I really like this ad. It looks so sharp on the Enviro.

The Mitshibushi are high floor, sit only ~50, and very difficult for the 10-15 allowable standing passengers.
I am sure these new buses will actually increase the capacity rather than decrease.

But is this the first group of EURO V buses to be in HK?
I think low capacity means routes without much business, rather than the bus itself.

It seems odd that KMB would be buying the expensive Wrights buses in the current climate, unless they got a very good deal! ADL, who are well known for being cheapest don't seem to have got a look in.

Sorry, forgot to say they are not the first Euro V buses.

That one is a Volvo/Alexander running on route B1.

Cheers

They definitely have a Euro V decker, it was at their Bus Captain of the Year show. Not sure if it is ATEU1 or not.

Did a little research...

Indeed ATEU1 has an EURO V engine running on B1 now, but it's a retrofit.
ATEU1 imported with an EURO IV engine, and then replaced with an EURO V earlier this year.
(KMB's Press Release)

So these group of buses are the first complete purchase with the EURO V standard engine.

Young joyriders take double-decker for spin
21 June 2009
South China Morning Post

The YouTube clip lasted only 45 seconds yet it was all driver Keung Ting-yuen had to see to realise the menace of teenagers joyriding in buses had returned to the city's streets.

In October 2006, five KMB double-deckers were stolen in a suspected mass joyride from depots at Tuen Mun, Kwai Hing and Kwai Fong. All five buses were eventually retrieved undamaged.

The YouTube clip, uploaded on Thursday, shows a youngster in a baseball cap behind the wheel of a double-decker with at least two male accomplices heard yelling instructions beside him.

The footage, which was removed from the site last night, showed the joyriders taking the bus from a terminus, making several turns and returning to the station. Fortunately there was not much traffic in the area.

"The wheel handling is awkward," Mr Keung said after watching the clip. "He may know how to drive but he is definitely not a professional and trained bus driver. He is an amateur on a joyride."

Mr Keung, secretary of the KMB branch of the Motor Transport Workers General Union, said a driver may have forgotten to remove his keys from the vehicle. "It's not too difficult to start up a bus if the key is there," he said. He believed the joyride took place at the Mong Kok East railway station bus terminus.

Kowloon Motor Bus runs eight routes from the terminus, according to its website.

In response to the clip, a KMB spokeswoman said the company could not identify whether the bus was one of its vehicles, and it had not received a report of a missing bus.

A spokeswoman for Citybus and New World First Bus said they had not had any reports of unauthorised use of buses in the past few days, adding that starting a bus involved several procedures.

A police spokesman said no reports had been received but they would investigate.

A KMB double-decker was seriously damaged in a midnight joyride in December 2004 when it mowed down two lamp posts and a 10-metre stretch of railings in Tuen Mun.

don't you guys think the ads on the buses are really cool?

Though the Replay on the front is a little overkill.

Would love to see these babies in action.
