Swiss touring coach travel company “Buchard Voyages” has added four new Setra touring coaches to its fleet. The two TopClass S 516 HDH as well as the ComfortClass S 515 HD and S 511 HD are first class in terms of safety and comfort. Among other features, the vehicles have 360-degree cameras and Active Drive Assist 2 on board, a feature that keeps the vehicles in the required position within the lane and thus enables partially automated driving over all speed ranges. The entertainment system is unique and makes personalized content, such as films, music and games accessible to every seat via a server.
Founded by Olga and Albert Buchard in 1953, François Buchard is the family's third generation of managers at the enterprise. Headquartered in Leytron and with sites in Ecuvillens and Aubonne, Buchard is the leading touring coach travel company in the French-speaking part of Switzerland, also know as “Suisse romande”. The Postauto partner mainly uses the new Setra touring coaches for circular routes where the company employs a 120-strong workforce, runs its own workshop, and currently has 20 Setra buses and touring coaches in operation.
