Nauru Buses

Post by Bjwh86 »

Hi,
Just wondering if anyone knows or has pics of what buses are on Nauru?
I know of two Toyota Coasters for the Asylum seeker facility and I have seen a volvo B59? In a youtube video that looks as if it has koala koaches livery.
I also believe some new buses have been delivered from fiji aswell for school and passenger runs?
Any further info or pics would be appreciated.
Thanks

Sure, didnt want to be sen to be thumping my own tub etc :)

http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/P ... nds_Buses/ has been in operation since 2006 with a small but very active and widespread membership. All comers are welcome. As regards Samoa buses there are pics and lists of all current ones, and older data and some pics going back over the years. All the Pacific Island countries are covered in varying degrees with Fiji and Samoa topping the bill.

Enjoy
Peter

Appreciate the images, Thanks. Short wheel base Toyota Coaster most likely a Japanese import and a BB42. The Toyota Coaster low roof model which was standard kit on offering from ASCO new around the islands in long wheel base form in the 2000's as HZB50.
