Luxury express coach service wins car and train users in Scotland
A luxury express coach service, Scottish Citylink’s Gold service, has carried more than 130,000 passengers on its up-market operation between Glasgow and Aberdeen and Inverness, since its launch last year. Scottish Citylink says that 36 per cent of customers previously used their cars, while 31 per cent used to travel by train.
Scottish Citylink managing director Bob Montgomery says: “Citylink Gold has really taken off and has been particularly popular with commuters and business travellers, who love the fast journey times, at-seat refreshments and competitive fares. Instead of the stress and rising cost of going by car, people are being attracted by the convenient, stress-free journey and free wi-fi, which means they relax or can catch up on work on the coach.”
With its 54 leather-trimmed seats and fares starting from £4, the Citylink Gold provides
a fast, first-class express coach service at economy prices. Customer service hosts provide passengers with first-class rail-style service, with free hot and cold drinks, sandwiches and snacks, including scones with jam for early morning travellers.
