Buses in Chard

A visit to Chard in Somerset gave an opportunity to spot one of two Volvo B8RLE's with MCV Evolution bodywork recently acquired by South West Coaches.

The Yeovil based company have won new services Yeovil, Chard and Crewkerne together with school and college contracts.
The new vehicles have been supplied by Volvo Retail Bus and Coach and are powered by Volvo D8K 280hp 6 cylinder 7.7 litre Euro 6 engine coupled to a ZF EcoLife 6AP12 B six speed gearbox.

Other routes passing through Chard are run by Stagecoach and 'Somerset' branded Buses.
