In Palmerston North, New Zealand (population 80,082 as of 2013), the bus services are contracted out by Horizons Regional Council to a company called Tranzit Coachlines. Urban bus services here are very much in their infancy though they are adequate, I guess. Horizons Regional Council also fund regular services to Feilding (a little town about half an hour away) as well as sporadic services to other little rural areas within their region, mostly operated by Tranzit. The buses normally used are:

10203560185_6473c2ca6c_z.jpg

BCI Cityriders (horrible, windowless - sealed - things with pathetic curvy 'ergonomic' plastic seats) In case you were wondering, the guy at the back of the bus is Richie McCaw (the captain of our world champion rugby team, the All Blacks, and almost a demigod in NZ) advertising a building company. Also, the corrugated iron roof to the bus' left is *part of* our main urban bus terminal, located just off The Square (our main city square, unsurprisingly)

10203467864_1a8b640491_z.jpg

MCV Evolutions (which I am quite fond of due to their boxiness). P.S. - this photo was taken in Wellington, not in Palmerston North. Hence why the bus says 'Cruise Ship Shuttle' when the closest thing we have to the ocean is the astonishingly filthy Manawatu River.

10203561635_7a96b92c79_z.jpg

MAN 16.223s assembled by Designline down in Ashburton (near Christchurch) before they were liquidated in 2011. My personal favourite as they have openable windows and sensible cloth seats (as do the MCVs - they aren't upgraded to the curvy plastic abominations on the BCIs yet).

 

The other player seen often on Palmerston North roads is Uzabus. Uzabus (full name The Uzabus Fleet) is a group consisting of five affiliated companies (Palmerston North Coachline, Madge Coachlines, Transbay Coaches, Ranui Buses Opotiki and Unique Holiday Tours) that combine to pool their fleet and resources, giving them a (more or less) nationwide footprint.

Palmerston North Coachline and Madge Coachlines buses are the ones mostly seen around Palmerston North, mainly as Ministry of Education-subsidised school buses transporting rural students into the city for education. Also seen as charter buses (especially for large crowds like us high school children). A huge variety of different makes and models are operated under the Uzabus brand:

9450513732_04e321cd66.jpg

These are a very common sight, especially around high schools at 8.30-ish - Isuzu Journey buses with a fluorescent yellow 'SCHOOL' tag on the front.

Most of buses in Zagreb are MAN Lion's City, MB Citaro, and Iveco Citelis CNG bought in 2009.

... but buses are not the main mode of transport, they're mostly connecting suburbs with trams, actually.

That's RT which covers the entire region.

Locally, we also have these little things

Our airport also has a cute little transit system-

To reply to @puddle who has shown some great Sacramento buses (I can definitely recognize the RT), I will be representing the San Francisco Bay Area, which not only has one or two mega-agencies, but 25-plus agencies (buses, ferries, light rail, and heavy rail trains), split by region and county (if not subdivided by portions of one county). For this post, I will be posting the transit agencies I use most frequently as I travel around.

 

Golden Gate Transit and Marin Transit - my home agencies, since I live in the North Bay.

 

18476622020_7aab9d339d_b.jpg

 

18638023296_bd2eabc2a8_b.jpg

 

San Francisco Muni - the big San Francisco transit agency, operates 24/7

 

18041493724_eae4d8c26e_b.jpg

 

18043485783_b2dfafcba9_b.jpg

 

AC Transit - operating on the western portions of Contra Costa and Alameda Counties, plus Milpitas, San Francisco, and San Mateo; also operates 24/7

 

17731590178_316d29e0d0_b.jpg

 

16965523128_ac7ac334d5_b.jpg

 

SamTrans - another agency operating 24/7, runs up and down the Peninsula from San Francisco to Palo Alto

 

17732354938_b9402a3a83_b.jpg

 

17836110832_836794f0be_b.jpg

 

Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) - operates throughout Santa Clara County with extensions to Fremont BART; runs 24/7 as well.

 

17692490209_0613876da2_b.jpg

 

17879358301_475c8535cc_b.jpg

 

I am even thinking of having my own thread dedicated to this since I have so many transit images to choose from... but, it's just my first time here, so I will take my time getting to know the forums.

Your cities buses are very different from the Brazilian ones.

In the city where I live, Gravataí, in Brazil south, the only bus company is Sogil (Sociedade de Ônibus Gigante Ltda., in English, Giant Bus Society Ltd., this company name is another story). It has urban buses, most of them are Marcopolo models, like Torino or Viale. They make routes inside the city and to Porto Alegre, my State principal city, stopping many times. They have some express lines to Porto Alegre too, with Marcopolo Ideales and Viaggios.

The urban buses have an all-blue livery, it's a standardized paintjob of urban buses of cities near Porto Alegre. The express ones have a very nice yellow and brown livery.

 

Porto Alegre buses operate only urban lines. They are consortia of many merged companies.

The consortia are Carris (created in 1872 with trams pulled by mules!), STS (that makes the city's southern lines), Unibus and Conorte (northern lines).

They all have a standardized livery. But each consortia have some color differences.

The buses models are very different. It can be Marcopolo, Caio, Neobus, Comil, etc.

 

I was thinking of starting to take photos of buses... what do you guys you think about it? :)

Here in New York City, we have a couple different types of busses you commonly see. I've never actually ridden one since the subway is 24 hours, but you do see a lot of them.

 

The busses that run in the nice parts of the city:

The busses that run in the s***ty parts of the city:

And the longer-distance busses that run between the different boroughs and out to the suburbs:
