At Hypolitushoef is a touring car firm Peer & Co, which offers passenger transport in the Netherlands.
such as group transport to Germany, school transport in the Netherlands and shuttle service to events
There are also historical buses around Hypolitushoef, because it all started with a hobby.
In order to pay for my studies, I then took the regular bus in Rhenen near the central Netherlands
I studied at the Agricultural University in Wageningen.
And that's where I fell in love with the MB 200
Driven a lot with the MB 200, this type of bus.
They also had some of those semi tours that I thought were the best because they have them
A fantastically beautiful sound that I always go with a window with it
You hear the exhaust, the exhaust is on, we are that kind of bus
preferably with a semi-automatic transmission driven .
I drove thousands of kilometers alongside my studies and yes, I wanted to keep a bus like this.
Then this one came and yes, it got a little out of control because it kept getting bigger.
That's my passion, these buses.
Peer & Co is a bus company that was really born out of love.
Peer stands for my first name and Co stands for colleagues, because of course I don't do it alone ...
...I do it together with my colleagues and the drivers
I started about 10 years ago because I keep asking more. I have about ten years ago started , because I demand more and more
Can you drive this for us, can you drive this for us
Well, that's not allowed just like that. You must of course have permission
So I bought my first trainer and it's growing so slowly and now I have 4
So this is a hobby that is out of control .
I bought an old bus first and with that I thought I can see how it works
and I had such a good time that I got an inquiry for a touring car too, so I bought my first touring car.
That was about 10 years ago now
He's been gone for a while since 6 or 7 years
So I keep trying to rejuvenate myself.
Behind us we see our newest bus.
This is the new bus, a Scania bus with a Higer body
Good for 50 people and with a Euro 6 engine also environmentally friendly
A beautiful trainer who is completely contemporary and ready for you many
Rides with passengers just as this bus is ready to leave, the corona crisis hit.
Unfortunately, yes, for us, an ugly line through the bill.
You can imagine that this bus is a pretty big investment
There is also really serious money here when it comes to spraying and refurbishing
and there we hope to work with these two coaches this summer, especially in Germany...
...to do a good job
but yes it stands still.
It's actually the only bus I'm really doing at the moment
because I do not no say wants, if someone calls, I want no When someone calls, I wanna
We can also drive two trips in Corona time groups
Take nine men to Schiphol on a bus , but of course that is not the case
unfortunately it is normal.
People are always in the chessboard on the bus
Row between them. Usually this bus can hold 50, we also have a 58
It can then be a few more people than you can accommodate for 9 people
Fortunately, peer motivation is still his hobby.
Renovation and drive of the historic Oudsten cave
I've been going on buses since I was around six or seven years old
and yes that would never work I especially like this type of bus,
The sound, smell and shifting are semi-automatic transmissions
I have something to do with what you have to change by hand.
This is my first bus, I've had it for 22 years.
I bought it from Hermes.
It was a southeast bus that operated as a southeast bus.
There's still a Beksan in there, it's a ticket machine from 1978, they were still there back then.
For me it was a whole rib out of my body 22 years ago.
Over time it was a good base
had little to do about the technology . But yes for the entire luggage compartment
had to renew the rear and the upholstery and the interior
have to do pretty much.
Yes, I've been looking after him for 22 years now.
He's 42 years old now, so I'll have longer when he's served.
In the Netherlands it was the standard bus for regional transport
It occurred in the Leyland form, in 1969
but in 1971 or 72 it came with the DAF engine
and they are until '88, '89, which of course was then the standard bus
They are newcomers and really dominated the streetscape until 2012 2013
Long before this type of bus, they built intercity buses.
They also focused a little on the coach where there never is
has become very successful and there are also different types corresponding to this type
been. The B ... yeah, this is getting a little technical, but you've had different B types
and I have 2 B95s, it's also a bus type, so the last guy was also the Oudsten
built in relation to regional bus.
Another B96 was added which had a low bottom but was otherwise somewhat comparable to the B95.
Den Oudsten was the regional bus builder.
But yes, unfortunately bankrupt.
Enthusiasts like Peer Golden, the elders, make a living from collecting old buses
And the longer you are with Peer, the more buses you will see.
Yes, the orange convertible is a bus from 1976 and has been driving near the west of the Netherlands.
he then drove to the red cross , then he came to us
more or less donated.
There were some people looking for a bus to Beijing
to the Olympics when the Olympics were there.
Then guys came to me with the question
So you need him to Beijing go , to finally be this bus
In the TV show, the big twist was completely rebuilt by Veronica, made orange
and the front has been rebuilt, I don't think it's very beautiful, but it's part of the story
Then he came back and Beijing and I always wanted one too
Time for a convertible bus and then I thought I was going to build a convertible bus.
So it's not really a museum bus of a convertible, you don't really make a museum bus
but i had it twice.
The yellow bus in Hypolitushoef is actually the same bus and is run as a museum bus.
I took the liberty of making a convertible.
and that happened.
Together with colleagues, Peer makes sure that his buses become museum buses
well maintained and ready to drive, they do not come outside in the rain.
Do you also notice this hobby in the maintenance of his commercial buses?
I am really a Pietlut, so I always have the buses inside
There is never a bus outside with me that I actually have in winter because we
we also only operate one bus relatively rarely
The newest bus because a bus is also susceptible to salt in winter .
I'm very careful about it, we do a lot of preventive work
The Van Hool bus was tackled very tightly last year , they actually did
Everything will be done in the next five years and we could come preventively
already done. Think of shock absorbers, air bellows, but have also revised the brakes
new panes all around
when it may not have been necessary. I still want to keep it for another five years.
I have a little left of the maintenance maxim
I think it might not be the best business economy economically, but beaches are also big money.
