John Ferguson Mini Bus Hire, based in the village of Throsk, near Stirling, has added a new Alexander Dennis 8.9m Enviro200 to its fleet of vehicles.
The business, now operated by mother and daughter team Jennifer Ferguson and Louise Speirs, is well known throughout Stirlingshire as a leading supplier of contract and public service vehicles and the introduction of a 29-seat midi bus is seen as a "natural progression towards the future."
Company director Louise explained: "My late father started the business 32 years ago and since then we have steadily built a reputation for quality services and continuous improvement, so the introduction of the Enviro200 is a natural progression towards the future. It is also a demonstration of our commitment and further investment in services between Stirling Bus Station and the village of Fallin. We continue to build on the firm foundations my father set for the business."
She added: "Opting for an Enviro200 wasn’t a difficult decision. The vehicle’s reputation for fuel efficiency and performance speaks for itself. The fact that we are based 11 miles from ADL’s Falkirk factory also influenced our thinking. We have been impressed by the support and back-up we have received from the company’s sales team and aftermarket representatives."
This latest addition to the Ferguson fleet is powered by a Cummins ISBe 140PS engine, coupled with an Allison S2100 gearbox. It has Civic V2 seats, a Mobitec LED destination board and Synetics CCTV and recorder system.
