A long standing customer of Volvo, the Chalfont St Peter based operator needed a new Euro VI coach and after seeing the new B11R MCV at Euro Bus Expo, the order for the new vehicle was placed.
Tom Murphy, owner of Ashwood Travel, explained: “Our new coach will be used for private and corporate hire and some school contracts, as well as for UK and continental touring work including France.
“We’ve a number of Volvos in our fleet, including B12s and B7s, and we have always found them to provide us with fuel efficient, reliable service, so had no hesitation in placing the order for this latest addition.”
Jo Baker, Volvo Bus Retail Coach Sales Manager, said: “Ashwood Travel has been a loyal Volvo customer for many years now and we were pleased when they took the decision to order one of our new B11R MCV coaches.
“The vehicle was developed to meet demand for a competitively priced, fixed specification coach, suitable for a wide range of passenger services, while at the same time offering increased choice for operators.
“In addition to the proven performance of the B11R chassis, working with MCV we have created a sleek stainless steel coach body with a modern design and a comfortable interior for passengers and drivers alike. We are confident it will meet Ashwood Travel’s expanding needs perfectly.”
