Gold brand launched in Merseyside and Lancashire by Stagecoach
The Stagecoach gold brand has been rolled out in Merseyside and Lancashire with 18 new Enviro300s added in Merseyside and 24 Enviro400s in Preston. The new buses are the first Stagecoach gold vehicles in each county. All the buses are Euro 5s and offer free wi-fi and USB charging ports.
“Our new fleet of gold standard buses are top of the range and will deliver a new level of quality for passengers,” says Elisabeth Tasker, managing director, Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire. “We continue to significantly invest in our fleet to improve our service and passenger experience, without passing on any additional cost to our customers. These ‘next generation’ buses will enhance connectivity, comfort and sustainability for passengers– signifying our solid commitment to delivering an unbeatable, eco-friendly travel experience.”
The E300 Stagecoach gold buses will operate on the 1 and 2 service which runs between Liverpool, Wirral and Chester including Chester Zoo, Blue Planet Aquarium and Cheshire Oaks. In Lancashire, the E400 Stagecoach gold buses will operate on the 125 service between Preston and Bolton via Chorley. Tickets on gold routes will cost the same as on normal Stagecoach buses and are available online or on the bus.
