McGinley Coach Travel stays loyal to Volvo for fleet expansion

Much in the media spotlight recently, family owned McGinley Coach Travel of Letterkenny, has once again taken delivery of a new Volvo B11R Euro 6 as the latest addition to its 20-unit strong vehicle fleet.

On the purchase, James McGinley, Owner & Director of McGinley Coach Travel, said: “We’ve been very impressed with the quality of the Volvo product over the years, in particular the passenger safety features and fuel efficiency we have experienced, so had no hesitation with this repeat purchase.”

The 53 seat, Jonckheere bodied coach will be used on McGinley’s tour programme as well as for express coach services. For the comfort and convenience of passengers, the vehicle has been specified and delivered with a sunken on-board toilet.

“Customers want a high standard specification from their operator, so it was important to purchase a vehicle that would continue to meet the expectations of our passengers,” added James. “As a company, we are long-standing Volvo fans and in addition to the fuel savings, we love the driveability, reliability and back-up service via Irish Commercials in Dublin and Dennison Commercials in Ballyclare, which is also important to us from a business point of view.”

The B11R comes with Volvo Driver Support System (DSS) as standard and includes AEBS (forward collision warning and advanced emergency braking systems), LKS (lane keeping support) and ACC (adaptive cruise control).
