United Bus was a bus manufacturing group created by DAF Bus and BOVA (both from the Netherlands) in 1989. It was later joined by Den Oudsten (Netherlands), Optare (UK), and DAB (Denmark).

Collaborations[edit]

The collaboration between DAF and Optare led to the introduction of the DAF DB250 double-decker with Optare Spectra bodywork. This was the first partly low-floor double-decker and set the standard for future developments.

Demise[edit]

United Bus failed in 1993, though the partners survived independently.
