‘Stunning’ anniversary livery wowed customers
Three Irizar i6 Integral coaches delivered to Hampshire operator Truemans Coaches have proven a hit with customers… and local operators.
“We had them liveried to celebrate our 60th anniversary,” says Managing Director Richard Trueman. “We were very pleased with the livery – it’s stunning and not only have customers remarked on it, so have a couple of local operators we know.”
The 12.9-metre 53-seat two-axle touring coaches have all the usual Irizar UK refinements including drinks machine, toilet, twin-screen DVD system, seatback tables and footrests. Truemans specified the half-leather ‘PB’ seats as an upgrade.
The driver has a dash-mounted fridge and the benefit of a reversing camera to help reduce collision damage. Truemans – based in Ash Vale – runs a broad range of work with its fleet of 13 coaches, including its own tours and day excursions, private and corporate hire and some school transport.
“Our drivers love the coaches, too. Some customers find the seating position – slightly higher than on some of our other tourers – a little unusual but then find that they can reach the overhead lockers much better,” said Richard.
