Archway Travel's new yellow School Bus

Archway Travel's latest double decker is GX09 ZZV, a Volvo B9TL Wright Eclipse Gemini 2, which is still running in the colours of its former operator, Yellow Buses of Bournemouth. The livery is the reverse of Archway's normal school bus colour scheme, ie yellow with red lettering and flash, as opposed to their usual red livery with yellow lettering and flash. The vehicle was supplied new to Bus Vannin in the Isle of Man in 2009, as fleet number 162 (JMN48R), and moved to Bournemouth in Dorset in 2020.
