MAN SL202 Buses

Between 1986 and 1989 Auckland, New Plymouth, Wellington and Christchurch all purchased MAN SL202 buses with CWI B45+27D bodies. The bodies are the German "Stadt 80" design. For New Plymouth and Christchurch these were the last buses purchased before privatisation. The buses are all equipped with ZF automatic transmissions. Those for Auckland, Christchurch and New Plymouth have 5 speed transmissions. The Wellington buses have 4 speed ZF transmissions and a lower differential ratio. While this means they perform well on the hills they have a maximum top speed of 75kph.

Auckland Regional Council

69 buses. These buses all passed to Transportation Auckland Corporation Ltd, which operated as Yellow Bus Co on 12/6/91. In 1998 this became Stagecoach Auckland. The numbers follow on from the earlier MAN SL200 buses deliverd in 1981 to 1985. The depot shown is where the bus was stationed in 2004.
