Bus Fleet Recapitalisation

In keeping with Golden Arrow’s commitment to provide its passengers with the best possible transport experience, we took ownership of our 500th MAN bus in February 2011. By the end of 2012 Golden Arrow will have approximately 700 MAN buses in service, accounting for more than two thirds of its total fleet.


MAN buses are known worldwide for their superior standards; MAN’s Lion Explorer buses (which make up the bulk of our MAN fleet) are designed specifically for African conditions and made to exacting European standards. The body styling is in line with the MAN Lion family of City and Intercity buses from Germany. MAN bodies also comply with all the SABS compulsory standards relating to safety, including body roll-over structural strength, seat strength and anchorage, as well as emergency exit requirements.


MAN has provided us with reliable, comfortable, high-quality buses for the last 11 years; Golden Arrow looks forward to continuing its relationship with MAN for many years to come.
