Cityline Hino RK176 Coachwork International Ranger
This Cityline Coachwork International Ranger bodied Hino RK176, built in 1988, is seen in Auckland Bus Station in August 1992, from the batch 7249-7254 (NL7830-7835). The bus passed to Stagecoach with the rest of the Cityline fleet. Cityline was the trading name of NZ Railway Road Services bus services in Auckland and Wellington in the run up to privatisation. It is believed that Citylines buses were acquired by Wellington City Transport and in turn it was acquired by Stagecoach in October 1992.
Stagecoach Auckland Hino/Coachwork International
From the former Cityline fleet Stagecoach inherited large batches of Hino RK176 models with Coachwork International bodies. This one is seen still in Cityline colours on layover in Auckland Bus Station in April 2000.
Stagecoach Auckland HinoRK177 Coachwork International NX9508 Hino RK177 7537 (NX9508) is seen here on Waiheke Island, bearing its Stagecoach Auckland fleetname. Waiheke is linked from Auckland Harbour by a regular Fullers ferry fast cat service taking about half an hour. Fullers, at the time, was also a Stagecoach subsidiary. Easter weekend 2000 saw a lot of extra visitors to the island for a jazz festival. Normal services are maintained by a fleet of dual door Bedfords of the Waiheke Bus company, at the time a Fullers subsidiary in Fullers livery. For the jazz weekend a number of Stagecoach Hinos was shipped over to supplement the fleet, especially for the link from the harbour to the main town of Onetangi.
