Allison shifts comfort up a gear for Stray Travel
Mar 04, 2019
Stray Travel Australia has chosen Allison transmissions for its three new buses providing travelers a more comfortable and relaxing experience.
Byron Bay, Australia: Stray Travel Australia has recently purchased three new Bonluck 40
seat Cooper coaches equipped with Allison T270 R transmissions to deliver a smoother and
quieter travel experience for its customers in addition to being more reliable and economic.
Stray Travel is a ‘hop on-hop off” travel concept servicing Australia’s East Coast from Sydney
to the Sunshine Coast using three Bonluck Coopers with Allison T270R six-speed automatic
transmissions mated with Cummins ISB 207hp Euro 5 spec engines.
According to the managing director of Stray Travel Australia, Neil Geddes, the proven Allison
and Cummins drive-line combination has provided the company with confidence and peace of
mind in purchasing the new Bonluck buses, which were also selected for comfort.
“The Bonlucks have been designed for Australian conditions. They are well built have plenty of
luggage space, and are great value for money, all of which were key factors for us,” said Neal
Geddes. “We are really focused on giving our customers a smoother and better travel
experience and the automatic drive-line is better for this than a manual.
With customer comfort being a top priority in addition to reliability, Stray Travel is maintaining
its competitive-edge by providing premium service at a similar price as the competition.
In addition to the Allison fully automatic transmissions that have proven to be extremely reliable
and cost effective, these new Bonluck Coopers also feature comfortable leather reclining seats
and USB ports in every seat with air conditioning and a very comfortable ride.
