平治OH1318 Mercedes Benz OH1318

一九九五年年尾,當新福利新購進的丹尼士飛鏢投入服務不久,替澳門公共巴士服務帶來一個新面貌,澳巴亦於不久之後,在一九九六年四月,引進四架平治OH1318新車。平治巴士對澳門巿民不會陌生,早於澳巴重組不久後,便於一九八九年購入六架配香港聯誠車身平治OF1313,聯同配同款車身的日產柴油CB12一起,行走主幹線10,接載乘客往返關閘,巿中心及媽閣。

這回澳巴所引進的OH1318跟OF1313最大分別在於,來自巴西的底盤是採用後置引擎佈局,這在澳巴而言還是首次,傳動系統採用Allison產品,操作不是一般的按鈕或者操作摃,而是透過一支類似電腦用的Joy-Stick。車身則同樣委託香港聯誠裝配,然後運抵澳門。當四架新車投入服務時,亦將澳巴新的車身色彩展示於乘客眼前。澳巴沒有忽略空調系統這環節,在這批平治上,仍然採用獨立引擎驅動空調機,當冬天時車長可以關上冷氣,而乘客則透過打開車窗保持車內空氣流通。

四架平治OH1318巴士一直主力行走10號線,直到二零一一年八月一日,因應新巴士營運模式要求,這批巴士因無法達到有關排於標準,以及已經有著十六年車齡,全數退役,而平治巴士亦由這刻開始,告別澳門公共巴士巿場之中。

There was something new to Macau public bus market in the end of 1995 when the introduction Dennis Dart by Transmac.
