It was the first of an additional order of 15 low-floor Euro V diesel MAN 18.320s for delivery between November 2011 and May 2012 (following on from Buses 390-463). It features several changes from the earlier batch of MANs including LED lights in the driver’s cabin, external CCTV cameras and Prima “EasySTOP” bus stop signal buttons; the ultrasonic bus stop buttons proved to be unreliable and were replaced with Teknoware wireless buttons which use a radio frequency signal.
Bus 491 included decals to denote it was the 75th Custom-bodied MAN delivered to ACTION. While it was the 75th diesel MAN A69/CB60, it is actually the 96th MAN chassis to be bodied by Custom/Custom Coaches for ACTION (not counting demonstrator and evaluation buses).
Between June 2017 and July 2018, Bus 491 had an all over advertising wrap promoting the Park & Ride / Bike & Ride / Park & Pedal initiatives of Transport Canberra.
ACT Bus Fleetwiki is the most comprehensive source of fleet information for Transport Canberra - both ACTION buses and Canberra Metro. Our information is presented in a number of ways: summary tables, lists and individual vehicle pages - which include a photograph and additional information. Articles are linked together through categories so that you can find all vehicles that fit certain criteria.
How to search: Enter the vehicle you are searching for into the search box in the format of "BUS 424" or "TRAM 007" (where the number is the vehicle's fleet number). Since many fleet numbers have been re-used, a sequence number will be included for each time the number has been used (e.g. BUS 350 (2) ). You can also browse through the pages and categories above.
How to submit changes: Edit access has been restricted to protect the integrity of our data. If you would like to notify us of a change or an error, please use our Contact Us webpage.
