Enviro200 city bound as Garelochhead Coaches spreads it wings

Published: 05 Mar 2019

Garelochhead Coaches, which is well known in the West of Scotland for its bus services in and around Helensburgh, Loch Lomond and much of Bute and Argyll, has spread its wings and introduced a new Enviro200 from Alexander Dennis Limited to operate on a contract won recently in Central Glasgow.

Known as the 100 Riverside Route, the service runs from George Square to Queen Street Station, Central Station, and on to popular tourist attractions such as Kelvingrove Art Gallery, the Riverside Museum and The Tall Ship, at Pointhouse Quay.

Keith Shand, Assistant Operations Director at the rapidly growing Garelochhead Coaches, commented: “This is a popular but very demanding route, so we had no hesitation in turning to the Enviro200. Its reputation speaks for itself and the combination of performance and style has gone down well with both passengers and drivers.

“Our new Enviro200 has high-back seats, LED saloon lighting, bonded glazing and seatbelts throughout, all of which helps to create the right ambiance, particularly for visitors to the city. Coupled with the combination of the four-cylinder Cummins engine and Allison gearbox, it is ideal for this busy route and we are delighted by the vehicle’s performance since its recent introduction.”
