Belle Vue Invests £6 Million in FlixBus Partnership Expansion

Belle Vue Manchester has announced an investment of 6 million GBP into new vehicles as part of its ever-expanding partnership with FlixBus.

The company received a delivery of five brand-new 53-seater Yutong GT12 coaches, with a further 18 set to be delivered over the next year.

Plans are currently set in place to add trips to and from Newcastle, York, Leicester and Birmingham

The coaches, which are supplied through UK distributor Pelican Bus + Coach and decorated with FlixBus livery, feature a Bosch entertainment system, USB charging points, power sockets, mood lighting, free wi-fi and live coach tracking for passengers.

Belle Vue Managing Director Phil Hitchen said:

“We’ve had Yutong vehicles in our fleet for a number of years and have found that they perform very well. As well as being a reliable product, the GT12 models have industry-leading technology on board and are popular with our passengers. “We see this model, backed by the excellent Pelican after-sales and support system, as the ideal partnership to take our fleet expansion programme forward, and we are excited to be expanding our FlixBus offering with additional frequencies and new services.

“Our trip to China for the signing ceremony was a memorable experience and we were looked after very well from start to finish.”

With a partnership beginning in February 2023, the companies operate daily express services between Manchester and a range of cities in both the North and Midlands, such as York, Bradford, Leeds, Newcastle, Sheffield, Stoke, Birmingham, Leicester and Nottingham.
