Reading Buses has launched its new £4 million fleet.
The vehicles are low emission, fitted with the cleanest diesel engine on the market and will serve the south of Reading.
They also feature USB charging ports and customers are able to use 4G wi-fi.
Martijn Gilbert, Reading Buses chief executive, said: "The buses are the first in the fleet to offer USB charging points.
"In addition they are the first new buses in the country to be fitted with the new high-spec Italian designer seats.”
Reading Buses also broke the record for having the world’s fastest, after they clocked more than 80mph at a record-breaking attempt on a test track near Bedford.
