Abbey Coaches of Glasgow has taken delivery of a new Plaxton Panther coach, manufacturer Alexander Dennis (ADL) has announced.
The 57/59-seater follow other recent acquisitions of the same vehicle, which are also based on the Volvo B8R chassis, made by the operator.
Abbey’s fleet of around 20 is mostly Plaxton vehicles as the business continues a relationship with ADL which goes back more than two decades.
The newest addition comes with demountable toilet new Vogelsitze Magnio seats, wood-effect flooring, destination display and wheelchair lift.
Abbey Coaches, which is managed by Christine Walker and son Graeme, operates a mix of services and hires for local government, businesses and leisure customers.
Ms Walker says: “The flexibility and versatility of Plaxton coaches is ideal for our business and the varied work we undertake for our customers. This is why in addition to this year’s new Panther, we have already placed an order for another of the same type for delivery next year.”
Charlie Miller, Retail Sales Director at Alexander Dennis, adds: “We’re delighted to do business with Christine and Graeme again, not just for the new Panther but also their first used Leopard from us, which not only adds capacity but is Euro VI-compliant for low emission zones. Abbey Coaches’ loyalty to us as a business is very much appreciated and never taken for granted. It’s been a pleasure to deal with them again and support them in their purchases.”
