Harte Buses

Post  anorakman on Wed May 05, 2010 12:44 am

Passed a 10 plate Harte vehicle on the Braehead service in Largs yesterday. When I say vehicle it's because I got only the briefest of glimpses - it seemed too high to be a low floor bus it has a very uncoachlike front end - flat and upright - I'm almost certain it had a Mercedes badge on the front.
Any ideas?

It's a MAN 'A91' chassis (budget rear-engined, high-floor bus/coach) with bodywork by FAST, a French company, who chiefly aim for the schoolbus market.

According to Harte's half page advert in the Largs & Millport Weekly News ( a riveting read) it's a Mann and it cost £150,000
