Prevost opens B.C. service center

Posted on October 23, 2009

Prevost, a division of Volvo Group Canada Inc., announced the opening of its new 6,600 square foot service center in Delta, British Columbia, which was completed in July.

The facility, Prevost's first in the Northwest, provides full service for all makes of motorcoach as well as any buses equipped with a Volvo engine. Conveniently located near several major highways that serve Canada's third-largest metropolitan area, it is also easily accessible from Vancouver International Airport, ferry terminals, and the Canada-U.S. border.

The service center has four bays and one wash pad. In addition to normal daytime business hours Monday through Friday, after-hours or holiday appointments may also be arranged.

"Selecting Vancouver for our newest facility was a natural," said Randy Castillo, Prevost's service network manager. "The region is growing rapidly and reliance on transit service is already strong. In anticipation of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games, public transit systems in Vancouver, Whistler, Squamish, and Pemberton are enhancing their service and expanding their fleets, many with transit buses built by Nova Bus, Prevost's sister company."

As an approved DIF (designated inspection facility), the service center can also handle the mandatory new bus or motorcoach inspections required by British Columbia's Vehicle Inspection Program.
