Photographer's Note

The local public transportation vehicle, locally known as "Nysse", which is actually a shortened version of the saying "Now it (comes)" in Finnish ("Nyt se").

The bus in this picture is owned by Tampere city public transportation and is a Scania-based vehicle with Lahti Scala body from 2002. It is 14,5 meters long and can carry more than 50 people (52 seats). It is a very typical representative of a citybus you can spot here nowadays. The look is quite futuristic for a bus model that is nearly ten years old.

Near the place the picture was taken used to be Volvo's bus body plant and it was very interesting to see new buses driving by (I guess they used public roads to test drive them) every now and then. The plant was closed in August, 2008 and the production of their 8700-model continues in Wroclaw. Poland.
