  • Description

    AN ENTERPRISING JAPANESE ORGANISATION HAS DEVELOPED A NEW TYPE OF COACH. WHILE HUMANS USE THEIR CARS OR OTHER FORMS OF PUBLIC TRANSPORT TO REACH THEIR HOLIDAY RESORTS, THEIR PETS WILL BE CARRIED ON THE NEW LUXURY BUS.

    THE COACH IS BUILT ON A TEN-TON LORRY CHASSES, AND CAN CARRY UP TO 200 DOGS AND CATS IN ONE TRIP. THE VEHICLE IS AIR-CONDITIONED, AND THE TRAVELLING ANIMALS REST ON AIR CUSHIONS WHILE LISTENING TO SOFT MUSIC WHICH IS RELAYED TO ALL COMPARTMENTS.

    THE STAINLESS STEEL CAGES ARE ATTENDED BY A CREW OF SEVEN, INCLUDING A VETERINARY SURGEON. THE ANIMALS ARE FED AND WATERED DURING THEIR JOURNEY, AND IF THEY BECOME FRETFUL OR IRRITABLE THEY RECEIVE INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION.

    ANIMALS ARE FORBIDDEN TO TRAVEL ON PUBLIC TRANSPORT IN JAPAN. THE FARES ON THE SPECIAL COACHES RANGE FROM THE EQUIVALENT OF GBP2 STERLING FOR A JOURNEY OF 180 MILES (300 KM). FARED ARE HIGHER FOR LARGER VARIETIES OF DOGS, SUCH AS ST. BERNARDS AND GREAT DANES.
