Harris on show at premier UK coach and bus show

This week Coach and Bus UK 2019, the premier showcase for the coach and bus industry in the UK and Ireland, kicked off at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham. 

Harris Group showcased a record 10+ vehicles including smaller coaches like the all-new Crusader built on the Iveco Daily chassis, a Higer Super 9 rear-engined midi coach, an AOS Visigo midi coach, and the Crusader front-engined mini coach and minibus range.

Coach & Bus UK is a magnet for all the UK and Ireland’s major coach and bus operators including Bus Eireann, Cardiff Bus, City Sightseeing, Dublin Bus, Eirebus, Megabus, Metroline, Nottingham City Transport, Oxford Bus Company, RATP Dev, Reading Buses, Scottish Citylink, Stagecoach, and Transdev are among the attendees who attended to see all the latest new products and vehicles. 

Harris Group was one of more than 180 exhibitors representing every link of the supply chain. The interactive exhibition booth, with popcorn and screens to watch the Rugby World Cup, promised creative innovations, new technologies, and incredible value as attendees could explore the new vehicles.

This event also launched the Crusader brand and range of vehicles and gave a sneak preview of the Exodus FRV, both developed for the UK and Irish market.

The Crusader range of luxury midi coaches is among the newest and most exciting additions to the Harris Group family: unparalleled value for money, unbeatable driver and passenger comfort and fully VAT 71 approved.

The Exodus FRV (Funeral Removal Vehicle) is the product of in-house innovation and demonstrates  how mass transportation technology can be used for a final journey – not only for the deceased but also for mourners – with benefits not only to families but to the funeral industry.

Exodus FRV reduces the size of the cortege maximising efficiency and increasing operating margins, as well as offering a more environmentally friendly transport option.
