New Mellor strata for Prentice Coaches

Prentice Coaches of Haddington has taken delivery of a new Mellor Strata low-floor bus as the latest addition to its fleet.

This follows an order for a vehicle of the same specification that was delivered in 2016 and was one of the first Strata models to enter service.

Prentice Coaches’ new Strata features a passenger capacity of up to 22, low-entry floor and Sentinel 7 CCTV complete with reverse camera.

“Returning to Mellor for another Strata was an easy decision to make,” says Ross Prentice, managing director. “They involve customers throughout the process and nothing is too much trouble. I have always found them very easy to deal with and the vehicles are fantastic – our drivers and passengers have nothing but good things to say and that’s the important part.”

Based around 15 minutes outside of Edinburgh city centre, Prentice Coaches provides a wide range of trips for a variety of customers including schools and community groups through to corporate clients and public transport.

Since the business was first established in 1991, the company has won Top Independent Operator at the 2016 UK Bus Awards and a silver for the same category at the 2017 ceremony.
