The Volvo B59 is a city bus chassis developed in the 1971. It was the first Volvo city bus with low floor. 177 right hand drive chassis of this type are exported to Australia during 1976-79. Most of them have been withdrawn by the original owners and are converted to school buses by their second-hand owners.
Hundreds of B59s were also exported to Portugal to Companhia Carris de Ferro de Lisboa. A little less than 200 buses are still in service.
There is a roof-top ventilation unit called the evaporative cooling system.
