At the recently held Australasia Bus & Coach Conference & Expo between September 28 and October 1 2014, Yutong Australia displayed its eagerly anticipated Low Floor ‘SLF’ City Bus to a delegation of over 1,000 participants from bus companies across the country.
The inaugural Bus & Coach Conference was the culmination of a partnership between the national Bus Industry Confederation (BIC) and its state-based counterpart the Queensland Bus Industry Council (QBIC).
During the Bus Expo the Yutong Low Floor received a great deal of attention from bus operators across the country who were impressed with the design and quality finish of the vehicle.
The vehicle’s running gear consists of a powerful 8.9 litre Cummins ISL 320hp UK built engine, ZF ‘Ecolife’ 6 speed transmission along with ZF front and rear axles.
The body work is constructed out of bolted Aluminium with inside features including a Mobitec Electronic Destination Board, Thoreb C90 Integrated Data System and Heat/Cool Air Conditioning. In terms of seating capacity the Low Floor City Bus is rated for a maximum of 44 passengers and 25 standees – with front and rear door entry.
The Low Floor is currently stationed at Bus Stop Brisbane’s Archerfield facility for operators wishing to check it out for themselves.
