I know but I have a short attention span due to having a Intellectual disability witch I got diagnosed with at around 6 months old so I don't have the attention span to search all current and historic fleets

Perhaps you could find someone on Airtasker that could work it out for you?

This would of been the summery of accessible buses doing route work in Sydney in April or May 1999 when the STA took on delivery of O405NH CNG prototype 1108 witch is now 2000
71 Scania L113CRL Ansair Orana
64 Volvo B10BLE APG Orana
17 Mercedes Benz Custom Coaches 550
2 Volvo B10L Volgren CR221L
1 Volvo B6BLE Volgren CR221L
Total 145

Note I didn't add the 3 O405NH Custom 550s that were being used by Westbus for their Ansett tarmac shuttle contract and the 6 ramp equipped L113CRL Oranas that the STA were using for the Sydney explorer/Bondi explorer services as these 9 buses weren't being used on revenue service route work at the time
