Chronology

The Alexander Dash is a midibus body built by Walter Alexander Coachbuilders of Scotland from 1991 to 1997. It was one of the variants of Alexander's AM-type body and was usually combined with the Dennis Dart and Volvo B6 step-entrance bus chassis.

The body was mainly built for the UK bus market, although one example with a Volvo B6 chassis and air-conditioning was shipped to Hong Kong as a demonstrator. This bus was later acquired by Citybus.

Many UK operators had used these buses for interurban and rural services rather than metropolitan or inner-urban service, due to its high-floor, high capacity nature.

It was superseded by the low-floor Alexander ALX200 model.
