Volvo B8RLEs for Celtic Travel

Celtic Travel has purchased three new Volvo B8RLE buses for various Trans Cymru service bus routes.

The family-run firm, based in Llanidloes, Powys in Wales, has run coach services for many years and needed three new vehicles to meet the needs of a new bus contract.

“We have always had a great experience with all our previous Volvo vehicles, our fleet is 50 per cent Volvo which underlines this,” says director Phyl Davies. “We purchased three B7RLE buses back in 2012 and have been extremely happy with their operation, so when it came time to expand our fleet, specifying the upgrade on that same vehicle was an easy decision.

“Particularly attractive to us is the new MCV eVoRa bodywork. Among its many excellent features and benefits are its wheelchair accessibility and three-point seatbelts, both elements are very important for the convenience and safety of our passengers.”

Celtic Travel offers a range of coach holidays across Ireland and the UK as well as private hire for day trips and school outings, weddings and sports fixtures.
