6 JUNE 2023

Scania through its exclusive distributor of Scania in the Philippines, BJ Mercantile, Inc. recently turned over 4 Scania Touring buses to Cagsawa Travel and Tours, Inc., the safest and cleanest bus company in the Bicol region with hospitable drivers and spacious cabins. Scania Bus K400 was handed over by Scania Southeast Asia (SSEA) Managing Director, Heba El Tarifi and BJ Mercantile's Vice President, Leilani Lim Tan to Cagsawa Travel and Tours General Manager, Willy Ngo and Director/Operations Manager William Rogando.


Scania Touring is set to provide passengers the utmost comfort and convenience with its Electronically Controlled Air Suspension, thick body insulators for better noise cancelling, enclosed overhead luggage compartments and USB charging slots in every seat.

“To bolster our claim of providing the most spacious cabins, we reduced the number of seats of the standard Scania Touring from 51 to 38 and adopted a 2 + 2 seating configuration to offer even better elbow space and legroom,” said Mr. William Rogando, Director of Cagsawa Travel and Tours,Inc. “Our drivers are also well-rested as they have very comfortable private sleeping quarters at the back of the bus.”


With Scania being the world’s leading provider of sustainable transport solutions, the Scania Touring buses promises to deliver fuel economy, energy efficiency, reduced emissions, and excellent uptime. They are also equipped with the latest technology to enhance the safety of its passengers and other motorists. Standard safety features include Electronic Stability Program (ESP), Speed Limiter, Traction Control, Driving Mode (economy and standard), Hill Hold, and Auxiliary Brakes (retarder). Other  functions that can be added to further support the driver whether they are on the open highway or in busy city environments are  Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assistance, and Blind Spot Warning.


“We are 100% committed to support Cagsawa Travel and Tours in their desire to provide the best riding experience for those shuttling between Manila and the Bicol region,” said Don Ramos, Sales Manager of BJ Mercantile, Inc. “Through our Fleet Management System (FMS), we can help monitor driving performance, vehicle data and fleet position, thereby giving bus operators all the information they need to achieve operational excellence.”


The Scania Touring buses of Cagsawa Travel and Tours are already being used in service and the reception from passengers has been very positive.


“We tell our passengers that we will bring them to their destination with a smile and we see a lot of smiles from those riding our Scania Touring buses,” said Mr. William Rogando, Director of Cagsawa Travel and Tours, Inc.
