Citybus has introduced a new five-digit fleet numbering system following the demise of the New World First Bus brand. This new numbering system was noted in early October 2023 with Wrights Gemini 3 bodied Volvo B8L 8800 and 8802 being renumbered 53100 and 53102 respectively.
   
The first digit identifies the basic type and length of the bus:- 

1 - single-deck bus
3 - 10 metre double-deck bus
4 - 11 metre double-deck bus
5 - 12 metre double-deck bus
6 - 12.8 metre double-deck bus

The second digit for single-deckers identifies the bus type:-
   
1 - Alexander Dennis
2 - Youngman
3 - BYD

The second digit for double-deckers identifies the bus type:-

0 - non-franchised buses
1 - Alexander Dennis
2 - Volvo
3 - Any bus type with luggage racks
9 - non-standard bus types

The third digit for double-deckers
 
8 - Cityflyer
9 - special bus types (e.g. open top, hybrid)
        
My thanks to Dennis Ngan and Philip Chan for their help in providing details for this page.
