PRESS RELEASE Ballincollig Coaches of Co Cork have just taken delivery of two Volvo B7R Sunsundeguis. Purchased as part of a programme of fleet modernisation, the new coaches will be used for touring throughout Ireland and also into Scotland. The family run firm had not bought Volvo for some years but were impressed by the B7R/ Sunsundegui combination. “It’s very stylish looking so helps to create the right impression; it’s very comfortable; and there’s great luggage space – all of which is perfect for our requirements,” explained Managing Director, Donal O’Callaghan. “Add to that the fact that the Euro/Sterling rate is so favourable to us at the moment, there was no excuse not to buy!” Specified with Volvo’s D7C 7.1 litre common rail fuel injection engine rated at 290hp, combined with a ZF six-speed gearbox, the 53 seat coaches feature full double glazing, air conditioning, DVD player and reversing camera.
Ballincollig plan to use them on incoming tours which make up a large part of their business. “We shall be very busy over the next few months, particularly with French and American students requiring sightseeing tours, and these coaches really are ideal for the task,” said Donal.
Established 20 years ago, Ballincollig’s 15-strong fleet ranges from six seaters to full size executive coaches. The company runs its own programme of two to three day short breaks and seven to ten day tours. In addition, a variety of specialist breaks are arranged for incoming tourists, ranging from historic sightseeting and pilgrimage tours to short breaks for fishing, golf, gardening and art enthusiasts.

Buslovers Demostracion del Programa Electronico de Estabilidad (ESP) de Volvo Buses, es un elemento de seguridad que combina el ABS (Antilock Brake System / Sistema Antibloqueo de Frenado) y el control de tracción (en algunos vehiculos también se interviene sobre la dirección) para mantener el vehículo estable cuando éste se aproxima sus límites, tratando de evitar que se produzca desplazamientos no deseados principalmente debidos a la inercia o fuerzas laterales. Esto puede suceder por ejemplo al tomar una curva pronunciada demasiado rápido o al hacer un movimiento de volante brusco y/o sobre mojado. Para efectuar tales correcciones el sistema actúa individualmente sobre cada rueda, permitiendo el giro o frenando aquella o aquellas que sean necesarias para mentener la trayectoria correcta que mantenga el vehículo en la carretera.

New Scania Higer A30 Buses EBS public transportation R-Net BizzLiner (Egged Group) ENG: Some of the brand new Scania buses with Chinese Higer body are to see on train station Holendrecht in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The Scania Higer A30 buses are being used for R-Net Bizzliner routes, a new public transport concept with the great comfort of these touringcars. These buses do have a wheelchair elevator.
