No Brexit worries for BusyBus as it targets tours


One new minicoach coming for Lake District tours and more not ruled out by Cheshire-based operator

BusyBus will introduce tours departing from the Lake District in February

Small group tours specialist BusyBus will extend its sightseeing programme in February by offering new departure points within the Lake District to complement existing start points in Chester, Liverpool and Manchester.

It has ordered a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter minicoach from EVM for delivery in April that will cover the increased requirement and Managing Director Peter Rosenfeld does not rule out adding further new vehicles this year to take the BusyBus fleet to eight.

Adds Operations Director Vera de Ruiter: “We’re excited to be growing as fast as we are. We remain optimistic that tourism will see a sustainable rise over the coming decade, regardless of what happens with Brexit.”

Tours that begin in the Lake District will depart from Ambleside, Bowness, Kendal and Windermere on a half- and full-day basis.

The BusyBus model is to offer what is describes as “a fully-narrated, entertaining day out.” It serves routes that are often too small for full-size coaches to navigate. “We have invested in the best vehicles and, more importantly, the best tour escorts, who love their jobs almost as much as our clients love their trips,” adds Ms de Ruiter.
