The Alexander PS is a single-decker bus body built by Walter Alexander Coachbuilders, and was produced between the late 1980s and 1990s on Dennis Lance, Leyland Lynx, Mercedes-Benz O405, Scania and Volvo B10M chassis. They normally seat around 49 passengers.
This style was originally built for Singapore Bus Services, but Stagecoach Group is also a big user of the type, many examples having been purchased for use in the UK. Many FirstGroup examples have been scrapped, but buses previously with Stagecoach have fared better, with many of the latter leading new lives as school buses with smaller independent operators in Britain. The body was also sold in Hong Kong, for Kowloon Motor Bus and Stagecoach Hong Kong.
