Tri-Axle Coaches - Summer 2022

Tri-Axle Coaches

Despite advising coach and tour operators in advance of travel, we occasionally have issues with tri axle coaches. The issue is that they are unable to embark or disembark onto or from a small ferry due to there being loss of traction from the centre drive axle when traversing the slip/vessel ramp onto/off the vessel.

Note - this issue only affects some small ferries on the following routes:

  • Ardmhor - Eriskay
  • Tobermory - Kilchoan
  • Tayinloan - Gigha
  • Tarbert - Portavadie
  • Largs - Cumbrae (on only the smaller of the two ferries that operate the route)

 If you would like to discuss any of the above content, our senior manager responsible for coach customers can be contacted at:
