Something new in the fleet, Isuzu Citiport!

Bought from manufacturer's stock, that's why it's different color than usual! :D
If you ask me, I would have done the company logo in white to match the top half of the bus. Also I think it would look better than blue-on-red.
Regardless, it's refreshing to see a brand new vehicle on the streets!

Didn't know Isuzu made full size buses! Or is it just drive train they supply?

Bodywork is from Isuzu, under the hood is a 6.7L Cummins B6.7 300HP engine and a 6-speed ZF automatic gearbox!

That actually looks pretty good.

Our city bought a bunch of these a couple years back:

They still run around 50% of the older fleet, Lion's city:

They did get a couple of electrics first-time about 5 years ago, and 3 more diesels:

And for the tight streets of the center they run these:

Sprinter is the best for tight routes, although they're not very comfy. Electrics and hybrids are slowly taking over, tho glad to see diesels are still an option.
I think hybrids are the way to go for now, since they charge themselves while driving, whereas for electrics you need to make a certain infrastructure to charge them, either in the depot or at the bus stops along the route.
