SCOTTISH CITYLINK LAUNCHES NEW COACHES ON GLASGOW - SKYE ROUTE


Coach operator Scottish Citylink has introduced new state of the art vehicles improvements for customers travelling between Glasgow, Fort William and Skye.

Following last year’s investment of £1 million in a new fleet of coaches for the route, the company has introduced a further two vehicles for passengers. The latest investment means that all vehicles travelling the route have been new within the last 12 months.

The coach operator will introduce the new, state of the art coaches to the 915 and 916 route, which was recently named as the most scenic route in Scotland and the second most scenic route in the UK, by passengers who voted in a UK Bus Users’ poll last month.*

Scottish Citylink Operations Director Peter Knight and David MacGillivray, Managing Director of Shiel Buses, launch the new vehicles in Fort William.

The new Mercedes Tourismo coaches worth over £500,000 are 12.2 metres long with Euro 6 engines and feature toilets, air conditioning, USB charging points and are fully Disability Discrimination Act compliant. They also come with two additional screens allowing passengers to map their exact location along the route. They were introduced to the fleet on June, 1st and are already receiving excellent feedback from both drivers and passengers.

Peter Knight, Operations Director said “This latest investment means that all of our coaches travelling between Glasgow and Skye are now new, state of the art vehicles that offer the hundreds of passengers that travel with us every week the quality and comfort they deserve. The new vehicles come at a great time as we also celebrate the route being named the most scenic across Scotland. We hope our passengers enjoy sitting back and taking in the wonderful views around them.”

David MacGillivray, Managing Director of Shiel Buses who operate the service on behalf of Scottish Citylink said: “We’re proud to have invested £500,000 in these state of the art coaches for the Glasgow- Fort William- Skye route. They will help to offer an additional layer of comfort to passengers taking this beautiful trip across the West of Scotland.”
