The family owned and run business has opted for a repeat order of the 53-seater B11R with Jonckheere bodywork, due to the excellent performance received from its existing coach of the same specification.
Shane Nuttall, Managing Director for Redline Travel, said: “With such a high percentage of our fleet being Volvo, we have enjoyed good overall performance from our existing vehicles over the years, particularly the B11R which gives us excellent fuel economy figures. This made the choice of another coach of the same type for our next purchase an easy one.
“Our new coach will be used for a range of tour work as well as local school contracts. We are highly regarded by our customers for the quality of our services and much of this is down to the standard of vehicles we use.”
To meet the high expectations of today’s seasoned traveller, the coach has been fitted with a luxury outback cloth interior, a centrally located on-board toilet and a fridge, as well as a hot and cold drinks servery.”
Phil Hudson, Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager for Volvo Bus, said: “Redline Travel is a very well known coach company and has a high profile in the local area and we’re proud to see the Volvo iron mark on the majority of their fleet.
“Increasingly the B11R’s reputation for its excellent fuel efficiency and overall performance is making it a popular choice with operators around the UK and it is great that Redline have come back to us again for their latest new coach.”
Shane Nuttall added: “Aftersales service and back up is, as with most leading operators, critically important for our operation and we have an excellent relationship with our local dealership, Thomas Hardie in Preston, which was another reason for us going for Volvo again this time.”
Based just outside Preston city centre, Redline Travel is one of the North West region’s leading coach and bus hire companies and has been offering luxury travel services to its customers for the last 28 years.
