  1. Last pic, Ikarus 55.
    Our local public transportation company (Vértes Volán) has renewed one, it’s working fine, and is used as a nostalgia ride/special service (in films, etc).

    Some (~30-35) are still in use in Budapest.

  2. Yes Hungary makes very good busses. The busses we use in Los Angeles are NABI which was born from the Ikarasz company. If i remember correctly the bus shells are manufactured in Gyor Hungary. Hungary supplied busses for much of the Eastern Block.

    Look at the buses in Malta – made in 1940s and still running, and a pleasure to ride in…
