BeitragThema: Buses in your hometown   Mo 8 Nov - 3:14

How do buses look like in your home town?

I am going to begin with Hong Kong.


On the left there are two trams. The bus in white is a Volvo Olympian 11.3m air-conditioned belonged to New World First Bus. On the right, the open-top bus in yellow is a Leyland Olympian, my favourite type, belonged to Citybus (you might recognize the logo from Capital Citybus). This FD8372 used to be a typical air-conditioned double-decker. Just a few years ago right after the government decided that couples can get married anywhere they like, Citybus converted this along with a few other Leyland Olympians to open-top buses. And yes, the lower deck is still air-conditioned, a first in Hong Kong.


Even though these are very powerful, they tend to break down more often than British products. That is why you can find more buses by Leyland, Volvo and Dennis on the streets of Hong Kong than MAN, Neoplan and Scania.


This is another Leyland Olympian. It is one of the 54 12m air-conditioned Leyland Olympians introduced in 1993 when Citybus was awarded the franchise of 28 routes. As I have said above, I love Leyland Olympians more than other bus types. However, after 17 years in service, many of them have been retired and only a handful of them are remaining in the franchised bus service division of Citybus.


This is the newest Leyland Olympian in Citybus' fleet. Still, it is over 16 years old now.

In fact, there are still 2 more major bus companies, Kowloon Motor Bus and New Lantau Bus in Hong Kong. But since I only take photos of mostly Leyland Olympians around the area near my school, I don't have decent photos for those two companies. I won't tell you the real reason is that Citybus is my favourite bus company. Razz

I agree that they tend to look quite weird on matrix displays. However, the size of the letters on matrix is much larger than on cloth. Wait until you see this mess of words:

Most of our vehicles aren't air conditioned, its not needed here!
In England, there are rules coming into force that all buses need to be low floor, so that rules out MCW Metrobuses and Leyland Olympians, Although in the Wales section of Arriva, there are still a lot of them operated (open top, usually) for tours and in the summer. For example, in Llandudno, a lot of these vehicles operate for mountain tour route Number 1, which shows landmarks in Llandudno, Conwy and of course, the Great Orme.

BeitragThema: Re: Buses in your hometown   Mo 20 Dez - 18:09

Hello, that is my first post on this forum.

I would like to show my hometown - Radom, Poland.

All pictures belong to authors who published them in Phototrans world-wide gallery.
We have 24 day bus lines (and no other means of public transport), numbered 1 through 26 with 20 and 22 missing (they existed once but were only rush-hour "suppliers" and were of no use in late 1990s). All of them are run between 5.30 and less or more 23 o'clock, with major routes, 7 and 9, running practically 24 hour with no run at 3am.
There are two companies, the larger one, MPK Radom (MPK, after translation, means less or more Urban Transport Company) operating routes 4, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 21, 23, 24 and 25, while the smaller company, ITS Radom (ITS stands for International Transport and Spedition - this is how it is actually called!) running on 1, 2, 3, 6, 8, 13 and 26.
The livery is mostly white with red stripes. Older ITS buses carry white with blue stripes.

Ages ago most of the fleet consisted of Ikarus buses - 260.04 type was run only by ITS and 280.26 type was run by both ITS and MPK. MPK run 103 different Ikarus 280.26's numbered 700 through 800 (bus 700 existed twice) - examples:
MPK 280.26's:
#702 in 1994: http://phototrans.eu/14,379287,0,Ikarus_280_26_702.html
#730 in 1991: http://phototrans.eu/14,375664,0,Ikarus_280_26_730.html
#761 in 2003: http://phototrans.eu/14,376769,0,Ikarus_280_26_761.html
ITS 260.04's:
#58 in 2002 was unlucky enough to hit something: http://phototrans.eu/14,132182,0,Ikarus_260_04_58.html
ITS 280.26's:
#48 in 2002: http://phototrans.eu/14,132190,0,Ikarus_280_26_48.html

These were not fitted with air conditioning (did it exist back in 1980s?) and none are in service now Laughing I didn't like these buses a lot - they were high-floor...

Another quite common picture was a Polish make of Jelcz. Only MPK owned them, and M11's, a L11, PR110M's, a PR110D, M120's and M081MB were ever bought. The latter two are still in service.
M11 - #958 seen here in 2006 along with 10 other buses: http://phototrans.eu/14,146441,0,Jelcz_M11_958.html
L11 was a suburban version and didn't have middle doors.
PR110M - #697 in 1994: http://phototrans.eu/14,375243,0,Jelcz_PR110M_697.html
PR110L Lux - #964 in 2004: http://phototrans.eu/14,72913,0,Jelcz_PR110D_Lux_964.html
M120 - #983 in 1999: http://phototrans.eu/14,457590,0,Jelcz_120M_983.html
#986 was the first bus in Radom to be fitted with something for wheelchair users - a lift - here it is in 2004, without the lift (built 1993, scrapped 2007): http://phototrans.eu/14,73306,0,Jelcz_120M_986.html
#983 was rebuilt into #1014 - here it is in 2009: http://phototrans.eu/14,378646,0,Jelcz_120M_1014.html - for what it was rebuilt, I'll tell you later.
And at last M081MB - e.g. #1001 - here in 2010: http://phototrans.eu/14,410723,0,Jelcz_M081MB3_1001.html

None of them are air-conditioned either. All had a less or more high floor.

