Panther sets the pace as Abbey stays on the road to success

Published: 10 Feb 2020

Abbey Coaches, based on the south side of Glasgow and renowned across Central Scotland for quality hire services has taken delivery of a new high specification Plaxton Panther.

It is a 12.8m Euro6 B8R model with I-Shift transmission and has a luxury finish that includes 57 extended seats with leather headrests, centre demountable toilet, fridge, air-conditioning throughout, USB portals for every passenger, sophisticated sound and entertainment systems, real time tracking and telematics, reversing cameras and CCTV.

It joins a fleet of luxury coaches dominated by Plaxton products that support Abbey’s vast array of activities across Scotland and the UK. These range from airport transfers, day trips, extended excursions, custom and bespoke tours to corporate hires, sports events, theatre and show business spectaculars.

Company Director Graeme Walker, who runs the family business along with his mother Christine, commented: “We pride ourselves in offering value for money, quality services that are best-in-class and our long-standing partnerships with central government, local authorities, schools and corporate entities are an endorsement of that strategy.

“To stay at the forefront of the industry however, you also need vehicles that are state-of-the-art, reliable, perform well consistently and have the flexibility to tackle a whole range of jobs. The Panther and the Plaxton range in general, works well for us and has been a crucial part of our success over the past 25 years.”
