Yellow Coaches turn green

5 months ago Tue 3rd Mar 2020

Yellow Coaches is upgrading its vehicles to ones that are so green they produce less harmful nitrogen oxide than the average family diesel car.

And the operator – part of Bournemouth-based Yellow Buses – has re-branded its fleet so they stand out even more on the roads.

Two new luxury specification Irizar i6 Integral coaches have been added and can enter the increasing number of Clean Air Zones.

Yellow Coaches has grown rapidly over the last year and now has a dedicated team, uniform and identity.

Jay Thornton of Yellow Coaches said “The management buyout of Yellow Buses last year provided an opportunity to review our coaching fleet plans and adjust the business to tackle some industry challenges and better meet client demand, such as the increasing number of Clean Air Zones.

“Irizar are one of the best all-round brands on the UK market and we acquired our first in September 2019, retro-fitted to Euro 6 standard.

“We returned to Irizar in December to acquire two further Integral i6 coaches which boast a high specification, a superior level of comfort and are equipped with modern Euro 6 technology.

“This enables us to enter clean air zones in UK cities, lowering our carbon footprint, seeing higher client satisfaction and improved fuel efficiency.

“I am immensely proud of the progress Yellow Coaches has made in private hire and contracts.

“When I joined the Yellows just over a year ago, I stated that I would grow our client base, aim to exceed customer expectations and add more vehicles as we move forward. 

“Our private hire business has been turned around and is barely recognisable 12 months on having been given its own identity, a dedicated team, new uniform and now a refreshed fleet to help move us forward.”
