The East Lancs Myllennium Lolyne is a type of twin-axle low-floor double-decker bus body built on the Dennis Trident 2 chassis by East Lancashire Coachbuilders.


First Devon & Cornwall East Lancs Myllennium Lolyne in Plymouth in July 2013

The Myllennium Lolyne superseded the East Lancs Lolyne. The Lolyne was also the East Lancs body for the Dennis Trident 2, but in 2000, was given a facelift with East Lancs Myllennium design. This is what gave the Lolyne its new name the Myllennium Lolyne.


The structure of the Lolyne was built using the Alusuisse "System M5438" system, for optimum strength. Glazing was with laminated glass, and gasket glazing came with the bus as standard - with bonded glazing available - and had hopper opening windows. The heating was thermostatically controlled and windows and air vents provided ventilation. The seating was trimmed in customer's required moquette. The floor had a 12mm Xyligen Basileum treated Finnish Birch combi plywood floor on the lower deck and both decks a non-slip flooring. Electrical features were the fluorescent light on the bus' ceilings, and twin circular halogen headlights. Also, CCTV was available. Destination displays only came as manual as standard, doors were air operated and were made of toughened glass. A simple driver's compartment was designed, to make the driver's job easier. Two pack acrylic paint was available for the exterior. [1]
