Home / Transperth, Perth, Western Australia / Renault PR100.2 [176]

To Singapore bus enthusiasts, the Renault PR100.2 is a distant memory in the form of a demonstrator, SBS30P, that underwent a short trial by then-Singapore Bus Services (SBS) in 1989 which no subsequent purchase was made.

However in Australia including Perth, many Renault PR100.2 units remain alive through 2014. In the case of Transperth, the bodywork they received from Howard Porter and JWBolton was very similar to the SBS demonstrator, only that they were non air-conditioned.

First delivered in 1986, these units were powered by the 255hp Renault MIPS 06.20.45 engine and fitted with Voith DIWA D863 3-speed automatic transmission. Selected PR100.2 based in Morley were converted to use compressed natural gas instead of diesel (622, 1027-1030, 1038, 1056-1057, 1069).

A majority of these buses are deployed for peak-hour running. An articulated version, known as the PR180.2 also sees active service in the city.
