Title

New JOS bus

Description

"New JOS bus: Three of the Guy Victory J buses, produced by Leyland, arrived in the island from England Thursday for the JOS. The others are expected to come in by February next year.

Each bus is equipped with a five-speed semi-automatic gearbox and carries 40 passengers on the fibre glass seats with standing room for a further 40. The Victory J differs from the busses commuters are accustomed to, in that the passage is a little wider than the normal buses and the entrance door is located behind the back wheels. Like the Leyland National, the new bus is 35 feet long. Twenty Albion Clydesdale buses have already arrived and are now in use. All 80 buses cost over $30 million."
