A new coach, updated logos and livery and an awards dinner to attend!!

It is with immense pride that we can announce that next Wednesday 2nd October 2013 we will be attending the Route One Operator Excellence Awards in Birmingham.

This will be the third year in a row, which is unprecedented for a Scottish coach operator, that we have been finalists in these prestigious awards. In November last year we were astounded when we were announced as the winners of the 'Medium Coach Operator of The Year 2012'  having been finalists in the same category for the first time in 2011.

The fleet sizes have changed this year so we are now classified in the 'Small Coach Operator of the Year' category, which this year is 1 to 15 coaches. Although our fleet is bigger than this our service buses are not taken into account by the judges. We are one of only five companies from throughout the UK who have been shortlisted in this category.

We could not achieve this level of success without the hard work and commitment that everyone who works with us puts in every day and is further testament to the quality of service we provide our customers.

We will find out at the Gala Dinner on 2nd October whether we have managed to make it two wins in a row. You cannot nominate yourself for these awards, all nominations come from within our industry, so it makes it all the more special to have been judged worthy of nomination and then short listing three years in succession. You can see how we found out we had won last year by watching the clip below, which was filmed on the night.

And the winner is....

And the winner is...

On the evening of 7th November 2012 we attended the Route One Operator Excellence Awards at the Hilton Metropole in Birmingham along with 780 other guests.

We were one of 5 finalists in the 'Medium sized Coach Operator of the Year' catagory. Here is what happened...

New 29 seat Mercedes

Our latest new coach:

The latest addition to our fleet, a 29 seat Mercedes Plaxton Cheetah, arrived in early July. It is the first vehicle to feature our new logo and striking new livery, which we have started applying to some of our recent vehicles as well. It features 29 reclining seats with 3 point seatbelts and has Air Conditioning as standard.

We were extremely flattered that Coach and Bus Week Editor Gareth Evans asked if he could use one of our photo's of the coach as the 'Big Picture' centrefold feature in the magazine a few weeks ago. He originally saw the photo on our Flickr page, you can see our other photo's here -
