Family-owed Shiel Buses, which is based I Fort William ad has been operating in the Scottish Highlands for the past 40 years, has added an Enviro200 to its growing fleet operating throughout West Lochaber.
The new single-deck bus is a 9.7m 34-seat model, powered by a Cummins four-cylinder engine and Allison transmission. It has leather seats, safety belts, CCTV cameras, wood-effect flooring, USB portals at every seat and will operate on the company’s routes and school services running between Fort William and the Mallaig, Morvern and Ardnamurchan Peninsula.
“We have steadily grown our reputation over the years, secured more routes and contract services, and progressively expanded our fleet,” says director David McGillivray. “We are now an established part of the transport landscape in the Scottish Highlands but to stay in that position we need to remain focused, provide quality services and take nothing for granted.
“It is important too that we build on working relationships, such as the one we enjoy with ADL. The Enviro200 is an exceptional vehicle that combines style with comfort and performance. It also handles well on the road, which is a critical factor, particularly in an environment where road and weather conditions can change rapidly.”
