Refer here for full ACT Bus photo submission conditions.

Photos can be submitted four ways: (1) by posting to this forum topic (2) by posting on ACT Bus Facebook page (and mentioning POTM) (3) by tweeting to @actbus or @actbusspotter (4) by contacting ACT Bus (submit a "contact us" form, send a message to our Facebook page or send me a Private Message) - and we'll send you an email address.

Unhosted photos may be uploaded into the ACT Bus Gallery which will apply a watermark. Requests to remove the watermark will not be considered.

* This month we are seeking photos of ANY Irisbus Agora Line with Hanover LED desto display (display must be visible in the photo). If you submit a photo (or two) meeting this criterion, you may post up to three photos but you may only submit a maximum of 2 photos of the same bus.

To ensure consistency, photos must be displayed with a width of 640 (or height if 640 if a "portrait" aspect) - photos wider than 640 are required to use the option width=640 or height=640 in the image tag. For example: [img width=640] instead of [img].

Submissions close midnight 27 October, Australian Eastern daylight-savings Time.

Voting will commence on 28 October. Voting will close on 1 November.

Something a little different for once. A very gala gold Mercedes-Benz Coach outside the Narrabundah Motel on Jerrabomberra Ave.
I couldn't find any fleet number on it. All I could find was the company (Fun Over Fifty Pty Ltd Charters and Tours Queensland) and the bus is a IRIZAR i6 model.
