Wilson’s of Rhu, a family run business based near Helensburgh, on the west coast of Scotland, has taken delivery of a new 12.2m, 70-seat Plaxton Leopard.
The stylish new vehicle, which has alloy wheels, Buckingham Prime seats with burgundy moquette, Thermo King air-conditioning, Bosch CR24 sound and PA systems, has gone straight into service on local school runs and private hire contracts.
Based close to Loch Lomond and the main tourist routes to the north, Wilson’s of Rhu is well located to provide coach services for the three main airports in Central Scotland, namely Glasgow, Prestwick and Edinburgh, while also running local bus routes in Helensburgh, Vale of Leven, Alexandria, Dumbarton, Milton, Paisley, Coulport, Kirkmichael and Churchill.
Company Director Alistair Wilson commented: “We have been in business for over 30 years and pride ourselves in a continuous investment programme that ensures we maintain a modern, efficient and environment-friendly fleet.
“In that time we have also enjoyed a long and successful relationship with Plaxton and the new Leopard, like its fore-runners, combines class-leading passenger appeal with a track record of outstanding performance. Our latest addition has slipped seamlessly into the fleet and brings an added dimension to our line-up as we strive to meet the every-increasing demands of our various client groups.”
