Vehicle Information:


G567 PRM was new to Ribble as fleet number 567.

During the early 2000s, Lothian subsidiary Mac Tours won a number of contract services and bought in 3 Mercedes Minibuses to operate them, including this one which was numbered 27. For a while it carried dateless registration XIL 1483.

The Mercedes buses were replaced in 2008 by new Optare Solos, at which point this bus was sold to Pringle of Bearsden to operate the 4B (bikes, boats, boots, bus) service up Loch Lomondside from Glasgow, towing a bike trailer.

When this stopped at the end of 2010, G567 PRM entered retirement. It still wears the Loch Lomond 4B lettering on Mac Tours's basic livery.
