Volvo B10M-61 MkII

Introduction

SBS introduced 200 non-aircon B10M-61 Mk 2s progressively from 1988 onwards. 100 of these buses have Walter Alexander bodies, while the rest of the fleet  have Duple Metsec bodies. 

In response to the increased demand in air-conditioned buses, some of these buses were converted to air-conditioned bus in 2000. The first two buses to be converted were SBS1881T and SBS1888A, and both  have under-floor air-cons. However, subsequent buses to be converted have roof-mounted air-cons instead.

Most of the B10M Mk 2s are currently based in the East and West Districts, with only around 20 examples based in the Central District. The B10M Mk2s based in the East District are mainly bodied by Duple Metsec, while those based in the West District are chiefly fitted with bodies by Walter Alexander.
