JMB Coaches of Cookstown has added a B8R with Plaxton Panther bodywork, supplied by Volvo Bus (02476 210250). It is the first new Volvo for the Co Tyrone operator and joins other second-hand examples.
The coach will be used on a variety of work, including private hires, school duties and tours. The B8R’s reputation for fuel economy and the Panther’s build quality were among the reasons why JMB Coaches chose the Volvo Plaxton combination.
Passenger and driver safety were also prime considerations when purchasing the new coach, adds CEO Edwin Henry.
“The Volvo vehicle has all of the best safety features in the form of the Driver Support System. It will help to keep the driver, and in turn passengers, safe on their journey.”
