    I live in the west of Surrey and also deal with Stagecoach though they only seem to run the:

    And the Opatare solo:
    I think they run from the Guildford Bus station and we sometimes end up with an old Double-Decker but i can't find any images of the bus type unfortunately.

    More likely to be the Wright Eclipse, as apparently the Pulsar is on a VDL chassis, not Volvo.

    Also, updated my list.

    I think this website explains it perfectly:
    http://www.barp.ca/bus/usa/honolulu/index.html
    I only see these ones though:
    06 new flyer
    02 gillig phantom
    96 phantom
    03 gillig advantage
    98 advantage
    97 phantom
    and I could have sworn I saw a 80 Grumman 870 somewhere.....but it looked too short to be one. And a bit tall. Could be one tho.
    in Chinatown I saw this bus that was imported from California (looks like an experiment) it was some kind of electric? hybrid? bus that kinda had the style of the Californian busses and it was in a two tone with light grey/dark grey
    Californian bus for reference:
    looked something like this
    6868720670_725b397a14_b1.jpg but it was a bendy bus
    (almost all of the busses that TheBus uses has some form of bendy bus)

    Right here goes then:

    Arriva (fleetlist for colchester):

    Caetano Nimbus, RX07 plate models, short length, i presume 150ps. 6.9 tonnes i think
    (even colchester, and fastest imo bus 1563!)
    Plaxton Minipointer, 6.9 tonnes, same length as Nimbus, i believe it is a KX56 plate.

    Enviro 200, 58plate, normal length

    Plaxton Pointer 2, 7.6tonnes, same length as E200. SN54xxx bought from bus company Network Colchester, which had it's routes and buses taken over by arriva.

    VDL SB120 Wright Cadets, these are going soon *so sad :( * 02 plate being replaced by streetlites!!!



    First:

    Enviro 200s Long with 6cyl engine, these are interesting buses! From chelmsford depot (yet to be repainted :p )

    Scania L94UB's, lots of them, between this and the B7RLE i don't know which is better, both have juicy ZF gearboxes.

    Volvo B7RLE a few i think, nice bus, similar to scania l94 imo

    Volvo B7TL, so fucking loud in the summer, sounds like your grandma's hoover swallowed a few too many mushrooms and is now a double decker bus engine.

    Trident 2's, these are lovely

    the worst ones:

    Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA or Metro)

    My hometown has the 2nd largest bus fleet in North America with 2,472 buses behind NYC with 5,593.

    2000-2001 New Flyer C40LF which is powered by the Cummins ISL-G/Allison B400R5 Gen 3. (Some have Detroit Diesel 50 CNG)
    (I can hear these coming from like a mile away with the transmission whine lol) (This year is their last year in service and all of them will retire)
    12161721025_982995e745_b.jpg NFI_D40LF.jpg <--This bus reminds me of the Wentward especially the rear of this bus.




    North American Bus Industries (NABI) 45C 2003-2005 (Detroit Diesel Series 50 CNG) , 2008-2013 (Cummins ISL-G/Allison B400R6 Gen 3 & 4).
    (These are the most common buses you'll find throughout Los Angeles County)

    Metro-Rapid-780.jpg dsc_1253.jpg 19520195700_376c1c1ed1_b1.jpg
    2013-2016 New Flyer Xcelsior xn40 (All powered by Cummins ISL-G/ Allison B400R6 Gen 5)
    6034536674_83cbecb546_b.jpg 7005129135_d67e90859e_b.jpg

    2005-2008 North American Bus Industries (NABI) 60-brt. (Powered by Cummins ISL-G/Allison B500R6 Gen 4)

    7496006370_7e24d438bc_b.jpg 27738949413_be2c4218b9_b.jpg

    2001-2002 North American Bus Industries 40-LFW (Powered by Cummins ISL-G/Allison B400R5 or B400R6 Gen 3) (Some Detroit Diesel Series 50 CNG)

    These are scheduled to retire this year. They are disappearing quick and getting rare to find.

    2010 NABI 31-LFW. (Powered by Cummins ISL-G/Allison B300R6 Gen 4) (These are so useless)
