Bus 990 was a Renault PR100.3


  • Bus 990 was the second Natural Gas powered Renault PR100.3 delivered to ACTION (BUS 991 being the first).
  • Its engine was a Renault diesel engine converted to run on CNG by Transcom Engine Corporation. It was later modified using CNG cylinder heads supplied by Renault.
  • During 2007, 990 and sister unit 991 were withdrawn from service at Tuggeranong Depot for conversion to operate on diesel. This resulted in the removal of the roof mounted gas cylinders and pods, although a lower internal ceiling line remained.
  • Once the conversion to diesel was complete it was transferred to Belconnen Depot.
  • Bus 990 was fitted with a Sportworks DL2 bike rack on 27 September 2011.
  • It was sent to Access Recycling for scrapping in August 2014.
