豐田 Coaster Toyota Coaster

澳巴於一九九四年增購小型巴士時,豐田成功奪得訂單,向澳巴提供車廠其中一款皇牌,Coaster小巴。在香港,每日就有數以千計的Coaster在街道穿梭,扮演不同角色,而在八十年代尾,Coaster亦曾經成為專利巴士車隊中一員,九巴及九鐵巴士分別引進九十一架及十二架Coaster,成為香港推廣空調巴士服務時的先驅者。澳巴首批引進的豐田Coaster共二十架,於一九九四至九五年投入服務,引擎及全自動波箱均是豐田產品,投入服務後主要行走10A,10B,12及AP1路線,當中行走AP1機場線的Coaster,更曾安裝行李架。

首架出現在澳門公共巴士巿場中的豐田Coaster,並不是由澳巴擁有,而是屬於新福利。豐田眼見三菱Rosa在澳門取得成功,於是希望亦能在這個巿場中分一杯羹,於是在一九九二至九三年向新福利提供一架Coaster樣板車,雖然之後成功得到五架Coaster訂單,但可惜之後時間便無以為繼,新福利購買新車時仍屬意三菱Rosa。反之,澳巴雖然較遲引進Coaster,但從首批購入數量已經超越新福利,無獨有偶,這情況亦曾發生在早年引進的Civillian身上,最終在一九九六年前,澳巴再引進多三十架Coaster,令其車隊總數達到五十架之多,而Coaster亦成為日產Civillian後,澳巴另一款小型巴士標準車型。

澳巴的豐田Coaster一直行走至二零一一年七月底,未能過渡至澳門政府主導的新巴士營運模式中,取而代之是中國製造的五洲龍小型巴士。

One of the most successful product of Toyota, Coaster successfully gained order from TCM in 1994. There was already thousand Toyota Coaster running in Hong Kong everyday for different purposes and in late 1980s, when air-conditioned bus service started to promote in Hong Kong, total 103 Toyota Coaster joined KMB and KCR Bus Division as franchised bus. The first batch of 20 Toyota Coaster joined TCM between 1994 and 1995. All of them are powered by a Toyota engine and fully automatic transmission unit.

Liked the Nissan Civillian, TCM was not the first Macau public bus operator to introduce Toyota Coaster. As the success of Mitsubishi Rosa made in Transmac, Toyota intended to gain market share in Macau and supply a demonstrator to Transmac in around 1992-93. Though further 5 Coasters were ordered in 1994, when Transmac acquired minibuses, Rosa still was the first choice. As mentioned before, TCM purchased 20 Toyota Coasters first in 1994, already outnumbered Trasnmac and a further order for 30 Coaster was made before 1996. Toyota Coaster was another standard minibuses in TCM besides Nissan Civillian and they can be easily seen on route 10A, 10B, 12 and airport route AP1. Those Coasters serving AP1 were equipped with a luggae rack.

After 12 years of service, all Toyota Coaster finally withdrawn from service by the end of Jul., 2011, just before the introduction of the new bus operation mode and they were replaced with the Wuzhoulong minibuses from China.
