Australia’s newest coaches will be en-route from Perth to the south-west this month, featuring wi-fi internet access, a multi-channel entertainment system and USB re-charge ports for iPods and other electronic devices.

South West Coach Lines, part of Veolia Transport Australasia, will be introducing three new coaches to welcome an era of luxury coach travel to complement its existing charter, express and school services.

The coaches are built on Mercedes Benz O 500RF three-axle luxury touring coach chassis and feature a Coach Design’s body.

Customers will enjoy plush Italian leather seats, chilled bottle water, stylish fibreglass restroom and aircraft-style overhead lockers for safe and convenient storage on board.

The modern external design also showcases the group’s new branding for the first time.

Terry Scott, Veolia Transport WA Managing Director, says the new coaches build upon the innovative, safe and reliable foundations of the business.

"These state-of-the-art coaches have been designed to include the latest technology and modern comforts. These additions to our fleet highlight our commitment to being the leading provider of transport solutions for our local community and tourists alike," he says.

Corporate high fliers will also take advantage of the new coaches by travelling smarter, using their time wisely with internet access and mobile phone charging points.

Scott Robinson, corporate executive and frequent commuter, conducts a lot of business in Perth and is always trying to work smarter, not harder.

"Travelling by coach and being able to set up a virtual office on the road, enables me to save three hours each time I travel to Perth," he says.

South West Coach Lines operates town bus services, repeat passenger services for school and the public, charter services and express services in and around south-west WA.

The company provides 1,650 services weekly, transports one million passengers around the south-west each year and employs more than 100 staff.
