Docherty’s Midland Coaches/Volvo B9R Plaxton Elite

Transport for a busy summer of Scottish sport will be helped by the arrival of two Volvo B9Rs with Elite bodywork in the Auchterarder-based fleet of Docherty’s Midland Coaches, supplied by Plaxton (01909 551166).

.“The Elites represent a good deal for the business,” says Director Neil Docherty. “They bring style, kerb appeal and a fresh look to the fleet.”

Both coaches have 51 Fainsa seats with three-point belts, finished in blue moquette with leather piping. A sunken centre toilet is provided with a servery area above, and also present is a fridge. Entertainment comes from a Bosch system with DVD capability.

On-board vacuum cleaners are fitted, as are eight-camera CCTV systems. The Elites’ look has been enhanced by select registrations and Alcoa Durabrite alloy wheels.
