丹尼士/亞歷山大丹尼士飛鏢 Dennis/Alexander Dennis Dart

編號 Class:D

當瀏覽本網站時,可會發覺差不多每個主題分頁裡,都有出現有關丹尼士飛鏢的車型介紹及相片,由此可見這款產品是何其成功。簡單的底盤佈局,合理的機械配搭及低矮車廂地台,都促成了飛鏢的成功,加上不同車身組合,不但滿足不同營運環境需要,亦加快交貨時間,進一步吸引巴士公司樂於選擇飛鏢作車隊成員。

遠東地區除了香港,馬來西亞(由當地聯營公司UMW-Dennis製造)及新加坡,丹尼士飛鏢亦成功打進了澳門公共巴士巿場,一九九五年底,新福利引進十架配Plaxton Pointer雙門版車身飛鏢巴士,成為繼亞比安及一眾二手雙層巴士之後,來自英國的車款。當十架新車於英國裝配完成,經香港運到澳門後,寫下了新福利首款後置引擎巴士車款紀錄,以及帶來全新福利車隊色彩。全數飛鏢機械配搭都是當年的標準,康明斯B系引擎,Allison全自動波箱及由引擎驅動的德國超卓空調系統。當年新福利引進丹尼士飛鏢目的是行走機場路線AP1,但其後小型巴士已經能應付,所以飛鏢便改為派往往返關閘及港澳碼頭的3號線,而事實上除了D01曾短暫服務AP1,其餘九架新車甫一出牌便派往3號線。這批飛鏢在服役期間車身曾作出改動,全密封車窗於大約二零零三年換上頂部設有透氣小窗的款式,當車長於冬天關上空調時,乘客可開啟小窗保持車廂空氣流通。

到了二零零四年,新福利再引進飛鏢,這次是四十架低地台版飛鏢,跟D01-D10不同是由經多番重組而成的亞歷山大丹尼士製造,而車身方面,亦不像香港般採用Plaxton出品,改用MCV的出品,並由位於新加坡的順洲企業裝配,然後經香港運抵澳門。用於這批飛鏢低地台巴士上的MCV車身,特色在於車尾不設任何車窗,並成為日後購入大型單層巴士的標準。機械配搭雖然仍是康明斯引擎,但馬力有所提高,而變速系統除了Allison,亦有選配福伊特的出品,開利超卓提供的空調系統仍然由主引擎帶動。這四十架飛鏢有兩種長度,首二十架是十米長,最後二十架則是十一米長本。當低地台飛鏢加入新福利後,立即成為主幹路線3的主力,而1A,5及33亦常見有Plaxton及MCV車身飛鏢巴士蹤影。

早在二零零六年,新福利分別於兩架飛鏢巴士(D33及D42)試驗兩款電子路線牌,隨著試驗成功,期後在二零零八至零九年間,全數飛鏢被換上這兩款電子路線牌,取代原有的路線牌布。當二零一一年八月一日,澳門巴士進入全新營運模式,首批十架Plaxton車身飛鏢因車齡及排放問題退役,而餘下的四十架飛鏢低地台巴士,則主力行走4,5,9A,偶爾出現於25及MT4路線。隨著新福利繼續向中國的海格車廠購入新車,D20 - D27及D30已經於二零一六年四月下旬從日常路線中退下來,轉作私人租貸之用,而仍然採用飛鏢作主力的路線亦只餘下4及5號線。

It is not rare that Dennis Dart appeared in different sections of this website and you can know how success of this model. Benefited from simple chassis structure, a wide variety of bodyworks and low body frame were resulted. In addition, a reasonable mechanical specification also helped gaining purchase order from different bus operators.

At the end of 1995, 10 Dennis Dart with Plaxton Pointer dual doorways bodyworks were introduced by Transmac. Dennis Dart is the British bus model successfully entered Macau public bus market after the Ablion and those second-hand double decker. All Dennis Dart were bodied by Plaxton in UK and then sent to Hong Kong before delivery to Macau. The Dart left two records in Transmac: the first rear-engined bus model and the first to apply the new colour scheme. All of them powered by a Cummins B-series engine with Allison transmission and the German-made Sutrak air conditioning was driven by the main engine.

The purpose for introduction of Dennis Dart was serving the airport route AP1, but due to the low demand, only D01 was once allocated on AP1 and later the route was served by the Mitsubishi Rosa. D01 was then deployed with other Dennis Dart on the trunk route 3, operated between Portas do Cerco and the Jetfoil. In 2003, the original sealed window of Dennis Dart was replaced with window with opening at the top, this can ensure a good ventilation when the driver switched off the air-conditioning unit during winter.

A further 40 Alexander Dennis Dart SLF with two batches, the first 20 are 10m long while the remaining are 11m long, with MCV bodyworks assembled by Soon Chow of Singapore were arrived at Macau in 2004. MCV bodywork fitted on the Dart SLF featured with no window at the rear and to be the standard for the full-sized single decker in the future. Their specification are Cummins ISBe engine with either Allison or Voith gearbox. The air conditioning unit supplied by Carrier-Sutrak still driven by the main engine. Liked the Plaxton example, the MCV bodied Dart SLF mainly assigned to serve routes 1A, 3, 5 and 33.

Two Dennis Dart SLF, D33 and D42, were used as a test bed for two different brand electronic display in 2006. After the successful trial, Transmac replaced all traditional route display of Dennis Dart with the electronic display between 2008-09. The new bus operation mode was implemented since, 1 Aug., 2011, as failed to comply with the Euro 3 emission, the Plaxton Pointer bodied Dennis Darts were retired on the same day while the Dart SLF, actively served route 4, 5, 9A and sometimes seen on supporting route 25 and MT4. Since the end of Apr., 2016, with more Higer joined Transmac, D20 - D27 and D30 were retired from revenue service and used on private hiring duties and only route 4 and 5 still served with Dennis Dart.
