Bus 129 was a Renault PR100.3


  • The vehicle's VIN is incorrectly recorded by ACT RTA as VF6PS08A200000004. This was due to an error on the Austral Denning body plate.
  • Bus 129 was originally an "Easy Access" bus which seated 43 (designated as PR100.3a); it featured plug doors, stepless entry, Tieman electric ramp, kneeling suspension and two wheelchair spaces.
  • In approx. 2007, Bus 129 was modified to remove the access ramp and wheelchair spaces, the bus seated 49 with a combination of Vogel and Saydair Metro seats.
  • Its Southport Engineering flip-dot destination displays were replaced by Hanover LED equipment in November 2012.
  • Between December 2017 and July 2018, Bus 129 was stripped for parts at Belconnen Depot.
