Firefly is one of the survivors of the deregulation era for express coach services. It now markets and prides itself on quality of service. At one time there was a large fleet of Denning Landseer deckers like this one caught in Melbourne from the early days of operation of the current express network linking Adelaide and Sydney via Melbourne.
The front line coach fleet all carry names, 14 (5514AO) is known as Midnight Runner. An appropriate name as there are overnight runs in both directions between Melbourne and Sydney and Melbourne and Adelaide. There are day coaches too. Midnight Runner is a 2004 Coach Design bodied Scania K124EB.
Also dating from 2004 was the only Volvo in the fleet, Princess of Melbourne, 12 (5512AO), a B12B with Coach Design body, since sold to Brim's Coaches. The coach is seen in the Maidstone depot in April 2010.
Firefly Express is proud of the standards set in the interior of their coaches. This is the inside of Miss Adventure, Scania 55 (555AO), built for Firefly by Coach Concepts.
