@jomZ

90% chances is that the Avia you shot was in Chennai, on Mount Road - there's this new upcoming tower which's still under wraps. The ground floor houses two trucks, one of which is this very Avia, in it's spring green colors. I'm even more convinced due to the positioning of the truck body w.r.t. the glass panes of the showroom. I pass the building everyday ad every time I look at the green truck, i go bonkers. Hope AL soon builds a bus on this platform!

BTW I didn't know it was an Avia until I saw this pic up close...I used to think it was one of those 'Neo-Trucks"

My company s in the process of replacing its now 4 year old Swaraj Mazda closed body trucks with new ones.
Any one here on Tbhp has any idea of the Discounts available on these Medium duty[6-7 ton passing] trucks chassis? The dealer offered 80000, but I feel that the discount should be much more. we need to replace 3 of them.

So, that bus in the 1st pic was a merc? What a difference from the Sutlejercedes buses of India. BTW I'm seeing a lot of 'clones' of that design these days...including 'GreenLine Travels" of Bangalore and another operator in Chennai.

What are the special features suitable for kids and how is it different from a regular 40 seater marco polo? It looks kinda big. Swaraj Mazda has been the defacto school bus

A friend of mine who runs a school is disgusted with the Tata School buses. It is apparently badly built and had broken down quite a few times already.

Except the better looking paint job, I do not find anything special in the Marcopolo school bus.
