Jelcz M11 #272

History of bus Jelcz M11

80s in Poland was the crisis time. Martial law and international sanctions made impact on economic situation in Poland. This caused that Mielec engine factory did not managed to produce needed number of vehicles SW680 and Jelcz factory did not manage to equip their buses with imported parts. But in central planned economy the most important was to implement plan (so in this case to produce planned number of buses). Because it was not possible to produce needed number of Jelcz PR110 and there were some ikaruses on the street it was decided to cooperate with hungarian manufacturer of buses. In agrement signed in 1983 ikarus had to provide bus chassis with engine, gearbox and axles and JZS (Jelcz factory) built completed buses on it using body of modified Jelcz PR110.

That way produced buses had parameters of Ikarus 260 with body style derived from Jelcz PR110. Discussionable is choice of completation of this bus because in Poland better gearboxes were produced (licensed ZF in Tczew) but it was decided to put harmfull Csepel construction. It was possible to use 12meters ikarus 250 chassis but the simplest chassis of Ikarus 260 was used. Anyway bus produced in this way was simple and quite reliable which dominated urban transport in whole country. In Wroclaw to MPK 118 items of this type were delivered and few of them had Dolnoslaskie Linie Autobusowe and Marco-Pole. Outside Wrocław on Low Silesia these buses we could met almost anywhere but till now all of them were removed from service (Świdnica (2009), Wałbrzych (2008), Jelenia Góra (2014), Dzierżoniów (2011), Bolesławiec (2003), Kłodzko (2009), Legnica (2006), Lubin (2006), Oława (2003), Wołów (2006) i Wrocław (2005)). Our bus was bought in Głogów and cames from year 2003. In 2003 it went through repair in Kapena and it got plastic front and back then.
