1400 Series – Volvo B7RLE / Mercedes-Benz OC500LE CNG


This page features my collection of 1400-Series buses.

This series consists of buses operated in Perth by Swan Transit and Path Transit, and three different models of buses (Merc 0405NH, OC500LE and OC500LE CNG). Some of the buses in this series (all the OC500LE diesels) are 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!
