The Wright Pathfinder was a low entry and low floor single-decker bus body built on Dennis Lance SLF and Scania N113CRL chassis by Wrightbus between 1993 and 1995.[1][2]

History

Of the 95 Pathfinders produced, London Regional Transport subsidiaries purchased 38 on Dennis Lance chassis and all 30 Scania N113CRLs. They were London's first low-floor buses. The first examples were operated by London United on route 120 and CentreWest on route 222.[3][4]

Other purchasers (all on Dennis Lances) included Badgerline, London & Country and Northern General.[4] The Pathfinder was succeeded in 1995 by the Axcess-Ultralow.[5]
