Chronology

The Neoplan N4009 is a low-floor midibus built by Neoplan between 1988 and 1999, initially at Stuttgart in Germany and later also in Poland. It is the smaller version of the Neoplan N4016 city bus.

Specifications[edit]

It is 9m long and 2.5m wide, and is powered by a horizontal MAN or DAF engine with Voith or ZF transmission. It typically seats 23 with a large standing capacity.

Service[edit]

United Kingdom[edit]

Only three were sold in the United Kingdom. These were bought by MTL in Liverpool in 1995, and passed to MTL's successor Arriva North West and Wales in 2000. They were in service until 2008, when they were sold on to Heartlands Bus in the Midlands.

In mid to late 2010, the three right hand drive N4009s were scrapped.
