ICT Coaches Ltd. are Norfolk’s newest coach company but with over forty years combined knowledge and experience in the industry.
Following the success and growth of local day trip and excursion company IC Travel, sister company ICT Coaches Ltd was formed in January 2019 with 4 brand new vehicles making up the fleet.
IC Travel Managing Director Ian Colman MBE, along with Alison Fenton and Simon Spencer are co-directors of the new company and are delighted with the rapid progress seen since the company started. As company owners and drivers we take great pride and care in providing the best possible service to you our customers and our reputation means that where additional drivers are needed we are able to attract and select those we consider best to deliver our company ethos.
In Spring 2019 and with increasing business and the 2019 environmental regulations coming in to force in London ICT Coaches decided that the best option was to acquire new ‘Euro 6’ executive Coaches, the fleet comprising of 16, 32 and 53-seater executive Mercedes coaches. An 8 seater Executive Ford Torneo and 4 seater Executive Mercedes Saloon (both operated by our sister company, IC Travel) are also available for hire. All our vehicles are able to operate within Ultra Low Emission Zones without extra charge. This includes the extended zone in London from October 2021.
Our vehicles are used to provide the transport for IC Travel but are also available for private hire to groups, schools, businesses and clubs for both UK and European excursions. The two companies are able to provide a wide range of travel options from an 8-seater Private Hire vehicle for Airport transfers expanding to over 100 passengers across the fleet. The company is a member of the Confederation of Passenger Transport (CPT) emphasising the professional approach to business.
