04 April 2024 #Bus and Coach

Tanat Valley Coaches has taken delivery of a 10.8m Volvo B8RLE MCV eVoRa single decker bus and a 9.7m Alexander Dennis Enviro200 midi-bus from Asset Alliance Group’s new rental offering.

Supplied on three-year rental agreements, the vehicles will be deployed on service routes around Shropshire and Mid-Wales and used for school transport contracts.

The 38-seat Volvo bus will deliver a busy programme of services, including an Oswestry to Shrewsbury route, whilst the 34-seat Alexander Dennis bus will be utilised for a mix of work including school transport.

Fitted with Euro-6 engines, both vehicles are Low Emission Bus certified.

The new arrivals join a fleet of 58 buses and coaches at the family-run business and are each expected to clock up more than 100,000 km per year.

Established in 1921, Tanat Valley Coaches operates regular services between Oswestry, Llanfyllin, Llanrhaeadr, Llangynog, Tregynon, Welshpool, Newtown, Shrewsbury and Montgomery, and also provides a range of vehicles for private hire, from mini-buses and midi-buses to luxury coaches.

Chris Chadd, Managing Director of Tanat Valley Coaches, said: “The new additions to our fleet from Asset Alliance Group’s bus rental stock will allow us to continue to provide a reliable service for thousands of passengers across the region.

“Crucially, they come with a warranty that gives us peace of mind if we ever have any problems.

“What’s so impressive about the bus rental scheme is the flexibility offered in the length of contracts and the fact you can access a wide variety of ready for use vehicles but with none of the financial and operational responsibilities of ownership.”
