Trial period for Hybrid Coach

Trial period for Hybrid Coach

We're privileged to be trialing one of the new Irizar i4H Hybrid Coaches for a month!

These Hybrid coaches are the first of their kind in the UK and can impressively save over 20% on fuel, meaning reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and improvements in local air quality without having to compromise on coach comfort, convenience or safety.

Exciting times ahead... Our future may be greener than ever!

We're Hiring! - Coach Driver Apprenticeships

We're Hiring! - Coach Driver Apprenticeships
Exciting News - We're hiring! 

We're thrilled to announce we will be running our coach driver apprenticeship scheme again starting from May 2019.

Being such a great success with last years apprenticeships, we're keen to kick start more coach driver careers!

There's no age limit, so whether your 17 & you've just passed your driving test, or over 50 wanting a new career path this may be the job for you!

Our very own Trevor (Who works in our coach hire department as well) has recently obtained his coach license through our apprenticeship programme and here is what he had to say about his experience...

"I have really enjoyed doing my Apprenticeship with Barnes Coaches, I have always wanted to drive a coach and with the support and training received from Matt at Barnes Coaches and Kevin at Somax, I have now passed my test! If I had an troubles, the support I received from Dave (our trainer) was 2nd to none. Thank you Barnes Coaches for running the apprentice scheme."
