39220 | Manchester Shudehill | 09/03/13
First Manchester is undoubtedly the second major operator in the city after Stagecoach, dominating the north side of the city from mainly this bus station. Not surprisingly, they have a fleet of electric hybrid buses just like Stagecoach and Arriva, of which 39220 (BN61MWY) is one example. This Volvo B5L Hybrid with Wright Eclipse Gemini 2 is similar in appearance to those operated by Arriva, but is a full-height version. These boast high-backed Lazzerini Pratico seats inside and wear a snazzy silver version of First livery.
