Quote from: Bus 503 on February 22, 2019, 07:40:50 PMHas anyone seen 491 in service lately? I haven't seen it or tracked it for a long time.
Quote from: triumph on February 22, 2019, 10:46:33 PMWhat is a long time? I have a ride record on 9th November last year.

Quote from: Bus 503 on March 17, 2019, 07:08:15 PMThanks for the photo, Sylvan. Interesting that it was parked next to 381, which is another bus that I hadn't seem in service since February. Though I believe it recommenced service this week (please correct me if you have sightings of 381 between February 2019 and before March 13th, 2019).I haven't seem 491 at all recently, so I am still asking for sightings of it in service.Other buses I haven't seen and am looking for sightings of (in service) are 382 (no sightings since mid February), and 441 (have not sighted it this month).
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on March 29, 2019, 05:09:51 PMCan't seem to find the post about bus names, so I thought I'd mention that I saw 538 having a name, don't remember what it was though sorry, other than something hyphenated.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on April 21, 2019, 08:14:25 AMI am suspecting that with the commencement of the new network with reduced bus requirements, that Tuggeranong may become a 100% fully low floor, air conditioned depot at all times; ...
Quote from: Barry Drive on April 21, 2019, 02:38:35 PMThe new network has reduced bus requirements?What's your source?
Quote from: Toyota Camry on April 21, 2019, 09:03:54 PMMy source is the Canberra Times; there is no additional funding allocated to bus services, however service kilometres are now spread out further through the week. This means there will be a reduced bus requirement on weekdays, and an increased bus requirement on weekends compared to present; this leaves the Renault PR100.3s in particular extremely likely to disappear after next Friday.

Quote from: Bus 503 on May 14, 2019, 09:05:05 PMI think I saw 491 today turning into Alexander Street from Mugga Way at 16:30.I was quite far away from it, so I couldn't see the fleet number, but what caught my eye was an all green back with a circular shape (presumably the 75th bus aware).I'm not sure of any buses that run services at that time and along Mugga Way, so regardless of whether it was 491, I'm not sure what the bus was doing (charter?).

Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on May 25, 2019, 12:33:56 AMLast night the driver I was with told me ... 40 Renaults would be returning to service soon ... from Fyshwick.
Quote from: Bus 503 on July 04, 2019, 04:58:51 PMWell, I'm now looking for sightings of not 491, but 492. I haven't seem it at all in June and up to now.
