Volvo B12BLEA

The first ‘new’ articulated buses in more than 20 years (that weren’t one-offs), these are build on the 12-litre B12 chassis. Personal opinion, these are by far the best-sounding buses in Perth!

Bus/Livery Variants

Do note that as buses are maintained over the years, sometimes the liveries (particularly the fleet numbers when large advertisements are placed) are altered so they don’t quite match their siblings. These aren’t included here, this summary covers the liveries the buses had in their original spec.
