Explore our coaches

We've made significant changes to our coaches in recent years to make sure that we're delivering the highest quality of service possible to you - wherever you go and whenever you travel.

  • Gear Box - Our automatic ZF 6HP602C gear box is durable and very efficient; helping to bring you a smoother journey.
  • Gear Box: Seats - There are up to 49 high-quality Fainsa Gala seats in each one of our coaches. A guarantee of comfort every time you travel.
  • Chassis - The Scania K 340 chassis is durable and well-proven, and it is a much-recognised piece of engineering on the UK's roads.
  • Axles - The two axles on this coach are made of stern stuff indeed. The front axle is called upon to carry up to 7,500kg, and the rear carries up to 12,000kg.
  • Luggage capacity - At 12 cubic metres, the luggage capacity on a National Express coach is a big old space. Just what our customers need when getting from A to B with their bags in tow.
  • Wheels - These giant Alcoa Durabrite lightweight wheels grace the roads up and down the country.
  • Security -  This is one of our most important concerns. That's why we have CCTV that monitors the luggage bay when the coach is stationary.
  • Size - Length: 12,600 milimetres. Width: 2,550 milimetres. Height: 3690 milimetres.

Environmental benefits

Travelling by coach is one of the most environmentally-friendly forms of transport, giving out seven times fewer CO2 emissions than a car - making it a much better option for the environment as well as your wallet!

Unscheduled stops

In order to keep our coaches running to their schedule, we do not make unscheduled stops on the majority of our services.

We do provide rest breaks on longer journeys, especially overnight services and services between England and Scotland.

Disabled access

Creating a safe and comfortable journey for all our passengers is one of our main goals, which is why the majority of our fleet now have a passenger lift at the front entrance of the coach.

If you use a wheelchair or have reduced mobility, please make sure you call us at least 36 hours before travelling so that we can fully assess your travel requirements.

You can also view our Code of Practice for Disabled Customers, or take a look at our Disabled Travellers leaflet for more info.
