猛獅12.220 MAN 12.220
MAN successfully gained purchasing order of supplying 9 new buses from DBTSL. Among of these 9 buses, two of them are 12.220 super low floor midibus and substituted the aging Mitsubishi Rosa used to serve the Shoppers' Bus.
The bodywork fitted on the MAN 12.220 was supplied by Goppel, one of the designated bodybuilder of MAN. Their appearance almost identical to MAN NL263 though Caetano is the bodybuilder for the latter. In fact, no more Goppel bodyworks introduced afterwards. Total capacity of the MAN 12.220 carried was 49 passengers with 22 seats provided, 3 passengers less than the Dart carried. Wheelchair parking bay with two luggage racks are offered to suit the need of Shoppers' Bus. MAN 12.220 is powered by engine supplied by MAN with ZF fully automatic transmissions, powerful enough to drive the roof mounted air conditioning unit supplied by Sutrak. To go one step further, electronic route display was fitted when new.
Instead of the Shoppers' Bus duty, this pair of midibus also supporting other routes during morning peak hours. The unique orange and white livery was retained after the cancellation of Shoppers' Bus in 2004, and standard DBTSL livery was applied circa 2005. As a new corporate image of DIscovery Bay, Dbay was launched in 2008, prefix of fleet number of all vehicles in Discovery Bay changed from HKR to DBAY including the MAN 12.220. The new purple and white "Dbay" livery was painted in 2008 and luggage rack near to the exit was replaced with two seats.
