Mellor Delivers Two New Maxima for Dumfries and Galloway Council.
Dumfries and Galloway Council (DGC) have taken ownership of 2 Maxima buses from Mellor Coachcraft. The buses, based on the Iveco Daily 72C17, have been fitted out with 30 seats and a luggage pen with added hand rails and open topped luggage box to provide maximum functionality when transporting school children.
The vehicles have been equipped with a Sentinel Cycle Hotspot which includes sensors, a nearside camera and an audible warning to cyclists. These Maxima have been fully configured with safety in mind with the installation of reversing camera and warning alarm which can be disabled for night time use.
Douglas Kirkpatrick, Transportation Manager for DGC said,
“Dumfries and Galloway Council was delighted to receive their two new 30 seat Maxima’s from Mellor Coachcraft recently. These perfectly sized buses are ideal for our rural area, will be an excellent addition to our fleet and will ensure the safe and reliable transport of school pupils across our rural region for years to come.”
DGC were extremely happy with the quality of customer service they received from Mellor Coachcraft and following further procurement have gone on to order 3 low-floored Strata buses.
