Our 102-seat coach is an all British product with a global history!
Built by Leyland, England and bodied by Alexander, Scotland, our gentle giantess started her working life for China Light and Power, Hong Kong. Our vehicle was part of a batch of 15 bought to operate a network of home to work staff shuttle coach services to the power station. A few years after entering service, the network of staff services were revised and the vehicle was purchased by Hong Kong Citybus.
Fast forward a few years and the batch of vehicles were repatriated back to Blighty to continue their working lives for a variety of diverse coach operators the length and breadth of the land.
Before settling for a life beside the seaside with Dekkabus, our vehicle first re-entered service in Essex for a while and then on to Glasgow. The sunnier climes of the south coast drew the vehicle back south of the border and a Hampshire coach firm operated the globe trotter until March 2017.
After an extensive overhaul and refurbishment costing many, many thousands of pounds, the end result is a vehicle presented to the highest finish, maintained with pride and passion and driven by only the chosen few.
We are delighted to advise customers old and new of our latest fleet addition. Our magnificent 102-seat coach is now available for hire to everyone!
