Walter Alexander Strider

In 1995, TIBS made a purchase of 50 Scania L113CRL buses, with the "Strider" bodywork supplied by Walter Alexander Coachbuilders. Due to the underfloor mounted air-conditioning unit, these buses featured a step entrance.

All of these buses were retired by 2014 at the end of their lifespan.


TIBS made a further purchase of 15 buses in 1995. The bodywork was supplied by ELVO (Elliniki Viomihania Ohimaton, also known as Hellenic Vehicle Industry in English). These buses were delivered without air-conditioning, and featured a stepless entrance. All of the buses were eventually converted to fully air-conditioned.

The poorer condition buses were retired early in 2010, while the remaining buses were retired by 2013 at the end of their lifespan.
