Wexford Bus has just taken delivery of its first new Volvo B11R 9700 which is being used to transport passengers twice daily to Dublin Airport and the city centre.

The new addition to the predominantly Volvo fleet is very distinctive in its orange, blue and white livery, which helps customers recognise the Wexford Bus vehicle when looking for their pick-up spot, including at the airport.

Brendan Crowley, owner and managing director at Wexford Bus, commented on the deal: “Customers like the look of the B11R 9700 and it is very easy to recognise in its eye-catching paintwork. Wexford Bus has many other Volvo’s on our fleet and their reliability ensures that our customers, in turn, enjoy a reliable and enjoyable service. Importantly, this latest addition is PSVAR compliant and we are making progress in ensuring that all our vehicles will offer the same standards of accessibility for our customers in Ireland, especially at a time when we are growing the business.”

Feedback from the drivers has also been very positive, some of whom have built up many miles behind the Volvo wheel in such coaches as the Volvo 9700 Prestige and now in the B11R 9700 which is clocking up the miles by travelling twice daily with two 330km round trips.

Diarmaid Thompson, Retail Sale Manager Ireland & Northern Ireland for Volvo Bus and Coach, added: “Wexford Bus is a long-established Volvo customer and it’s great to hear that their latest model, which has 53 seats and is 13.1 metres in length, is living up to the high standards that it expects. It’s also encouraging to see that Wexford Bus is looking to expand its fleet as passengers return to coach travel, with destinations like Dublin Airport proving popular with international travel back on the agenda.”
