Wheelers Travel Ltd of Southampton has taken delivery of the first MOBIpeople Explorer with 74 seats plus courier delivered to a UK operator.
It is also the first coach to feature Wheelers’ newly-designed livery.
MD Derek Wheeler says: “I am so pleased with the vehicle and the concept that we have ordered another identical vehicle. The Explorer is an inexpensive, high-capacity, seatbelted solution.
“With 74 seats we are able to replace some of our double-deck loads with a single-deck Euro 6 coach that goes into London.”
Mick Boniface of BASE Ltd says: “We are delighted to supply Derek with his second MOBIpeople and receive an order for his third.
“Wheelers is a long-standing customer of BASE and we are sure that this latest specification from MOBIpeople will prove to be popular.”
Further information on the Midi Explorer with 29-39 seats or Explorer with up to 74 seats is available at www.basecoachsales.com. It will be on display at the Euro Bus Expo on Stand J100.
