DAF has announced that it will be extending its DAF Transport Efficiency programme into the bus and coach sector. According to the company, the programme aims to further increase efficiency for operators, and to achieve this goal, DAF Components will supply a complete range of reliable and economical PACCAR engines, as well as a comprehensive package of services to ensure maximum vehicle availability.
A key new addition to the DAF Components offering is the DAF LF chassis module as a basis for compact buses.
The chassis, which forms an ideal basis for compact buses with 30 to 40 seats, comes with a wheelbase length of 4.30 to 5.40 metres and with 4.5-litre PACCAR PX-5 four-cylinder and 6.7-litre PACCAR PX-7 six-cylinder engines (Euro 6).
The company claims that the LF chassis module is perfect for building compact school buses or luxurious VIP buses.
Operators of buses or coaches featuring a PACCAR engine can call on the assistance of more than 1,000 DAF service points located across Europe and beyond, of which 200 are specially appointed as ‘DAF Coach & Bus dealers’.
These dealers are located along major routes for passenger travel and are fully equipped to provide services for systems that are specific to buses and coaches, including sanitary facilities and pneumatic equipment. DAF’s International Coach Service is also ready to provide its services 24 hours a day. On top of that, DAF dealers offer repair and maintenance contracts for maximum reassurance before the journey commences
