Chronology

The Wright Cadet was a low floor midibus body built by British coachbuilder Wrightbus between 2000 and 2006, solely on the DAF/VDL SB120 chassis. It was sold via VDL dealer Arriva Bus & Coach. It sold in large numbers in London and with major operators in the UK and in mainland Europe, with some going to Arriva in The Netherlands.

Volvo Merit[edit]

An example of the largely identical Volvo Merit combination in use with Warrington Borough Transport.

Volvo also sold the Cadet on DAF/VDL SB120 chassis themselves for a time, marketing the chassis and body combination as the Volvo Merit.
