New Volvo B9R for L A Travel
As part of an upgrade to its fleet, Edinburgh based L A Travel have taken delivery of a new Volvo Bus B9R coach with Jonckheere bodywork. Fitted with the rear mounted Volvo D9B engine and incorporating the Volvo I-Shift 12-speed fully automated gearbox, it is fitted with 53 seats, an onboard toilet, a CD/DVD system and TV screens. The vehicle is being used on the company’s contract work, on local school contracts and for private hire purposes.
L A Travel’s Linda Sutherland said, ‘Our experience has repeatedly shown us that Volvo Bus supply solid, reliable and fuel efficient coaches. We’ve had B9R coaches with the Jonckheere bodywork in the past and we certainly like that combination. The drivers appreciate them and so do our regular passengers. Undoubtedly vehicle flexibility played a major role in our decision. We know that the vehicle can be used across various different operations. Volvo Truck and Bus Centre North & Scotland are also excellent with us. We know that if we have any questions or requirements with regards to any of our Volvo vehicles that they will take care of them for us.’
The coach was supplied by Volvo Coach Sales.
