Timberbush invests £1.1m in MANs
Timberbush Tours has signed agreements to invest £1.1m in five new MAN coaches to replenish part of its 31 strong fleet.
The Edinburgh-based operator is purchasing two 53-seat MAN Neoplan Tourliners and three 32-seater MAN Midi Explorers.
Steve Spalding, CEO of Timberbush Tours, said: “Manufacturers and operators are continually working together to improve the environmental performance of coach engine technology. Research and Development has made significant advances in recent years and given that stringent environmental measures are in place, it is vital we continually invest to ensure we own the most modern, fuel efficient fleet available to the coach tour industry. It is important for the environment, but also in terms of customer safety and comfort too.
Moreover, the entire Timberbush fleet will always be less than three years old. This is our blueprint in an industry where a company’s ‘green’ credentials are a huge consideration for customers.”
The fleet will be used to ferry holiday makers and day trippers to destinations across the Scottish Highlands and Islands, the North of England from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness, as well as for private tours and corporate hires.
