Bus 553 was a MAN SL200


  • It was first registered on 4 December 1978.
  • Bus 553 was fitted with a Firestone HELPL energy absorbing bumper - the first bus in Australia to be so equipped.
  • Since disposal from ACTION, this vehicle has operated for Bunbury City Transit/South West Coach Lines, Bunbury & Busselton, WA (TC3100)
  • The Firestone HELP rear bumper that was fitted to BUS 553 was later transferred to BUS 555 about a year before ACTION disposed of it.
