A selection of pictures taken around Stavanger's suburbs in May 2000.

Click on any picture to see a larger version of it.

SR42063 is an Arna bodied DAF SB220 in the SOT fleet. One of the few buses carrying the traditional SOT winged logo, a little too discretely in my opinion, on the front. Seen here in Musègata, Stavanger. Click for a larger picture

Click for a larger picture Again in Musègata, is DJ19994, a Mercedes-Benz O 405 N, no. 138 in the SOT fleet. The extended footways are intended to slow the traffic in residential areas and make it safer for pedestrians to cross the street.

A typical rear view of Arna bus bodywork. This one is mounted on SR87863, a 12 metre (which is standard in Stavanger) Volvo B10BLE chassis. Click for a larger picture

Click for a larger picture SR77388 is an Arna bodied Volvo B10L, no. 247 in the Nettbuss fleet. Nettbuss is the new name for NSB Biltrafikk, a subsidiary of the state railway company, and also Norway's largest bus operator with about 1400 buses. The view here is again Musègata, looking towards Stavanger city-centre.

SR54224 is "Bydelsbussen". The bus itself is a Volvo B6 with an Arna bus-body. This popular route carried passengers from the city-centre up to the regional hospital and then around the narrow roads of the Åsen district. This route unfortunately, ran for the last time on 15. May 2000, a victim of the transport budget cuts ordered by politicians in the county council. The bus is seen here in Armauer Hansens vei, near the hospital. Click for a larger picture

Click for a larger picture SR50814 is an Arna bodied DAF SB220, no. 109 in the SOT fleet. It is seen here in Fylkeslege Ebbells gate, near the regional hospital.

UA20981 is a Volvo B10L with stylish Vest V10 bodywork. It is no. 254 in the Nettbuss fleet (formerly NSB). Seen here southbound in Lagårdsveien, Stavanger, travelling towards the Hillevåg district. Click for a larger picture

Click for a larger picture Climbing up Madlaveien towards Stavanger's western suburbs in the May sunshine is SOT's SR80745, an Arna bodied Volvo B10B. It is no.129 in the SOT fleet and is bearing an all-over advertisement for a banking service, hence the blue livery.
