This is not our every day A1 Passenger!

This is not our every day A1 Passenger!

This morning whilst our Driver Ronnie was outside doing his exterior walk round safety check of his double decker coach, he come back to do the interior checks only to find a visitor inside his bus waiting on him. Not your everyday passenger on our A1 buses but it sure did put a smile on everyone's face. 

Thanks to our driver Tony for providing us with these pictures. This really did make our day at A1 Coaches.

Separating the best from the Rest in the Coach Hire Industry

There are many Minibus and Coach Operators in the surrounding areas of Fife, Scotland. 

Particularly in Edinburgh. Every Minibus and Coach operator does business differently... If all the companies operated the same there would be no competition or anything that would differentiate each individual company.

What makes A1 Minibus and Coach Services LTD that one step in front of the rest? 

Well, let me explain, Apart from we put our heart and soul into operating the company we are a process based company. This means we have stucture and we have valuable staff members following proceedure noted in our operations manual.

I am very proud and keen to explain as I think it is great for our customer, suppliers and lenders get insight into our operations. This is all the hard work than no one ever sees.

We plan and monitor operations very carefully. However, there is always room for improvement (That is my motto!) but we have worked really hard to make A1 Minibus and Coach Services LTD a professional/competent operating company providing a service to our customers that is second to none!.
