IntroductionEdit

The Mercedes-Benz O405 PMC160 is a 11.7 metre long bus which was the first in the Sydney Buses fleet to feature 'kneeling' suspension for easier access and air conditioning. The body is a '160' made by Pressed Metal Corporation, hence the 'PMC' in the name. It is not wheelchair accessible.

ServiceEdit

Some of the O405 PMC160 buses operated on the Sydney Explorer route before it was discontinued in 2010 and the buses, painted in the red Sydney Explorer livery, were sold. The remaining three buses (fleet numbers 3383-3385 ) were retired in April 2016.
