(NZ) The Yellow Bus Company

Postby mmtranz2002 » Tue Aug 14, 2007 3:10 pm

Hi there, I am hoping that some of you guys may be able to help me out. I am looking for photos of the Auckland City buses from before Stagecoach Ownership. back when they were called either:
THE YELLOW BUS COMPANY or AUCKLAND REGIONAL AUTHORITY.
Unfortunately I was growing up in New Plymouth when they were the ARA and I was living in Featherston & Wellington while they were Yellow buses.

If you are able to help out please either contact me here or via my other mailbox at maznmike@xtra.co.nz

Cheers
Mikey

I took this shot in Auckland in 1994 of MANSL200 1657 on Customs Street: -

I have a handful of others from this trip, and also 5 years later after Stagecoach take over, even though most vehicles were still in yellow at that time.

While the bus is being refuelled, the cleaner entered thru the rear door to blast everything toward the front of the bus with an air hose collected to a compressor. Everything that is sent forward is collected by the huge suction unit.
