Kigali Bus Services, Rwanda
Kigali Bus Services fleet
temporary vehicles 2013-2014
At the start of the new bus system in September 2013 the number of large buses was limited. Only KBS had its 20 Zonda and 20 Yutong, with more Yutong ordered. As a temporary measure a few large buses were rented and received the KBS-livery as it now was mandatory that each of the four concessions had its own livery. KBS also repainted one small old Hino (RAA 476X) of its own fleet into the new color scheme. It had the door on the wrong (left hand) side and was only used on a short route. In 2015 the door was moved to the right-hand side as the original configuration as not permitted anymore. It was seen for the last time in 2015.
The number of small buses was also insufficiant and a large number of Toyota Coaster was renetd (qv). Whiel teh Coaster’s are still part of the fleet, there were also a Mitsubishi Rosa and some Toyota Hiace.
