Chronology

The East Lancs Cityzen was a double-decker bus body built on the Scania N113 chassis by East Lancashire Coachbuilders between 1995 and 2000. The name started East Lancs' long tradition of using 'misspelt' product names.

History[edit]

The Cityzen was developed in partnership with Scania, and a total of 86 were built. Brighton & Hove was the biggest customer with 31, while Northumbria Motor Services took 13, and Mayne's of Manchester eight.[1]

The remaining 34 were sold to a large variety of small to medium-sized operators, among them Clayton Jones of Pontypridd, which took six, and Bullocks Coaches of Manchester, which had four.

From 1997, the Cityzen was complemented by the similar Pyoneer on the Volvo Olympian and Dennis Arrow chassis.

The successor of the Cityzen was the OmniDekka, which was based on the low-floor Scania N94UD.
