2500 Series – Volvo B7/B8RLE

This page features my collection of 2500-Series buses.

This series consists of buses operated in Perth by Swan Transit, and mostly has Volvo B7s, with four B8s towards the end of the series.

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!
