Swift Update

Regular contributor Joe Leathers Watson provides the latest information on Swift Taxis' Great Yarmouth fleet

Two coaches at Swift's Southtown Road site have now had the dreaded VOR sign placed in their front windscreen

The VOR sign is displayed in a bus by either the company or VOSA (now DVSA) because it's either not
Recently available for disposal 111 P109WJO Swift Albatross also has a VOR
roadworthy or not seen as financially viable to repair. The traditional understanding is that vehicle is not available for work due to an unscheduled mechanical failure

The first vehicle affected is Plaxton Premiere bodied Volvo B10M N962DWJ which Swift acquired from National Holidays in August 2006

The other is blue liveried P109WJO currently advertised for sale by Swift. Accordingly its sale price has reduced from £9,995 to £6,995. The coach was purchased from Woodside Motors of Southey Green in Surrey during July 2007

Joe has supplied photos of the two vehicles at Swift's Southtown yard yesterday. My thanks to Joe for his report and photos