MPK also owns a fleet of Neoplan buses - both 12-, 15- and 18-metre long buses can be found on our streets:
Type N4016 bus, #804 is seen here in 2007: http://phototrans.eu/14,180050,0,Neoplan_N4016_804.html
Type N4020 bus, #814 is seen here in 2010 along with a panorama of Radom: http://phototrans.eu/14,404358,0,Neoplan_N4020_814.html
Type K4016td bus, #834 was pictured here in 2009: http://phototrans.eu/14,361671,0,Neoplan_K4016td_834.html
Type N4020td bus, #842 is seen here in 2009: http://phototrans.eu/14,362029,0,Neoplan_N4020td_842.html - these have a/c for the driver only
Type N4021 bus, #892 is seen here in 2006: http://phototrans.eu/14,121552,0,Neoplan_N4021NF_894.html

None of Neoplan buses have a/c for passengers. They are all fitted with electronic displays - however, they are not able to announce next stop (older controllers...). They are all low-floor for at least 45-50% of the bus (and were first buses in Radom to be low-floor).

And a wide range of MAN buses must come. I will shorten it up...
ITS own most of MAN buses in Radom - a range of NL202/NL222 and NG262/NG272 along with a MAN SG292 and a NL313. MPK only own 4 NL202 buses, over 20 NG272 buses and a NL313-15.
ITS SG292 #43 is seen here in 2007, having lost its way around Glinice - a district of Radom: http://phototrans.eu/14,192742,0,MAN_SG292_43.html
ITS NL222 #76 is seen here in 2007 (the pic also shows bus stop poles in Radom except that it's missing the bus stop name): http://phototrans.eu/14,142941,0,MAN_NL222_76.html
ITS NG272 #39 shows stupidy of some car drivers in 2006 in front of railway station: http://phototrans.eu/14,127202,0,MAN_NG272_39.html
ITS NL313 #82 runs back in 2007 to Radom city after a suburban run to a nearby village of Jedlińsk: http://phototrans.eu/14,452002,0,MAN_NL313_CNG_82.html
MPK NL202 #864 in 2010: http://phototrans.eu/14,438287,0,MAN_NL202_864.html - BTW: Ruediger! This fella was once that!
MPK NG272 #914 in 2008: http://phototrans.eu/14,261989,0,MAN_NG272_914.html - it got displays from bus #896...
MPK NL313-15 #1015 in 2010: http://phototrans.eu/14,393191,0,MAN_NL313_15_CNG_1015.html - it's the only NL313-15 in at least Masovia, if not whole Poland

No MAN buses have a/c if I'm not mistaken. All except for #43 have low-floor.

And the last but not the least - Solaris. This quite young Polish manufacturer of buses, trolleybuses and, recently, trams has its products in Poland, Germany (a plentiful in Berlin, by the way), France, Switzerland, Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Greece, Italy, Sweden, Arabian Emirates and Malta and maybe one or two more countries Smile and I'm honest. It was created in 1999 and has produced over 5500 public transport vehicles so far.
Both MPK and ITS own Solaris buses. Oldest MPK Solarises are from 2000, while younger boys are form 2006, 2007 and 2010. ITS examples were born in 2008.
MPK Urbino 12 I #854 is running on route 4 - a quite seldom run for a 12m bus: http://phototrans.eu/14,352719,0,Solaris_Urbino_12_854.html
MPK Urbino 12 III of 2006: http://phototrans.eu/14,118740,0,Solaris_Urbino_12_W12_CNG_1023.html
MPK Urbino 12 III of 2010: http://phototrans.eu/14,425602,0,Solaris_Urbino_12_W81_CNG_1041.html
MPK Urbino 18 III of 2006: http://phototrans.eu/14,449473,0,Solaris_Urbino_18_002_CNG__1045.html - this bus is the only of its specific type to be ever produced so we have a world-scale only bus!
ITS Urbino 12 III of 2008: http://phototrans.eu/14,450444,0,Solaris_Urbino_12_W9_316.html

All ITS Solaris buses and MPK buses with fleet no.'s above 1033 inclusive have a/c - all the rest don't. Every single Solaris is a low-floor bus and all buses made later than 2006 inclusive can announce next stops (except for #1045 I think, I'm not sure of that boy). However, MPK drivers have tendency to switch this function off, because "it annoys them"... it's not drivers, who are important, it's passengers! But, for a good news, ITS do switch it on. The transport coordinator - MZDiK (Municipal Road and Transport Authority) - lays cash punishments if, for example, a bus is late, or a 12m bus is on a 18m run.

