- this model was released in Hong Kong on 31 July 2002 and appeared in
the UK in November that same year.
- 2101 is one of eleven Alexander ALX500 bodied Dennis Tridents which joined
the Citybus fleet in 1998. They were built as airport coaches, and have
been used on the E-series external routes which links Tung Chung New Town
and the urban districts, before Chek Lap Kok Airport was opened in July
These 11 coaches were originally painted
in Citybus corporate livery, but 2101 and 2102 were re-painted into Cityflyer
livery after they joined their Duple Metsec bodied sister vehicles serving
on the A-series airport routes. Both buses were later repainted into a
special "flying chess" livery (see photograph below) when they were allocated
as scheduled buses on Citybus's newly launched external route E22A, which
operates between the airport and Tseung Kwan O District.
