Mayne Coaches/Volvo B9R Plaxton Elite

Warrington-based Mayne Coaches has taken delivery of a Volvo B9R with Elite bodywork, supplied by Plaxton (01909 551166). .

The 12.6m, wheelchair-accessible Elite has a demountable centre toilet, which when removed allows four additional seats on top of the coach’s nominal capacity of 49. A lift is concealed in the main entrance.

General Manager and Director Amanda Jackson pays tribute to the coach’s flexibility. “While it brings in new business from customers who require wheelchair access, the specification also makes it ideal for our corporate clients and top-notch private hires.”

Amanda and MD Diane Mayne came up with a striking new livery for the Elite, which is a modern interpretation of Mayne’s traditional red and cream scheme.

“We are delighted with the coach,” Amanda adds.