Now, a quite enjoyable curio.
All MPK buses with fleet numbers above #1008 inclusive are CNG powered! Along with ITS #82, this makes 38 buses of about 120ish of our fleet CNG powered. We are second on the list of cities with CNG-powered buses in Poland, but I've no clue concerning the whole world Smile

Piotr Sekula.

Hi!
In my hometown, Salt, we share buses with the capital city here, Girona. Basically our buses are bodied all in Spain (body makers Tata-Hispano, Castrosua, Ugarte (desapeared), Unvi and Beulas), but we only have one unit made outside...in Poland! That's it, we have a little Solaris Urbino 8.6 (AKA Solaris Alpino).

In the engines side, we have Scania (L94UB, N230UB, K270UB), MAN (18.310 HOCL-NL), Volvo (B10M, B6 and B7L) and Mercedes (three old O405, the others are OC500LE1825 and 1830). I'm not in home so I can't post photos from mine, so I put here a link of a webpage where there are some photos of Girona and Salt buses:

BeitragThema: Re: Buses in your hometown   So 13 Feb - 14:56

I'm going to start of with pictures that you people in the east are used to. My hometown is Toronto,Ontario and not some random place in the United States

This is an Alexander Dennis Enviro 500. This is the Government of Ontario provincial transport services, but this is the last order on buses over seas since there is high regulations in place on where these double deckers go, since they are the only everyday transport use that primarily uses highways. After that order, the MTO (Ministry of Transportation Ontario) decided to make GO Transit buy local as if European variety isn't good enough Rolling Eyes

This is a Vanhool A330 theres also an AG300

The problem is that also, its offseas and doesn't support the local economy, so if Vanhool doesn't make a factory in Canada, they're the last of the European variety to go, and they're so fancy in terms of seating and the interior environment, instead we're getting some lousy Ontario bus with hard shell seating which is uncomfortable for a commute from suburbia which I luckily don't live.

Now this is the real grand daddy of the TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) buses. These have been here for over 40 years and still do everyday services. The name for them is a GM fishbowls and thats what the transitfans like me call them. Sadly they will be scrapped next year, or even better! Rebuilt again (Yes the TTC is quite poor so we rebuild our buses to extend their life since TTC sued General Motors after a bus split in half in the winter that was in Kansas)

These are the newest buses of them all and they're called orion VII Hybrids that are second gen. They run on batteries and consume less fuel.

This is the diesel first generation version for comparison

This is a TTC orion V and they are probably the first Air Conditioned buses. They used to run on Clean Natural Gas, but the leaks and the height forced the TTC to convert to diesel.

This is a 1998 lowfloor by newflyer, the final order before TTC became attached to Orion. They have AC also. Bonus Time

These are President's Conference Car or PCC for short. They were in revenue service until 1996 I believe. But now they're here as a tourist attraction, but still actually work for revenue service 50 years after initial production date since they fixed the 2 streetcars and brought them to almost modern standards since they're not lowfloor. You can still catch them near the waterfront only during the summer

My area's buses are mostly short (many 9.4m, some 10.1m and 10.9m, there's also 5 11.3m buses and 3 12.1m buses).

Most are Dennis Dart SLFs, a few Transbus Darts and ADL Dart / Enviro 200 (Dennis became Transbus, Transbus became ADL - Alexander Dennis, and the Darts later became known as Enviro 200 but still technically Dart).

And a video of the short part of the journey I regularly use - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1XVCKfaat4 (click here to see a map of the journey I took on the video). The bus is one of the three in the picture in the last link above. And yes, my route is the only route in the whole area that is operated by big (by our standards) full sized buses unlike the huge amounts of this sized bus in Germany and other places in continental Europe; however, this doesn't mean the route is easy and big because these three buses really struggle to manoeuvre around the route often, and as a result things are hit and swiped regularly meaning the bodywork of these buses is really bashed up and bad condition most of the time.

Please note that only the video above is mine, all of the images were taken by other people (the usernames of which can be found once you click on the link).

Here in the Netherlands i use a few buses.

Like this bus in Utrecht.


Utrecht

or the newer version.


Utrecht

and sometimes a longer version


Utrecht

Also i travel in this bus a lot. First there were like this bus, but because they were not meant for long drives on the Highway (because they were to light weight.)


Utrecht - Breda , Utrecht - Oosterhout.

They where replaced with these ones.


Utrecht - Breda , Utrecht - Oosterhout.

And in the town were i live there are only really small buses for 8 persons, like this one.


From my town.

sometimes they are replaced on the busy mornings with Touring Coaches. like this one.


From my town.

This is my list of buses, what i use almost every workday.
