Featured Bus - January / February 2018
ZIB-123

Between December 1967 and 1969, ACTION received 14 AEC Swift MP3R buses with body by Athol Hedges.

The Swift was a rear-engined alternative to the AEC Reliance. Initially ACTION ordered four Swifts (Buses 121 122 123 & 125) to evaluate alongside the mid-engined Reliance with the same body and engine specification (AEC AH505). These were the first rear-engined buses to operate in Canberra and were among the first in Australia.

In 1969 a further 10 units were ordered (Buses 145-154). Unlike later Swifts in the fleet which had a Wilson semi-automatic (self changing gears) transmission, these 14 buses were fitted with a manual gearbox.

The Hedges-bodied AEC Swifts only saw 10 years of service, having been withdrawn in 1977 – 1978.

About Us

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 599" or "TRAM 201" (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.
