New 2018 plate Double Decker

We've welcomed another 2018 plate coach to join the Barnes Fleet. This 94 seater double decker coach is one of the first VDL Futura FDD2 in the UK and is by far a keen favourite in our fleet with it's high quality design.

It's also joined the rest of our new coaches by sporting the grey livery colour scheme & it's features include a DVD Player with 4 Viewing Screens, Toilet, Fridge, Hot Drinks Facilities & USB charging sockets at every seat.

Barnes Coaches have now had 4 new coaches on the road in 2018 at a cost of over £1.1 million with at least 1 more to come!
