A selection of Chisinau buses

There are a few full-size motor buses on town services. I think these are Hyundais. They have step entrances and manual gearboxes and a very Japanese sliding centre door. They run M-F paralleling the trolleybuses but charge a premium fare of 18p compared with 12p on the trolleys.

A route and manufacturer branded Merc.

Kassborer Setra.

This bus once belonged to Connex. Our guess of The Netherlands has been confirmed by Tony Wilson.

Christoph, a friend from Germany, comments:
"I had to comment on one bus picture from Chisinau posted on 27 June, by the way. The greenish Dutch bus belonged to Connexxion, originally a Dutch state-owned company which had nothing to do with the French company Connex."

Almost Stagecoach stripes.
