I just came across some old info which I'll be putting onto the website today.


This section lists the buses in the ACTION fleet at 8 July 1994. It includes depot allocations and buses in AOA. Find it under the "Fleet" submenu of History.

Not a full network, just the changes made, including fares and services. There's also a brief part about light rail. Find it under the Networks submenu.

They should be up by 5.00 today bang any unforseen circumstances. Feel free to discuss them here!

They're now online.

Interesting points:

Looking at the depot allocation it looks like most buses have not moved since 1994! obviously the Woden buses were split betweem N amd T but many buses are still in the same depot ten years on. We've only seen some more major shifting in the lst few years as the Irises and Scanias have come along.

And just look at the number of AOA's we had back then.. *sigh* those were the days..

This section lists all school services (Excluding Government Colleges and Independent Schools) as at Term 1, 1998. This is prior to the introduction of Network 98.

Also new is "Network 98 Proposal". Found in the "Old Networks" secton, it is a letter to Canberra Residents posted on ACTION's website in March 1998
