The Dennis Loline was basically a license-built Bristol Lodekka, being primarily supplied to municipal and independent bus companies in the United Kingdom, during a period when Bristol's bus sales were restricted to state-owned bus companies.[1][2]

Production was to cease in 1962, however this was quickly reversed and it continued to be made until 1966.[3][4][5]

Three versions of the Dennis Loline were built: the Loline with rear entrance, Loline II with front entrance and the later Loline III with flat floor in the lower saloon.[6][7][8]

Aldershot & District Traction was the largest operator of the Dennis Loline.

China Motor Bus in Hong Kong put one Dennis Loline into service in 1963; it was the first double-decker bus on Hong Kong Island.
