Plaxton Cheetahs to help City Circle to cut operating costs 26 August 2011

London and Edinburgh coach operator City Circle has taken delivery of three more Plaxton Cheetah small coaches, the trio joining two vehicles acquired last year.

"Until last year we ran only full-size coaches," explains City Circle managing director Neil Pegg. "The Cheetahs showed us that there is a demand for high-quality coaches from smaller groups, so we decided to invest in another three this year.

"The Cheetahs bring us real benefits, in terms of lower operational costs," continues Pegg. "It is much more cost-effective to take a small group in a fuel-efficient small coach than to carry them in a full-size vehicle."

City Circle operates 41 coaches and maintains a high level of investment, which, for Pegg, means that none of its vehicles are more than three years old.

"Last year's Cheetahs proved to be valuable additions to our fleet, and we had no hesitation in placing a repeat order with Plaxton," explains Pegg.
