New double deck buses on our Service 124

We’re delighted to be introducing eight brand new, low emission double deck buses to our fleet with at an investment of nearly £2m.

Showcased in North Berwick last weekend, the Euro 6 Volvo B5’s will operate on our popular Service 124 route to increase the capacity on this service for our customers.

The custom built buses all include USB charging points, a new design of luxury high-back seating, more window space for improved visibility and media screens with next stop audio and visual announcements, to give our customer the best possible travel experience.

Mark Heritage, EastCoastBuses General Manager said:

We are delighted that year on year we can continue to invest in our fleet for the benefit of our customers and driving team. These bespoke, high quality vehicles have been designed with comfort and safety in mind and will enhance the customer experience while travelling across the county.

This level of investment highlights our continued commitment to the local community and builds on our promise to provide a first class service for the area. Since starting operations in the area where bus usage had seen year on year decline, we have in the last two years seen customer growth of over 52% which is a real testament to our dedicated workforce who deliver a fantastic customer experience every day. This proves undoubtedly that by designing routes and services based on what our customers want, coupled with investment and high standards of service delivery, we can reverse much of the decline that is being seen in bus usage across the country.

Look out for them on your travels.
