Bus 491 is a MAN A69 18.320 HOCL-NL/E5 (Euro V) based at Tuggeranong Depot.
- Bus 491 arrived at Woden Depot on 24 November 2011.
- It entered service at Tuggeranong Depot on 21 December 2011.
- Bus 491 is the first vehicle of a batch of 15 MAN 18.320s ordered by ACTION for delivery between November 2011 and May 2012. This batch features several changes from the initial build of 74 (Buses 390 - 463).
- Bus 491 features decals proclaiming it to be the 75th MAN bus built for ACTION, but this is not correct. It is the 75th MAN A69 Diesel bus (including Buses 392 and 393 are which are 18.310 Euro IV models). If all MAN buses built by Custom Coaches for ACTION were counted, it would be the 96th bus (including five SL200s built in 1981 and sixteen 18.310 CNG buses which entered the fleet in 2008-09). Bus 672 (SG192) is excluded as this bus was built as a MAN demonstrator, rather than specifically for ACTION.
