Scania Omnidekka ABus BU54AJP

The Scania OmniDekka is a double-decker bus built by Scania of Sweden for sale in the UK. The model is based on the N94UD (with a small number based on newer Scania N230UD/N270UD) chassis and is currently sold in the UK with a body by East Lancashire Coachbuilders, based on similar bodies mounted on Alexander Dennis, VDL and Volvo chassis but with a modified front, similar to the OmniCity which instantly makes the bus recognisable as a Scania product.

After a few years of production of the OmniDekka, Scania produced its own body on the N94UD, similar to what it already does on the OmniCity, named the OmniCity double decker. A prototype was delivered to Travel West Midlands, with a small number of production buses being built for Transdev London and Lothian Buses. Plans for Wrightbus bodywork on the N94UD chassis were dropped after Wrightbus experienced difficulty adapting the bodywork for the chassis.

Scania came late to the low floor double decker bus market, having for many years offered only the single deck L94UB on a Wright body to UK operators. Despite this, the OmniDekka has sold well, especially with those who had previously operated Scania double deckers but had since ordered other products. Large operators include Go-Ahead Group companies Brighton and Hove, Metrobus as well as council owned Reading Buses, and Nottingham City Transport. High profile uses of the OmniDekka include use by First Group on service X53 in Devon and Dorset which operates a long distance service along the Jurassic Coast between Exeter and Bournemouth and by Stagecoach on Corby Star services in Corby, Northamptonshire which have helped Stagecoach battle against taxis in the area.
