Bus Corp Oceania (BCO) has announced it has further expanded its growing portfolio of bus brands with the addition of Higer and H7 model to the company’s bus line up.

The Higer H7 is the latest incarnation of Higer’s small bus, which has enjoyed strong sales success in Australia in the past with previous distributors and which was sold here previously as the Munro.

BCO general manager Jason Pecotic said that the return of the Higer brand answers a strong market demand for a well priced and economical to run 28 +1 seat bus with a proven driveline and credentials for a range of operations.

“The return of Higer is something I am very proud of personally as I was directly involved in first bringing Higer to Australia almost a decade ago with WMC,” said Jason Pecotic.

“Higer’s well proven formula of a Cummins engine mated with an Allison automatic transmission and well established design and construction has won friends in Australia and NZ in the past and existing customers have indicated they want to buy more in the future,” he said.

At this stage BCO will only be distributing the H7 as a compliment to its Optare route bus range and the full size Bonluck buses and coaches it sells in conjunction with BCSA.

BCO will provide full back and service for the Higer H7 through its network of dealers and service providers in Australia and NZ.

Higer will enjoy after sales back up around Australia through BCO’s own head office in Melbourne, its NSW office in Western Sydney, its cooperative agreement with BCSA South Eastern Queensland as well its  new dealer Horizons West Bus and Coachlines, based in the Perth suburb of Welshpool, with other dealers to come in other states and regions around the country in the near future.

BCO has been distributing the Optare bus range in Australia and New Zealand since August 2017 and recently entered an agreement with BCSA to act as dealers for Bonluck buses and coaches in NSW. Victoria, SA, WA and Tasmania. BCSA is now also acting as sales and service dealers for Optare in Queensland and Northern NSW.
