Stagecoach West celebrates 25 years of silver service

Gloucestershire’s leading bus service provider is celebrating a milestone 25 years of service with the launch of two special silver buses.

Stagecoach West is celebrating a milestone 25 years of providing bus services in the area by giving two if its double deckers a special silver anniversary makeover.

The new eye-catching livery, in sparkling silver, blue and red, includes the slogan ‘Celebrating 25 years of Stagecoach West’ and can be seen on the two special buses on routes in the Gloucester and Swindon areas.

Over the last quarter of a century Stagecoach West has grown to operate 300 buses throughout Gloucestershire and the surrounding counties, and continues to adapt to an ever-changing public transport landscape.

Stagecoach West’s Managing Director Rupert Cox said: ‘It has been an exciting 25 years for our company and during that time we have seen Stagecoach West grow and the level of service we provide our customers continue to rise.

‘We now operate buses that are much more environmentally friendly. We have invested heavily in our latest fleet of Stagecoach Gold buses which cost £250,000 each and have the latest engine technology which means a reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions and other particulates by 90 per cent compared to the buses they are replacing.

‘We have introduced many other features on our buses for the comfort and convenience of our customers. These include low floor bus access for wheelchairs and buggies, smart card and contactless ticketing and real time bus information.’

Stagecoach West’s latest developments include the launch of the Arle Court Park and Ride in Cheltenham, as well as forming an integral part of Gloucester’s new £7.5m Transport Hub which opened in October 2018.
