North Queensland coach company Calypso Coaches has turned to Higer for cheaper coaches.

Calypso Coaches Managing Director Ray Bosnich says Calypso Coaches, which services Cairns, Townsville and Mackay, is in the process of updating its fleet and he is considering buying Higer.

"I'd absolutely buy another Higer, and we are considering replacing the two older model Higers and Higer is top of our list,"
Bosnich says.

Calypso Coaches’ fleet already has a 7.6 metre Munro, a 9.3 metre MidiBoss, a 12.3 metre School Boss, and two luxury 12.3-metre Roadboss VIP models.

Bosnich says a selling point for Calypso is Higer's pricing.

"The pricing was a big factor in purchasing Higer as well as the commitment of its dealers," he says.

Higer buses are manufactured in China using Cummins engines, Allison and ZF transmissions, Meritor Axles and European designed chassis.

The company's product line up starts at six metre buses and ranges up to full 18 metre vehicles.
