A two day visit to the city of Kaunas at the end of August 2015. A significant number of imported second hand buses from the Netherlands with a few Swedish imports that are now getting on for 30 years old! Trolleybuses feature as well as a Daimler COG5 at a local shopping centre.
August 2019 and back to Kaunas. This is the final year of the Škoda 14Tr in Kaunas and Kauno Austobusai is marking this by allowing artists to decorate the buses as a send off. 2019 is also the year the bus fleet went 100% low floor, although there are still interesting second hand vehicles in the fleet!
It's summer so a July visit to the Lithuanian seaside. Klaipėdos autobusų have been on a spending spree since my last visit with Lion's City, Sprinters and a pair of Dancer electric buses. Other operators continue with a steady stream of pre-owned imports. In Palanga, Vlasava has been taken over by Latvian b-Bus Group.
Visits in August and December 2019 to see the varied collection of second hand Neoplans, including a bonkers N8012! Sadly, 12 new BMCs entered service after my visit so no doubt Neoplans will be thinned out by my next visit.
In December there were 22 former Nobina Örebro MAN Lion's City which appear to be for sale.
A four day visit to the city of Vilnius in September 2015. Most of the Vilniaus viešasis transportas (VVT) fleet is made up of imports from Germany and the Netherlands with smaller numbers from Sweden, France, Luxembourg, Spain and Switzerland. They have also bought new. There are also a few smaller firms, also with imports from Western/Northern Europe. And don't forget the trolleybuses.
