Richmond Coaches have added three Euro 6 Solos to their fleet. Established in 1946 Richmond Coaches is a family owned company located near Cambridge.
The 9.2m, Euro 6, Solos seat up to 30 and will serve routes 386 and 90/91 for Hertfordshire County Council following a recent tender award.
Andrew Richmond, Managing Director at Richmond’s Coaches, said, “As part of our service to the local community we operate in, we are always looking for the most environmentally friendly and fuel efficient ways to transport our passengers around Hertfordshire and the Solo with the latest Euro 6 engine meets our requirements perfectly.
We currently have 6 Solos in the fleet including the three new ones. We bought our first solo in 2000 and have always bought them new. Our experience has been excellent with Optare giving great back up to the product and we have had great feedback from the passengers and drivers. Should we need another bus a Solo would be our choice.”
Tim Matthews, Head of Sales at Optare, said, “I am delighted to hear that the Optare Solo is Richmond Coaches bus of choice and that the Optare product and service back up has supported this operator in delivering an outstanding service for its passengers.”
