Independent transport videos cameras first visited Belfast in 2003 when there were Leyland Leopards and Bristol REs were still around. Now in 2007, the enthusiast will find a very different city. The Leopards and REs are no more, the red and ivory livery of Citybus, an inheritance from Belfast Corporation days, is almost a memory and the two-tone green livery so much in evidence in 2003 is rapidly being replaced by a bright magenta, grey and white scheme. So what could we do but take another trip across the Irish Sea to see how its buses have changed in 4 years. In 2007, Citybus has been branded Metro, with the new magenta livery, double-deckers are everywhere and the Ulsterbus fleet is also being updated with new vehicles in blue. With 285 new vehicles on order, the next big casualty will be the fleet of Ulsterbus Leyland Tigers so we have included some of those on routes into the city from nearby towns, as well as rides on two of them.
