The Wright Handybus was a single-deck bus body built primarily on Dennis Dart chassis by Wright between 1990 and 1995. It was also built on a small number of Leyland Swift chassis, in which form it had a higher floorline. It has a bolted aluminium structure.
The outward styling is quite plain, with a flat front. Two alternative windscreen styles were offered; some vehicles had a single-piece flat windscreen, whilst others had two separate flat windscreens with that on the driver's side raked back, reminiscent of some 1950s single deckers.
London Buses was the first and also the largest customer, buying a fleet of nearly two hundred Handybus-bodied Darts. Go-Ahead Northern also bought over eighty, and Ulsterbus and Citybus had forty between them.
