三菱Rosa Mitsubishi Rosa
After the Yutong, TCM purchased the same bus model as sister company New Era in 2015 with a batch of 5 Mitsubishi Rosa, the first Japan made bus model introduced after the Hino Liesse in 2004. After the new bus operation mode started operation since 1 Jul., 2011, though there were still some Hino Rainbow and Liesse served in TCM, the mainstream of the fleet was Wuzhoulong from Shenzhen. Only few Hino Liesse still survived in TCM after the role of the Rainbow taken over by the Yutong ZK6118HGE in Dec., 2014 and mainly serving on route 6A to and from Hospital S. Januario or as reserve fleet.
As required by the new bus operation mode, all bus operators need to renew their fleet as to maintain the average age of the fleet not more than 7 years and instead of keep acquiring new buses from Yutong, Mitsubishi Rosa was chosen for evaluation purpose and a batch of 5 was ordered. The first TCM Rosa was delivered in Mar., 2016 and a little bit later than the New Era sample, however, it only took about three months for the preparation works prior to enter service.
TCM Mitsubishi Rosa shared the same mechanical specification with Transmac and New Era fellows, a Fiat Euro 5 engine with DUONIC transmission from Mitsubishi and they can accommodate 35 passengers with 20 seatings, one more passenger carried when compared with Wuzhoulong FDG6751G. TCM only deployed the Rosa on route 7 serving between Iao Hon and Barra, and during the time operated by Transmac, also used to serve with Mitsubishi Rosa.
