First in Aberdeen has agreed a long term hire of two new 53-seater Temsa Safari HD touring coaches, with a view to a purchase next year from Arriva Bus & Coach (dealer).
The coaches were on the road in Aberdeen as of September 1. First said this means they are among the first of a select number of ‘61’ plate coaches to enter service in the UK.
Robert White of Arriva Bus & Coach told CBW: “These are the first two to enter service with the new-style Safari body in the UK. They are also fitted with the new Ecolife gearbox. We’ve worked closely with Temsa to match the power unit to the driveline to maximise fuel efficiency.”
Robert also said Safaris are in stock at the Cleckheaton dealership.
