The Wright Commander was a low-floor single-decker bus body built on the DAF/VDL SB200 chassis by Wrightbus between 2002 and 2007.[1]

History

Visually and structurally, it is a larger version of the Wright Cadet. Along with the Cadet, it perpetuated the 'Classic' styling for several years after the Scania (Axcess-Floline) and Volvo (Renown) based equivalents had been phased out. Of the 315 produced, 288 were purchased by Arriva including 188 for its Netherlands subsidiary.[2][3][4]

The Commander was superseded by the Pulsar.
