Falcon Coaches, based in Byfleet in Surrey, has introduced five Enviro200s to its fleet of 32 vehicles. The new single-deck buses are 8.9m-long 30-seat models powered by a Cummins ISB4.5 litre engine, coupled with Allison S2100 transmissions.
Falcon Coaches specialises in school contracts, corporate coach hire and the provision of local bus services. The new vehicles have gone into service on its flagship Route 461, which runs between Addlestone and Kingston-upon-Thames, via Weighbridge, Walton-on-Thames, Molesey and Hampton Court.
“This is a prestige commercial route and, as a result, we wanted state-of-the-art, market leading vehicles, hence the introduction of the new Enviro200s, all of which have wi-fi connectivity and next-stop notification screens,” says Richard Telling, managing director, Falcon Coaches. “In addition, they set the pace in terms of low emissions and meet the new ULEZ regulations that will be introduced shortly.”
