Buzzlines Travel/Irizar i6

A new addition to Kent-based Buzzlines Travel’s fleet is an integral tri-axle i6, supplied by Irizar UK (01909 500514). .

The 13.8m coach was down-seated to 53 before delivery, eight less than the maximum possible, and Operations Director Nigel Busbridge says this was to give passengers extra legroom.

“It is also very well-specified, with headphone sockets at every seat, and 240v chargers via an inverter,” he adds.

“But we had the luggage racks rebuilt so all the passenger-controlled ventilation and lights were directly over the new seating layout.”

Other passenger-friendly aspects of the specification include a DVD system and on-board vacuum cleaner. Xenon headlights are present, as is a remote locking system. Power comes from DAF’s MX engine developing 462bhp driving through ZF’s AS-Tronic automated gearbox.
