The model - in June 2018, Model 1 announced plans to release five standard liveried Citybus MAN NL262/R. The company had, back in 2012, released four resin examples of this bus type. The five feature 1502, 1507, 1527, 1532 and 1538 and they were all released on 30th January 2019. 

The bus
Citybus purchased sixty of these single-deckers in 1998 and they were allocated fleet numbers 1501-1560. A further twenty were added in 2000 (1561-1580). The last 11 of the batch were sold in 2004/5 to New Lantao Bus, Discovery Bay Transport and one to an operator in New Zealand. In 2006, 1560-1569 underwent modifications which included the removal of the centre exit doors and the fitting of luggage racks, and emerged in Cityflyer colours, ready for the launch of the new Cityflyer route A10 from Aberdeen to the airport.
