Four new state-of-the-art coaches for Ulsterbus Tours

8 January 2019

The luxury Volvo B11R 9700 coaches will be used for international touring work to Europe while the B11R Jonckheere coaches will primarily be used for private hire; local tours and sports fixtures.

Kay Sharkey, Translink Travel Centre Manager, said: “We are pleased to once again work in partnership with Volvo for the supply of these new state-of-the-art coaches, which provide the latest standards in comfort and quality”.

“Volvo were able to offer vehicles to meet our specifications. As we already operate a sizeable number of Volvos in our fleet, we were already familiar with the build quality, dependability and impressive fuel economy. We also rely on the excellent service provided by our dealer, Dennisons, throughout Northern Ireland.” 

The B11R 9700s are tri-axle 13 metre coaches and the B11R JHV2s are 12.57 metre two axle vehicles. All have 53 seats and come with onboard toilets. 

Richard Mann, Volvo Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager, added: “Translink has been a loyal Volvo customer for many years and we’re pleased that they’ve returned to us once again for their latest order.  

“We have every confidence that they will continue to enjoy the reliability and fuel efficiency they expect from our vehicles and look forward to working with them again in the future.”

Translink is Northern Ireland’s main public transport provider, but these coaches will operate under its Ulsterbus Tours brand, which focuses on UK and European tours and private hire.
