Get to know more about our current fleet

Our current fleet of buses was custom made for ZUPCO by a Chinese vehicle manufacturer, First Automotive Group Corporation. The company which has been in existence since 1956 was previously known as First Automotive Works (FAW), from which we derive the name that is on our blue and gold fleet.

You will be interested to know that cooperative agreements and joint ventures are not a new thing for FAW as the company has collaborated with many different vehicle manufacturers as well as companies associated with the motor trade industry. These companies include amongst others, Volkswagen, Toyota, Mazda and General Motors.

Being custom made for us, our current fleet is well kept and maintained using on-site technical back up and support by a dedicated team from FAW who work closely with our engineers to ensure that all our buses are in to notch condition to ferry our valued customers to all destinations inside and outside our country.

The next chapter therefore in our close working with FAW is the launch of our Lux Line buses.
