New luxury Stagecoach service
Stagecoach has announced it is to launch a new Citylink Gold service in Scotland using two 15m Volvo based Plaxton Elite 54-seater coaches operated by Parks of Hamilton with leather seats, tables, power sockets, a toilet and free Wi-Fi. From 19 July, the new services will operate between Edinburgh and Aberdeen, with two departures in each direction every day of the week. Customer service hosts will provide passengers with at seat, rail-style service. The launch follows the success of the existing Citylink Gold services that link Glasgow with Aberdeen and Inverness.
MD of Stagecoach’s UK Coach Division, Elizabeth Esnouf, said, ‘Our Citylink Gold services in Scotland have proved extremely popular so we are delighted to be expanding the network. This new link between Edinburgh and Aberdeen will provide customers with a new luxury travel option. More and more people are making coach travel their number one transport choice. These new services offer a comfortable and stress-free journey that takes passengers right to the heart of the city and lets them enjoy luxury travel at affordable prices.’
