A Tale of Two Cities for Volvo B11Rs

Two new Volvo B11R coaches with Jonckheere bodywork are operating out of the capital cities of London and Edinburgh for City Circle.

Earlier this year and due to its increased business success, City Circle needed to source two new coaches and Volvo was able to meet the company’s requirements in plenty of time for the start of the busy summer touring season.

The B11Rs both have 53 seat capacity and include all the expected features of today’s coach travel passenger with TV screens, DVD, hot drinks serveries, fridges and on-board toilets for the comfort and convenience of passengers.

Neil Pegg, Managing Director for City Circle explained:  “We have two depots located in London and Edinburgh which service our UK and continental touring operations, and our busy 2014 schedule determined our need to source two new coaches as quickly as possible.

“Jo Standbridge, Volvo’s Regional Sales Manager who was extremely helpful throughout the process, was able to secure the coaches we needed in the required timeframe and we therefore had no hesitation in placing our order with Volvo for the two new B11Rs.”

Jo Standbridge said:  “The Volvo B11R chassis is very well known for its quality and technical specification for operators as well as providing the high standard of service and comfort expected by today’s coach traveller. We are delighted that City Circle chose Volvo to supply these two new additions to their busy fleet.”

The B11R is at the centre of Volvo’s next generation of coaches and the key features and benefits include the renowned Volvo I-Shift transmission, automatic function check and trouble-free maintenance.  It also benefits from a range of Volvo’s well known safety features, such as the powerful EBS controlled disc brakes and a multiplexed electronics system.

City Circle operates throughout the UK and Europe offering coach services to the leisure, corporate and tourism sectors.  The company prides itself on offering an extremely high level of service to its customers.
