GENERAL NOTES

 

The fleet has been re-branded 'bus vannin' in lieu of Isle of Man Transport, and whilst vehicles have been completed evidence of the former name can still be found on some bus stops
Isle of Man Depertment of Community, Culture & Leisure has three depots, Douglas Railway yard, Port Erin and Ramsey, but individual vehicles are generally not specifically allocated to a particular garage, although in a recent departure from tradition, a number of buses have gained the letter 'R' after front and rear fleetnumbers indicating a provisional allocation Ramsey depot. Additionally a number of older vehicles have an 'S' after front and rear fleetnumbers, indicating vehicles that should be the first call for schools buses, although in practice it is common to see both these and 'R' vehicles on regular service Island wide. Side fleetnumbers on both the 'R' & 'S' vehicles do not sport the letter.
Where a number in Roman numerals is quoted after a registration number, this refers to the number of psv's to have carried this mark eg T10 MAN[ii] indicates it to be the second bus to be registered with that number.
