ReadyBus Limited, which is based in Slough in Berkshire, England, has purchased five new Scania coaches for use throughout Europe. The order consists of four 12.8-metre Scania Interlink HD coaches and one 12.1 Scania Touring HD coach. The Interlink models have a K 410 EB4x2 chassis, whereas the Touring model has a K 360 IB4x2 chassis. The coaches features several driver assistance solutions, including adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, an advanced emergency braking system, and a reversing camera. Amenities include 53 half-leather seats, climate control, a hot drinks unit, a washroom, and Bosch audio and video equipment.

“When we were looking to expand the fleet of full-sized coaches, we contacted Scania as we’ve been fans of the company for a number of years and have a good relationship with the team,” said Matt Clayson, director of ReadyBus Limited, in a press release. “We love the product and the service from the team is always excellent, so it was win-win for us. We discussed what we wanted with Richard Lawrie and we then developed an order of vehicles that would fulfil our needs.”

Maintenance & Connected Services

Scania Heathrow will support ReadyBus Limited with a repair and maintenance programme, a service that comes with every retail Scania coach sale. ReadyBus will have access to Scania’s OnBoard telematics platform, which is free for ten years. This system monitoring driver performance as well as vehicle performance and then delivers weekly reports via email to the customer. ReadyBus also plans to take advantage of Scania technical training in the near future.

In addition to used Scania trucks for sale, you will find a variety of late-model buses—coaches, buses, and mini-buses—for sale on TruckLocator.
