Yellow Buses Engineering

Inside the Yellow Buses engineering workshop

Not just buses! We can help you maintain your fleet.

Yellow Buses and Yellow Coaches have a skilled and dedicated team who look after our vehicles. Our staff wash and clean our vehicles, fix any problems, repair any damage, carry out inspections and put our vehicles through MOTs.
 
Our team can help you carry out this work on your fleet.
 
Phil Pannell is our Service Delivery Director and has worked in engineering in the bus industry for over 40 years. He is supported by Andy Goldsmith who is our Engineering Manager and runs the Yellow Buses and Yellow Coaches engineering team.

Bournemouth Transport Ltd (which trades as Yellow Buses and Yellow Coaches) is a founder member of the Earned Recognition Scheme and as a result, is seen as a good operator for engineering standards.

MOT bay at Yellow Buses depot

ATF

Yellow Buses & Yellow Coaches based at Yeomans Ways Bournemouth (behind Castlepoint) have a purpose-built depot designed for the maintenance of buses, coaches and large vehicles. As part of this package, we are working with the DVSA to provide the ATF facilities. Customers can contact our team to book their large vehicle in for MOT test. We are currently working with the DVSA to provide tests on three days of the week. When feasible we aim to extend the days and dates available to most days.

The MOT bay that is used is a drive through one and is ideal for large vehicles.

In order to book your test, please contact Denise by calling 01202 636007

Vehicle Preparation

As mentioned above, Bournemouth Transport Ltd (which trades as Yellow Buses and Yellow Coaches) is a founder member of the Earned Recognition Scheme and as a result, is seen as a good operator for engineering standards. We have been developing the opportunity for operators to place their vehicles with us in order to prepare them for MOT submission all at the same location. This can include bodywork, mechanical and onboard customer environment. 

If you would like to discuss these options further, please contact Andy Goldsmith by emailing him at [email protected]

Coach parking, toilet drop and wash.

At our Yeomans Way depot, we can offer coach operators visiting Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole the opportunity for day parking, the ability to drop the coach toilet at our facilities, and a vehicle wash.

If you would like to take us up on this offer please book this in advance by emailing [email protected].

We would also ask that you pay for this facility in advance by credit or debit card. As part of the package, we will offer the driver and any staff a free day ticket for Yellow Buses to enable them to get around the conurbation during their stay whilst the vehicle is parked.
