The model - with the actual bus appearing with these banner adverts in late November 2011, it was only a matter of time before a model would follow and confirmation of this model was announced on 17th April 2012. The first official KMB release marking the end of non air-conditioned buses in Hong Kong was released on 4th May 2012 and is likely to be very popular.

The bus - The arrival in May/June 1995 of this final batch of 30 buses completed the order for 500 Leyland Olympians, however, by the time they arrived, they were in fact Volvo Olympians. They are the last non air-conditioned buses to be delivered to KMB.
