Bus 131 was a Renault PR100.3


  • The vehicle's VIN is incorrectly recorded by ACT RTA as VF6PS08A200000006. This was due to an error on the Austral Denning body plate.
  • Bus 131 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 131 was modified to remove the access ramp and wheelchair spaces, and install additional seats.
  • In September 2014, its Southport Engineering flip-dot destination display was replaced by Hanover LED.
  • This bus was fitted with a Sportworks DL2 bike rack.
  • Between December 2019 and January 2020, Bus 131 was stripped for parts at Belconnen Depot before it was scrapped.
