This 102-seater bus is the first of two ex-Big Bus open tops to join the fleet of CBNW for the 2013 season. It originated as one of arouund 80+ tri axle Metrobuses delivered to China motor bus (CMB) back in 1988. Its first day of use on SeaFront 12 was Friday 21 June.

A Cracking Contraption!

The finishing touches are being put to former Big Bus Tours MCW Metrobus open top F69SYE and its wrap for Wallace & Gromit. 69 is now looking superb in its stunning advert livery that will certainly turn heads this summer on SeaFront 12. F69SYE last carried passengers back in 2009 and it is expected to start operating on 12s during mid-June.
