North Dorset Travel, a family-run business based in Holton Heath, Poole, and with an amazing 96 years of history in the transport sector has added a 12.8m, 53-seat Plaxton Panther to its fleet of luxury coaches.

It joins an extensive line-up of modern, air-conditioned vehicles catering for all aspects of travel in Dorset, while also reaching across the UK and into Continental Europe.

Managing Director Richard Green commented: “We pride ourselves in running a   fleet of high specification vehicles that enhance the passenger experience and encourage repeat business. That strategy has proved to be a winner for the best   part of a century and the new Panther will further endorse our credentials as a coach hire business that goes the extra mile in terms of providing style, comfort and tailor-made solutions.

“Our new coach, a former Plaxton demonstrator, has air conditioning throughout, WC and servery, reversing cameras, DVD monitors, three-point safety belts and USB charging points at every seat. The Panther’s reputation for reliability and fuel economy speaks for itself but, in addition, its flexibility is a great bonus. It can tackle virtually any job, from corporate work to group outings, educational events and touring holidays.”

North Dorset’s new Panther is on a Volvo B8R with I-Shift automated manual transmission.
