Come and join CTM on March 14 as we support Rise Above in their 2021 Cancer Convoy!
Joining around 250 trucks, CTM will be deploying our newest addition, ex ACTION Renault PR180.2 articulated 717, as well as Renault PR100.3 108.

Details are still to be finalised as they're subject to restrictions and approvals, but we plan on running a short afternoon tour with 108 and 717 after the convoy. We will be offering a pickup/drop off in the City, plus a pickup from somewhere along the convoy route, likely around Commonwealth Avenue, so people can come and watch the convoy then join us in the afternoon.
Stay tuned for further details!

Canberra Transport Museum is committed to providing a COVID safe event. All attendees must check in using the "Check In CBR" app and onboard QR code or by providing their name and contact details to museum staff, these details will be securely stored for an appropriate time frame before they are destroyed.
Additionally the following measures will apply.
• All buses will have hand sanitiser at the boarding door, it is encouraged that all attendees use this on each boarding.
• Anti-bacterial wipes will be provided should you wish to sanitise you seating area
• Canberra Transport Museum welcomes but does not mandate the use of masks
• A limit of 20 passengers on BUS 108 and 35 passengers on BUS 717 applies and will be enforced. To be fair to everyone we ask that if you are asked to change bus you do so to allow others to ride on all buses.
• When onboard the bus please keep a one seat gap between you and any other guests. Please minimise movement around the bus.
• Please keep 1.5m gap when waiting at stops or taking pictures.
Please note, these measures are current as of the time of organising this event, and may be changed with minimal notice in line with government regulations

Regrettably, our Renault PR100.3, BUS108, will not be participating in the Rise Above Cancer Convoy this weekend after recently suffering a mechanical failure.

Whilst it may have been possible to get it back on the road for this weekend, we may not have been able to achieve the perfect fix which may have resulted in further remedial works, so we have decided to get it right the first time and fix it properly!

In addition, while we are carrying out the repairs, we have also decided to take some time to assess some panel damage on the bus and carry out some other repairs. We hope to have 108 back on the road sporting her new name in the coming months! Stay tuned for further details on this!

However, despite 108 being absent, our PR180.2 BUS717 and PR100.2 BUS967 will still be partaking in the convoy on Sunday! So be sure to come on down and check them and the 500 or so other heavy vehicles and motorbikes out!

717 will still be running our mini tour in the afternoon, too.
