1300 Series – Mercedes-Benz O405NH / OC500LE CNG

This page features my collection of 1300-Series buses.

This series consists of buses operated by Swan Transit and Path Transit, and two different models of buses (Merc 0405NH, OC500LE CNG). Some of the buses in this series are also operated in regional towns.

While I’ve made every effort to ensure the accuracy of the information presented here, sometimes I make mistakes and cannot guarantee that this information is 100% accurate. And as always, expect these photos to update from time to time as I take better ones while out and about!
