Are you looking to hire a vehicle for group transport but unsure of the best option available to you? There are several points you will have to consider when arranging the transport for your day out. This will include the size of your travelling party and reason behind your journey.

Here is a summary of some of the key differences between hiring a double decker bus compared to that of a coach.

The Differences Between a Double Decker Bus & Coach

There’s no question that the biggest difference between these transport options is in size. A double decker bus is capable of holding more passengers than a coach. For instance, the Maghull Coaches fleet of double decker buses have a capacity of 65 to 70. In comparison, our standard coach can only carry up to 49 people. A double decker bus is the ideal option to choose for larger group movements than that of a coach.

Double decker buses are best suited for local days trips. Buses are popular among schools, youth groups, private groups and corporate transfers. With the opportunity to fit more on board, you will save costs and experience a lively atmosphere. The upstairs area provides increased height, offering greater views than coaches. Double deckers are typically more spacious and include wheelchair access.

Coaches are longer and more confined than buses. They usually exude an executive style and are ideal where luxury travel is concerned. The Maghull Coaches standard coach includes an on-board toilet as well as a music and announcement system.

Regardless of your vehicle choice, the Maghull Coaches range of double decker buses and coaches include full seatbelts to ensure maximum safety for each passenger. All our drivers have experience and know the best routes to get you to your destination. Every driver is DBS checked and hold appropriate licenses which get checked every 6 months.
