The new coaches will be put to good use travelling along the Great Barrier Reef drive between Cairns and Port Douglas.

Quicksilver managing director Tony Baker says he is pleased that the organisation is able to offer its customers the comfort and safety of riding in these brand new coaches.

"After the success of our first Volvo coach in early 2016 a second coach was commissioned and has commenced transferring our Quicksilver reef customers along one of Australia’s most scenic drives in a vehicle that brings a new standard of quality, safety and technology to the region," he says.

The Volvo-Marcopolo B7R's have the highest possible current exhaust emission controls.  By European Emission Standards, it’s an  enhanced environmentally friendly vehicle (EEV) and exceeds current standards in Australia.

"We will continue to invest in our products and our two sleek Volvo Marcopolo coaches highlighting our commitment to the comfort of our passengers and also ensuring we continue to lead in all aspects of environmental sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint," Baker says.

"We are pleased to continue to invest in our coach fleet bringing the highest standards of emission control."

"This significant investment for our new coaches along with new branded livery is another welcome addition to our current fleet of now 12 coaches."

The coach exceeds the required safety standards rating for coaches and is fitted with reversing cameras and sensors, security and forward facing cameras and LED lighting inside and out.
