Gibson Direct takes four 70-seat Plaxton Leopards

The four new Plaxton Leopard for Gibson Direct are 12.2m 70-seat models

Renfrew operator Gibson Direct has added four Volvo B8Rs with Leopard bodywork to its fleet, supplied by Plaxton (01909 551166).

All four are 12.2m models that seat 70. They each come with LED running lights, an audio and PA system, CCTV incorporating a reversing camera, three-point belts, a driver support system and alloy wheels.

Says Owner Robert Gibson: “We have a busy operation that covers territories across Glasgow, Renfrewshire, Helensburgh, Johnstone, Hamilton, Airdrie, Coatbridge, Cumbernauld, East Kilbride, Livingstone and Dundee, so our drivers regularly encounter some of the busiest and most congested routes in the country.

“That means we need vehicles that perform well, while also being passenger friendly and stylish. The new Leopards meet those criteria.”
