The East Lancs Cityzen is a double-decker bus body that was 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 and it can be built as either a closed top bus or an open-top bus.
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.
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. Some vehicles have been built as open-top buses with their roof partially removed.
