海格 KLQ6108GQ28E4 Higer KLQ6108GQ28E4

編號 Class:K254 - K308,K316 - K340

新福利於二零一三年除了向三菱引進兩架三菱Rosa歐五小巴,亦繼續向海格(蘇洲金龍)訂購新車,是批新車合共五十五架,型號是KLQ6108GQ28E4,顧名思義全數海格新車只達歐四排放標準,對比香港無疑顯得落後,但在澳門而言,已經是一個進步。

從外觀上,這批新車跟二零一一年所引進的海格 KLQ6108GQ30完全相同,唯一分別是車牌是黑底白字而非黑底黃字,這亦表示相關巴士是需要向政府繳付稅款。在機械配搭方面,盡是新福利的標準,動力來源是來自中國製的東風康明斯引擎,配用福伊特全自動傳動系統,空調系統是來自國內的品牌同創提供,透過主引擎驅動。另一個跟二零一一年大舉購入的海格巴士不同的地方,就是全數巴士車廂都有安排輪椅停泊區,進一步方便傷健人士出行。

首架海格KLQ6108GQ28E4於二零一三年七月投入服務,進一步增強車隊運載能力,初期主要集中行走25F(現51線),32及34路線,隨著更多新車加入,澳氹之間的主幹路線,例如25,26A及33,以及澳門巿區路線5都曾出現這批新車蹤影。二零一三年八月二十六日,因應澳大橫琴校區開幕,新福利開辦37U路線(於二零一六年一月十六日更改路線編號成72),以方便師生往返校園及氹仔巿區,而擔綱車款亦是KLQ6108GQ28E4。

新福利在全數KLQ6108GQ28E4投入服務後,再向海格招手購買新車作車隊更替之用,不過隨後九架新車型號是長達十二米的KLQ6129GQE4。然而,似乎長十二米的巴士未能獲得新福利歡心,在二零一六年的向海格訂購新車合約中,再一次增購二十五架十點六米長的KLQ6108GQ28E4,而這批海格新車與二零一三年引進的同型號巴士,不論外觀及車廂均有所分別。

先從車外說起,新福利由這批新車開始轉用沿用多年的車隊色彩,新車身色彩以大面積鮮黃色為主調,車身中間部份以白色作襯托,營造出一個鮮明突出的車隊形象,同時在這批新車開始,新福利採用全新設計的商標於巴士車身上。值得一提是,當這批次新車自二零一六年四月下旬投入服務時,正值巨型橡皮藝術品「黃色小鴨」於澳門展出,若干新車在投入服務時,更在原有新福利新車隊色彩上,加添黃色小鴨圖案以作宣傳。除此之外,是批新車車尾亦開始使用全幅式路線牌箱,足夠顯示巴士前往方向,及提醒其他道路使用者訊息。另外,新福利同時由這批KLQ6108GQ28E4開始,採用了全新車廂設計,包括仿木紋地板膠及全新座椅款式,營造一個既舒適,又光潔明亮的車廂環境。同時,新福利於車廂若干扶手設有USB插頭,方便乘客可以替隨行電子產品充電。

披上全新新福利車隊色彩的海格新車投入服務後,成為了延長路線後的MT4主力車型,目前全數KLQ6108GQ28E4主要行走25X,26A,33及MT4等路線。

Instead of the pair of Euro 5 Mitsubishi Rosa minibus joined Transmac fleet, Transmac also acquired a batch of full-sized single decker from Higer (Suzhou Kinglong) and total 55 units ordered. The model of the order is KLQ6108GQ28E4 and as the model name shown, all these new buses only comply with Euro 4 emission standard, which was still acceptable in Macau but not in Hong Kong.

It is hardly to distinguish a KLQ6108GQ28E4 from the KLQ6108GQ30 introduced in 2011 in the fleet, the most distinct differences is the registration plate. As registration tax applied on this batch of KLQ610828E4, the wording on the plate is white in colour instead of the yellow wording on KLQ6108GQ30. The standard Transmac specification was chosen on this batch of Higer, powered by a Dongfeng Cummins engine with the fully automatic transmission supplied by Voith. The roof-mounted air conditioning from Tongchuang is driven by the main engine. To provide the most convenient to the disability, all these Higer provide a wheelchair parking bay within the cabin.

The carrying capacity of Transmac was enhanced when first Higer KLQ6108GQ28E4 of the batch started to serve commuters in Jul ., 2013. At the early stage of their service, they were mainly deployed on route 25F (now known as route 51), 32 and 34. As more and more new Higer joined the fleet, routes linking Taipa and Macau like 25, 26A and 33, can be also easily to find a KLQ6108GQ28E4. To go one step further, Macau route 5 once also served by this batch of Higer along with the Dennis Dart and Higer KLQ6108GQ30. On 26 Aug., 2013, Transmac introduced a new service 37U, re-numbered as 72 since 16 Jan., 2016, to provide feeder service between the University of Macau DE and Taipa city and the this batch of KLQ6108GQ28E4 was assigned on the route.

Transmac further acquired a batch of 9 new buses in 2014 but this time the 12m full-sized single decker KLQ6129GQE4 was chosen. However, Transmac seems not favour with 12m single decker and turned back to order KLQ6108GQ28E4 in 2016 and total 25 units were ordered. Both interior and appearance of this batch of Higer was different from the first 55 KLQ6108GQ28E4 introduced in 2013.

A new Transmac corporate livery first applied on this batch of Higer with yellow colour to be the majority with the middle part is composed of white colour. To go one step further, the new Transmac logo was first seen on this batch of KLQ6108GQ28E4 and to create a sharp image of its fleet . When they entered service in Apr., 2016, it was the visiting of the Rubber Duck (a giant floating sculptures), as to promote the event, some of the Higer carried an allover advertisement with patterns of yellow ducks based on the new Transmac livery. In addition, the rear route display on this batch of KLQ6108GQ28E4 is wide enough to show the destination of the bus and safety messages to other road users.

To provide an comfortable compartment, several new design including wood-effect floor, new style seating and USB chargers was adopted on this batch of Higer, which become the standard of Transmac new buses afterwards.

During the early days of commission, those Higer with new style of Transmac livery were mainly deployed on route MT4 after extension of it service area on 7 May, 2016 and at present, Higer KLQ6108GQ28E4 can be also seen on serving route 25X, 26A and 33
