“We are an ambitious company always looking for the best value for our clients. This latest investment will enable us to expand our availability to a growing industry by capitalising on the support provided by HSBC and the Development Bank of Wales.”
Established in 2004, Coastline Coaches is run by Director Wendy Parker and Transport Manager Les Peake. With 30 employees, they have 24 vehicles in their fleet and 14 owner drivers.
Coastline Coaches has taken delivery of two new service buses as it prepares to begin two new service bus contracts with Denbighshire County Council. Loans totaling £100,000 from the Development Bank of Wales and HSBC will enable the family-run business to upgrade its depot in Fford Las, Rhyl to accommodate the new vehicles and further develop its private hire, taxi and coach tour services.
The two new Optare buses are both DDA approved and wheelchair accessible. They will service the 55 and X5 routes which run between Ruthin, Corwen, Llangollen and Wrexham, along with route 40 which includes the 61 and 56 routes from Denbigh to Rhyl.
