車隊編號/車牌 Fleet No./Registration No.：DBAY172/TH7240
雖然在上一次更新機場線車隊之後，愉景灣有進一步購入富豪B7R客車，但令人意外是這趟更新車隊行動中，富豪未有獲得垂青，反而向另一瑞典車廠Scania招手，購入兩架K280IB。Scania巴士出現於愉景灣並不是新鮮事，早於二零一三年，配合位於愉景灣北部的酒店開幕，購入兩架配捷聯JL-010車身的Scania K320IB客車。至於這兩架Scania K280IB，車身配搭為這個社區帶來新意，配用了Marcopolo Audace 1050車身，於中國常洲裝配完成。愉景灣這兩架K280IB配用原廠的DC09-113歐盟六型排放標準引擎及原廠Opticruise波箱，足夠推動由Spheros提供的空調系統，為容納四十九個乘客車廂提舒適旅程。
DBTSL acquired a pair of second-hand Alfredo Caetano bodied MAN 16.280 in 2011 to cope with the development project of Discovery Bay (North). Unfortunately, performance of these pair of MAN was unsatisfactory though their first registration made in Apr ., 2011 and complied with the Euro 3 emission standard. The HKSAR Government launched a Ex-gratia Payment Scheme to encourage transport industry phasing out Pre-Euro 4 Diesel Commercial Vehicle since Mar ., 2014, as a result, DBTSL decided to introduce new buses which can meet Euro 5 or higher emission standard as replacement.
Though more Volvo B7R were ordered after the first two joined in 2012, it was surprised that Scania K280IB with Marcopolo Audace 1050 bodywork was introduced. This batch of order consisted of 2 K280IBs and before their arrival, DBTSL already operated another pair of Scania coach, K320IB with local Jit Luen JL-010 bodywork, for the use of shuttle service of Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong. Their 49-seated bodyworks were completed in Changzhou, China and air conditioned by Spheros air conditioning unit driven by the power unit from Scania, a Euro 6 DC09-113 engine with the Opticruise transmission.
DBTAL allocated Scania K280IB on the service DB02R to and from the Airport and as the Volvo B7R, they just carried the standard "Dbay" corporate livery without any logo and a sticker was put onto the engine cover to promote they are Euro 6 emission buses. Moreover, their fleet number was swapped during the early days of their registration.
