elcome to the 2020 edition of the Bus and Coach Professional Yearbook – a guide to Britain’s bus and coach industry suppliers. The content provides an overview of the products of the main vehicle manufacturers supplying the UK market. The book also includes industry contacts and facts and figures, as well as our operator weblist, with more than 1,000 weblinks, and a directory of industry suppliers. The move to low and zero carbon vehicles continues apace. The market for electric buses in the UK has so far been dominated by BYD with Alexander Dennis but others are competing for the electric future, including the world’s largest bus builder Yutong. The UK used to be able to boast three major manufacturers owned and operated on these shores. But the world has now moved on and this year ADL became the latest to be absorbed by an international player with new US owners, although it remains committed to production at its current sites at Guildford, Falkirk and Scarborough for the time being at least. And as we go to press, the position at Wrightbus looks to be more secure than it was some weeks ago, with the acquisition by Bamford Bus. We look forward to seeing continued production of buses at the Ballymena factory. Wrightbus has been a leading innovator in the UK market, and elsewhere, for decades and it would have been devastating to lose them, so we hope the acquisition heralds a sustainable future for employment in Northern Ireland and loyal Wrightbus customers. Although battery electric buses have come to dominate the environmental agenda and are likely to be the principal answer to zero carbon, they are not the only option. Hydrogen fuel cells could offer a combination of zero emission urban operation with a diesel-like range but finding environmentally sound ways of producing

hydrogen and supplying it to depots remains a key issue. Gas has also re-emerged in recent years with biogas Scanias now operating here. Whether it is around for the long term remains to be seen. In principle the production of biogas, particularly from waste streams could be part of the solution. For coaches, there is still a serious challenge in terms of range when it comes to zero carbon options. Yutong has led the way with its electric coach, but we are still waiting for the quantum leaps that will be required in terms of EV range to make long distance electric coaches realistic, along with the challenge of ensuring easy access to fast charging systems. Air quality remains a here-and-now issue for bus and coach operators however. With most local authorities considering Clean Air Zones opting for a Euro 6 minimum, coach operators need to find ways of upgrading their fleets in short order. Realistic transition periods are required to ensure that the impact of the measures doesn’t mean less coaches, and therefore more cars are on the road. London’s ULEZ scheme deadlines led to coach operators facing real difficulties in upgrading their vehicles with a retrofit solution ahead of the deadline, even if they could afford to. It is hoped that the testing regime and aftermarket solutions will be better organised elsewhere as the CAZs are rolled out. Urban air quality is an issue that is not going to go away and for the bus and coach sector to position itself as part of the solution, will require expensive upgrades and premature vehicle replacement that could well stretch some smaller operators beyond their means and result in a significant re-shaping of the sector. There is never a shortage of topics to discuss in the industry, and we will try to keep you up to date in Bus and Coach Professional and online at greenbusandcoach.com

Optare is pinning its hopes for the MetroDecker on the EV variant. The diesel MetroDecker has a Euro 6 Mercedes-Benz OM934LA 5.1-litre engine. A dual-door version has been developed for London, and a single-door model for other operators. Thanks to its low unladen weight – 9.8 tonnes – it can in theory carry 100 passengers.

director Andrew Watkiss. “We felt the coach ticked many boxes that we needed, coupled with a competitive price.”

Flagship Irizar i8s for Johnsons JOHNSONS Coach & Bus Travel has taken two Irizar i8 Integrals as flagship vehicles for its holiday and excursion operations. The 14.07m, 43-seat tri-axles will serve on Johnsons’ Luxury Traveller programme, which includes stays at four-star hotels, special lunches and other extras. Director John Johnson says: “We have had a Luxury Traveller programme in our brochures for some years now, and while it sells very well the coaches provided have, up to now, only ever been the same coaches as those allocated to all our other tours, which are 49-seat, 13m extra-legroom coaches. “These two new coaches are the flagships for the enhancement of the Luxury Traveller brand for 2020. We looked at other premium level coaches, but the

Irizar i8 Integral stood out as being the best for looks, specification, build flexibility, product quality and aftersales backup. And we like the Integral design. “The i8 Integrals will operate almost exclusively on our Luxury Traveller holidays, short breaks, shows and excursions.” Johnsons’ i8 Integrals will be finished in a new livery designed by Ray Stenning, complimented by black-tint windows. Johnson adds: “We liked the ease with which Irizar could provide a coach with just 43 seats that have consistent ‘first class’ legroom and calf supports.” Other passenger features include a centre toilet with electric hand dryer, Bosch Professional Line audio and twin monitor Actia DVD player. The seating is equipped with a lateral displacement system, magazine-holders, leg-supports, USB charging, and aircraft-style tables. Built-in vacuum cleaners will help to maintain the coaches in immaculate condition on tour, while leather steering wheels provide a touch of luxury for the drivers. Both coaches feature DAF MX-13 355 483hp engines, driving through ZF Traxon automated manual gearboxes. www.irizar.co.uk

Hollinshead Coaches takes Volvo 9900 STOKE-ON-TRENT-BASED Hollinshead Coaches has returned to Volvo for an integral B11R 9900 premium coach. The new 53-seater joins Hollinshead Coaches’ all-Volvo fleet of 14 vehicles. The new coach will be used on the company’s wide range of tours and for its blue-chip client base. Steve Haydon, director, Hollinshead Coaches, says: “We have been loyal Volvo customers for more than 25 years now and have been incredibly impressed by the levels of service and quality of vehicles they offer. The 53-seater with an onboard toilet has become our standard-sized touring coach and the high spec that the 9900 and its predecessor the 9700 have, made them perfect for what we needed. “We have an excellent relationship with the Volvo coach sales team, and I believe they always look after us well, which is why we have been so loyal over the years. We also have excellent relationships with our

local dealer and the front-line technicians who come out to us have been excellent.” Founded in 1926, Hollinshead Coaches’ current operations include private hire, school transport, corporate events, wedding services and its own holiday programme and day excursions.

LandFlight invests in two Mercedes vehicles

LANDFLIGHT invested £325,000 in a new MercedesBenz Tourismo coach and Mercedes V-Class MPV. The coach comes as part of a £2.3million investment by LandFlight to upgrade its entire fleet to comply with Euro 6 emission standards. It joins other 49-seat Tourismo coaches in LandFlight’s fleet and features air-conditioning, a full

leather interior, a hot drinks servery, on-board WC washroom and complimentary wi-fi. The V-Class seats seven passengers and has air-conditioning and full leather interior. “We are excited to be able to introduce these two new vehicles to our fleet,” says LandFlight director Danny Matthews. “Recently we have been working more with tour companies and this is an area we would like to expand on in the future. The new Tourismo coach will be perfect for the needs of the tour industry. “We’re proud to be growing our fleet and to be helping make the West Midlands and Birmingham more environmentally friendly in support of the CAZ. “Many companies who have older, more polluting vehicles will charge customers extra to cover the cost of the new clean air charges.” www.landflight.co.uk
