MAN City Coaches started back in early 90's when Tours getting ready busy for big cities for Charters and Tours and Sightseeing.
Back in Early 90's CTB Coachlines (Christchurch Transport Board) and Leopard Coachlines had few Coaches for Charter heading diffrent spots in Canterbury plains to take people to Adventures and Challenges to Sightseeing and try something diffrent instead of being at home.
CTB Coachlines Leased handful of MAN buses to Scenic Coachlines and few other operators and few came back to CTB now is Redbus today.
Leopard Coachlines had few MAN coaches they normally heading to Hills for Canterbury High Country for Sightseeing and Ski Trips if or not the Trans Alpine Train wasnt running or not.
These MAN cachlines were built at Coachwork or Designline just like the Urban Buses were gettig built.
