Yup and no maintenance contracts with mercedes either. They do most of their maintenance in house


Where do they get the money from to buy them, is their owner really that loaded?

I’d say a quick report from solocheck for about €3/4 will tell us the company is in the height of debt.

There's a few free sites to get that kind of info

Citi Bus has 3.2m of assets and Last Bus 5.5m of assets as of September 2016, so it's quite possible that they do own the Tourismos up until 2016 - there is no more recent accounts so impossible to tell about the 2017 and 2018 ones.

However the accounts for Last Bus show a bank overdraft and long term loan of approx €3m and total liabilities of approx €5m, a debt to Capital ratio of 90% and a working capital of minus 2m.

Bear in mind these are almost 18 months out of date now though.

The coach on fire at UL last week was dublin coach

there have been previous incidents with this operator of coach fires and has there not been one of a large part of the coach falling on the road

these issues are not speculation.

if such incidents happened to a plane a train or a ferry there would be an investigation by a state body.

will there be a similar investigation of coach related incidents by RSA?

Can anybody give us a rundown on vehicle fires on the fleet?

Two buses dumped in Corcoran's Portlaoise suffering from fires. When did these take place?
