The Mancunian double-decker bus was a type of bodywork for double-decker bus designed by Manchester Corporation Transport Department and built on Leyland Atlantean and Daimler Fleetline chassis. A total of 472 Mancunians were ordered by the Department between 1965 and 1968 and delivered from 1968 until 1972 by Park Royal, East Lancs, Metro Cammell and Charles H Roe. The first 96 buses ordered (48 each from Leyland and Daimler) used a 30-foot (9.1 m) chassis, but the majority were 33 feet (10 m) long. A further 20 were built for Salford City Transport.
Nine have been preserved.
