operating base on 21st September 2019. It has to be said that this shade of green, which is fine on something like an RMC bus, looks a bit odd on a modern car.
