New 72 Seater Coach

New 72 Seater Coach

The first of three new 67 plate vehicles Barnes are putting on the road 1st Sept is a 72 seat Volvo Sunsundegui SB3.

Barnes have operated dozens of Volvos over the years but this is the first with a Sunsundegui body.

The interior is set up with a 3 + 2 seat formation and is for school age children only (don’t worry, there is room for a few teachers/adults!).

Safety is always paramount and this coach comes with 3-point seat belts plus Automatic Braking and Lane Assist technology. The coach is also fully air conditioned, as is all of our fleet.

If you have a school age group looking for short or long journeys, weekdays or weekends then please contact us as we are already quoting on this vehicle.
