Oxford Tube begins Panorama roll out
Stagecoach’s Oxford Tube is now rolling out its order of Plaxton Panoramas into service.
Built at the Plaxton factory in Scarborough on Volvo B11RLE chassis, they will replace and expand the Oxford Tube fleet. They were due to enter service this summer but were delayed due to the affects of the pandemic.
The frequent express service connects Oxford and London.
Onboard features on the Panoramas include wireless and USB charging, reading lights and extendable tables complete with mobile device and cup holders throughout, in addition to extra leg-room and reclining seats. The new coaches have been designed to improve the service for those with additional accessibility needs with a more seamless boarding process for wheelchair users.
The Plaxton Panorama was first launched in 2018. With a flat lower saloon floor, its interior can be tailored to the requirements of express coach operations with flexible configurations that enhance accessibility.
