The long-standing Volvo Buses customer is a Cambridgeshire based operator which will be using the two coaches to service its existing clientele for a comprehensive range of services including school contracts, corporate hire, airport transfers, weddings, race days, theatre trips and much more.
The tri-axle vehicles are 13.8m in length with a 57-passenger seating capacity.
Commenting on the delivery of these two pre-owned vehicles, Nick Miller Transport Manager at Mil-Ken Travel, said: “We are exceptionally proud to be able to offer groups both small and large with our impressive 36 strong fleet of modern, fully equipped and air-conditioned vehicles.
“We have had exceptional experience with Volvo in the past and the decision to purchase these two vehicles from the business was therefore an easy one.”
The B11R with Volvo’s 9700 body is a fully integrated vehicle regarded as a truly exceptional luxury coach. With a bright interior design, generous space, centre situtated toilet and theatre floor, this coach creates a premium passenger environment. The vehicle also boasts outstanding fuel efficiency that delivers a clear financial upside bringing a tangible return on investment to any business.
Nick continued: “There is no disputing the strong and credible reputation the Volvo 9700 has based on its operational performance, fuel efficiency and impressive aesthetic appearance. This has been a key requirement for us recently given the Low Emission Zone criteria that came into effect in London and surrounding areas in 2008 and was a driving factor in us taking delivery of these two coaches.”
Richard Mann Volvo Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager said: “Mil-Ken Travel has been a highly valued and established customer of Volvo Buses for several years now. We are delighted they have chosen these pre-owned integral B11R 9700 as their latest vehicle upgrade and I am confident the business will be able to reap the benefits from it moving forward.”
