More Info →Palmerston North city bus fleet in The Square

The city bus fleet here has four different types of buses. The Leyland, Tiger Buses, to the left of the employees, were purchased in 1934-1935 at a cost of 1,237 pounds. The newer diesel buses were purchased soon after at a cost of 2,316 pounds. The City bus fleet used a terminal in The Square until moving to a bus terminal in Church Street East in 1977. Behind can be seen the former BNZ building on the corner of Fitzherbert Avenue (on left) and the Grand Hotel (on right).
