Volvo B7RLE is a low-entry single-deck city bus chassis manufactured by Volvo Buses since 2001. In markets where the Euro VI emission requirements are enforced, it was replaced by the B8RLE in 2013.
SBS Transit currently operates one demonstrator unit of the B7RLE.
In 2007, SBS Transit received a B7RLE demonstrator unit bodied by Soon Chow. The interior featured Vogelsitze Pino seats and conference style round seating at the rear end of the bus. It also features a tire pressure monitoring system by WABCO, which actively monitors the tire pressure and will alert the driver if there are any leaks, preventing tire blow-outs. It was originally fitted with the Denso LD8i air-conditioning unit, but was replaced with a newer LD8u unit in 2015.
