Yelloway Coaches adds a Plaxton Leopard

A new addition to the Oldham-based Yelloway Coaches fleet is a Volvo B8R with 70-seat Leopard bodywork. It has been supplied by Plaxton (01909 551166).

The 12.2m coach is finished in the operator’s famous yellow livery. It has a D8K engine mated to ZF’s EcoLife automatic gearbox.

Says Yelloway Coaches MD Mark Brook: “The Leopard ticks all the boxes in terms of capacity, comfort and a proven track record. It also has a real street presence and helps us to make a statement about our business.

“We are kept busy with corporate hires, excursions and contracts for schools and education authorities. All of those can be undertaken by the versatile Leopard. We’ve come a long way since the early 1900s, when our first tour departed.”
