20 new Strata’s coming soon to McGill’s fleet

Bus Company Orders £2m of New Vehicles

We have placed an order for twenty new Strata buses from Rochdale-based Mellor Coachcraft, at this year’s Coach and Bus UK event.

McGill’s previously ordered two Stata’s in 2016, which were the first from the Mellor production line to go into commercial use in the UK.

The 20 new vehicles are set to be deployed on a range of routes throughout Renfrewshire and Inverclyde, including McGill’s up and coming new DRT service in Upper Skelmorlie; where customers can book a bus to & from their door.

Ralph Roberts, McGill’s Managing Director said:
"We have been evaluating two Mellor Stratas of the same specification since the vehicle’s launch last year and found they ‘tick all the right boxes’ for us in terms of fuel economy, durability, build quality, and the level of door-to-door support we receive from Mellor.

"The 21 seat, DDA-compliant, low emission vehicles bring a traditional big bus feel to a small bus, and our customers like the look of the interior facilities along with the smooth ride. The first 10 will be rolled out throughout December 2017 and January 2018, and the rest shortly after. We’re positive our customers will enjoy a first-class experience when travelling on these new buses.”
