|290: (OJ52 HDT) Neoplan Centroliner DPH59/33D
Padbus Lite was a short-lived attempt at an internet booked, low cost
bus service between Oxford & London. At the same time, the
long established Oxford-London X10 service was rebranded as Club
Class. However, it was found that customers were not interested in
booking in advance for a fairly short journey and feedback suggested
that what was wanted was a no-frills, frequent, turn-up-and-go service.
As a result the Lite and Club Class brands were dropped and the route was relaunched
as OXFORDMetroShuttle and this bus was rebranded accordingly. In 2015, it moved to Grey Green for
schools work until it was withdrawn in 2017.
The model is a repainted Drumwell diecast.
