PS. The bodywork looks like fibreglass. AVM has a steel chassis that would still show around seats. Here the seats are exposed meaning fibreglass had disintegrated

The seats certainly are not AVM. Furthermore AVM don't have luggage boot.

So in all likelihood the bus is Chinese Yutong. 65 passenger capacity
