An ABQ RIDE Thomas/Dennis SLF200 used on the free D-Ride route

Thomas Dennis LLC was created in 1999 as a joint venture between Thomas Built Buses, Inc. (Freightliner) of the United States and Dennis Bus (Mayflower Corporation) of the United Kingdom.

The company manufactured a version of the Dennis Dart SLF, engineered for the North American market, in a new facility located in Greensboro, North Carolina. The SLF200 was reengineered in 2002 to use a Mercedes-Benz engine and electrics. Mayflower had hoped to develop a 40ft transit bus, but instead DaimlerChrysler subsequently bought Orion Bus Industries. As a result, Mayflower sold its 49% stake and the name of the company was changed to DaimlerChrysler Commercial Buses North Carolina in 2003.
