Skills Coaches Wins Big Contract

Skills Coaches is a well known name across Nottingham for it's day trips and coach holidays but now the operator is to take on additional work for National Express.

As part of a continuing expansion of the Bulwell-based coach company, they are about to create 50 new jobs following a win of 17 coach services.

Skills has just won a five-year contract with National Express to run 17 franchised coach services, known in the trade as the M1 corridor routes, including those from Bradford to Southsea (the 310), Bradford to Heathrow (the 240) and Derby to London (the 440), plus 14 others.

It is a big contract for Skills and they are buying 21 state-of-the-art coaches which will be fitted with leather seats, Wi-Fi and super-quiet engines.

All the coaches will have advanced data transmission, collision avoidance and lane-drift warning technology as well as CCTV and DriveCam that records "cash for crash" and other spurious incidents.
