The Travellers Choice has added its first three i6 integrals, supplied by Irizar UK (01909 500514).
All are 12.9m 57-seaters and each has a centre sunken toilet, adaptive cruise control and an integrated coach wash.
Other operators’ advice convinced MD John Shaw to return to DAF power after many years. The coaches have the MX-11 engine coupled to ZF’s EcoLife gearbox. Good experience with the Germany supplier’s products also influenced his decision.
“We hear that modern DAFs are good on fuel and maintenance, plus DAF’s back-up has always been great.
“I took some convincing to go for the Irizar integral, but a factory visit enabled us to see the high standards to which the coaches are built.”
