Last year Scottish Citylink launched a new luxury express coach service, between several Scottish cities. The „Gold’ service offers travellers the chance to enjoy a first class rail-style journey at economy prices. This offer is really very interesting and attractive - read the following text.
Fast, state-of the art air-conditioned coaches match journey times by train, offer bargain fares from just £4*, as well as free wi-fi and at-seat refreshments.
The Citylink Gold services link Glasgow-Aberdeen and Glasgow-Aviemore-Inverness with six services a day on each route.
The 14-metre luxury coaches, which can carry 54 passengers, are equipped with leather seats, mahogany table trays, a servery and toilet. They also feature some of the greenest engines in Europe with low carbon emissions.
Coach attendants give passengers the first-class at-seat rail-style service, providing free hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, snacks and fresh fruit.
Journey times between Glasgow and Aberdeen are less than two hours and 40minutes, while services between Inverness and Glasgow take as little as three hours and 23minutes.
Citylink Gold is the latest offering from Scottish Citylink - a joint venture between Stagecoach and international transport group ComfortDelGro.
Launching the services, Stagecoach Group Chief Executive Brian Souter said: “We are offering a fast, first-class rail-style express coach service at economy prices. With such a great package, it really makes no sense to take the car and it really marks a new era for coach travel.”
Jaspal Singh, CEO of ComfortDelGro UK and Ireland, added: “Citylink Gold will provide passengers with more than just a journey it’s a great value, comfortable and modern service which I hope will encourage more people to choose coach travel as their preferred mode of transport.”
The new Citylink Gold brand also has its own tartan, which was designed and manufactured by The House of Edgar, based in Perth.
