The three former Konectbus vehicles join eighteen similar W reg vehicles that are in the process of arriving from Go-Ahead London, all of the vehicles have undergone a full interior and exterior refurbishment including conversion to single door layout and repaint into the new Chambers livery.

Several of the new additions have entered service with more expected to be in service in the coming weeks, they replace the current fleet of step entrance double deckers, mainly Volvo Olympians, that formed the backbone of the Chambers fleet before Go-Ahead acquired the company in June 2012.
