New Scania Irizar Century Club for Richard Taylor Travel

Richard Taylor Travel has taken delivery of its fourth Scania vehicle, a Scania Irizar Century Club, which now joins the two Scania Irizar PBs and a Scania Irizar Century Club already in service with the Hitchin, Hertfordshire-based company.

Supplied by Scania (Great Britain) Limited, the new addition to the Richard Taylor Travel fleet is a 12-metre overall length model with 49 seats, full climate control and a toilet.  The vehicle's Euro 5 Scania 360 horsepower engine features Scania's additive-free EGR system.

"In addition to the vehicle itself, we are extremely impressed with the service provided by Scania in general," comments Richard Taylor.  "This includes aftersales support and  Scania Assistance, which gives us great peace of mind as we know they are always there should we ever need their services."

Richard Taylor Travel is a family run business.  Formed in May 1995 with a single second hand coach, the fleet has grown to 15 vehicles ranging from 16 seater minibuses to a 57 seat coach.  The company's work includes school and railway contracts, private hire and operating for a number of well known national tour operators.
