Image description

The image shows the inside of a car larger than a bus, called a coach, viewed from above, facing left.

The coach is a massive car, that can also have a floor, and which is holding a high level of comfort due to its utilities, required for the optimal experience of the passengers, during a trip or a tour over a very long distance.

The outside shell of the car, also called the car body, it is not presented here, hence the inside is shown.

Next to the passenger door, in the middle, and the front door, near the driver’s side, there are stairs, rendered by texture of horizontal and parallel lines.

On coach floor are placed, on two rows, sixty four comfortable seats with backrest, along with the driver’s, separated by a long and narrow corridor and highlighted by embossed tiny squares.

The passenger seats are arranged from right, where the backside is, to the left or front, as follows: the last row includes five seats along the side of the bus, then the corridor starts to divides the top row, made of double seats, from the bottom row, which this is interrupted in the middle, by the central staircase.

The driver’s seat is at the top left, and in front of it there is the steering wheel of the car, marked as an embossed circle.

Additional information

The coach is a vehicle designed for long-distance transportation of passengers. It has a length of 12 meters and a seating capacity of 56.

Coaches are high floor vehicles, which usually have a single narrow passenger door in the center, and a separate luggage hold mounted below the passenger compartment. In contrast to transit buses, motor coaches typically feature a forward-facing seating (the guide seat), with no provision for standing and stopping less often. The coaches are equipped with air conditioning, folding chairs, seat belts, wheelchair lifts for access. In addition to the amenities listed, some coaches may include a toilet, refrigerator and TV.

Coaches are often used for tourism purposes, journeys and group trips. Coach travel is the safest form of road transport, ten times safer than traveling by private car. In addition, the coach offers more space for luggage and more comfort than the bus, which makes the longer route less stressful.

The modern coaches originate from horse drawn carriages, which first appeared in the Hungarian town ,,Kocs” (hence the English “coach”), in the 15th century. One of the earliest motorised vehicles was the charabanc (a type of horse-drawn vehicle), which was used for short journeys and excursions until the early years of the 20th century. The first ,,motor coaches” were purchased by operators of those horse-drawn vehicles in the early 20th century by operators such as Royal Blue Coach Services, who purchased their first charabanc in 1913 and were running to conduct 72 coaches by 1926.
