From a business that started 70 years ago in the small village of Stillington, near York, with just one school bus and one taxi, Morse Coaches has grown into a name synonymous with transport across North Yorkshire, now running a fleet of over 30 modern, stylish vehicles.
The latest to join that line-up is a state-of-the-art 12.8m, 55-seat Euro6 B8R Plaxton Panther with I-Shift transmission. It has three-point safety belts, air conditioning, centre toilet, USB charging points, WiFi, sophisticated DVD, CD and PA systems.
Providing contract services for North Yorkshire County Council, City of York Council, a wide range of public and private schools, and supporting a number of international companies based in the area, there are few locals who do not recognise the Morse brand that has become an integral part of life in the county.
Speaking from the company’s modern HQ, depot and service centre at Sheriff Hutton, near York, Director Andrew Morse commented: “We have been part of the transport landscape here for a long time and I like to think that our reputation is second to none. Our aim is to provide quality, affordable services, whether it be for local authority contracts, excursions of private hires.
“The new Panther is an indication of our commitment to luxury, class leading vehicles that set the pace for the industry and we are delighted to welcome it into our fleet.”
