First Steps to Making Inverness a More Coach Friendly City

First Steps to Making Inverness a More Coach Friendly City

A new city Coach Park has opened in Inverness which provides secure Coach Parking for touring coach companies.  In welcoming this initiative Mike Smith, BID Manager said “BID has long recognised that group travel is one of the growth areas in tourism.  We have looked at arrangements made for coach operators elsewhere in the UK and this coach park is the start of a series of initiatives offered to improve the services offered to coach operators and their guests.

Working with the Highland Council, the Confederation of Passenger Transport and D&E Coaches, the new park has been established on Longman Drive following a 5 year agreement with the Highland Council. 

Council Convener Jimmy Gray said

The opening of the city coach park is long overdue but nonetheless very welcome indeed. Providing secure overnight parking is so important for the growing number of coach tourism operators, who choose Inverness as a destination. 

Donald Mathieson, Managing Director of D & E Coaches, said: “There has been a long-standing need to provide secure parking for visiting coaches and my company is pleased to have freed up space to accommodate this.
