South West Coaches takes B8Rs for new contracts

Yeovil-based South West Coaches has taken delivery of two new Volvo Bus B8R Euro 6 single-deck buses for new routes in Somerset.

The two MCV Evolution-bodied buses will operate on services recently won by South West Coaches on the Yeovil – Crewkerne – Chard routes, and will also be used for school and college contract work.

“Upon being awarded these new routes, we had a need for quality, high specification and volume capacity vehicles,” says Alan Graham, South West Coaches. “Our new buses feature all the latest passenger safety, comfort and convenience benefits, such as three-point lap belts and security cameras.

“We have a large proportion of Volvo buses and coaches within our fleet and our experience of the product has always been excellent, so we had no hesitation in going for Volvo again this time.”

South West Coaches has been established for more than 75 years and is a family-owned and run business. The company has depots in Wincanton, Yeovil and Portland, and also has its own maintenance team and facilities. With more than 95 vehicles in the fleet, South West also offers coach tours and excursions.
