 New Youngman JNP6105GR single-deckers - August/October 2012
 
The first Citybus liveried 10.5 metre Youngman 6105GR was spotted in early June 2012.

Fleet no. 1811 was the first to be registered on 31st July 2012 although the first of the batch numerically was 1810. 1811 entered service on 15th August 2012 operating on route 76 between Causeway Bay (Moreton Terrace) and Shek Pai Wan. and my special thanks to Grant Ng Kwok Kuen for providing photographs of this event. The second bus to enter service was 1814, being registered on 15th August 2012.

I found the passenger information displayed inside the bus most helpful, initially showing all the stops en route and then displying the next three stops - this equipment was also noted on the latest Citybus Enviro500s.
