Perth, Scotland, 2020-Jan-16 — /Travel PR News/ — Coach operator Scottish Citylink is offering free travel on its services between Edinburgh and Glasgow this weekend to mark the launch of a new fleet of vehicles on the route.
The award-winning coach provider will offer free travel for customers travelling on the 900 Service between Glasgow and Edinburgh on Saturday 18 January and Sunday 19 January.
To take advantage of the offer, customers must book their travel in advance online by visiting www.citylink.co.uk*
The free travel deal – which is available for single, return or day return tickets – is part of Scottish Citylink’s celebrations to mark the launch of a brand new fleet of vehicles operating on the 900 Service, representing a £7million investment.
The operator has introduced 18 state-of-the-art luxury double deck coaches this month on the Glasgow-Edinburgh route which operates up to every 15minutes, 24 hours a day.
The new coaches have also boosted capacity by 32%, adding more than 2,500 extra seats each day to the route.
The 900 service is delivered jointly on behalf of Scottish Citylink by Stagecoach West Scotland and Parks of Hamilton and this investment delivers a step up in luxury for customers through a series of new interior features to improve comfort and enjoyment of their journey.
The new Plaxton Panorama coaches – built in the UK by Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL) – have 79 seats, with greater comfort levels and more leg room than ever before. On-board amenities include fold-down tables, reading lights, mobile device holders and USB and wireless chargers at every seat.
On the lower deck, seating is provided around two tables with integrated wireless device charging, and the new vehicles also offer improved luggage capacity.
Robert Andrew, Stagecoach Regional Director for Scotland said: “Millions of people use our services between Glasgow and Edinburgh every year and we’re delighted to have launched these fantastic new vehicles which offer greater comfort and style than ever before.
“To help celebrate this investment, and the fact that we are now offering more seats than ever on this route, we decided to offer free travel on the 900 Service this weekend. We hope this offer will benefit those who regularly use our services and encourage some new customers to give coach travel a try.”
Scottish Citylink’s 900 Service operates up to every 15 minutes, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and tickets can be bought via www.citylink.co.uk. Alternatively, customers can pay on board, using cash or contactless payments.
The service has been in operation since 1985 and, in 2017, began operating 24 hours a day, up to every 15 minutes.
