● photos must be "owned" by the person submitting it (if not, you must have the permission of the photographer to submit the photo - and identify the photographer)

● photos must be have taken legally - ACT Bus does not encourage or condone trespassing

● submitted photographs must prominently feature:

  ◦ public transport infrastructure (such as bus stop, bus station, bus depot, Light Rail line, tram depot) within the ACT / Queanbeyan region (location must be specified)


  ◦ a bus, tram or ancillary vehicle from the ACT or Queanbeyan (taken within the region or a former ACT/Queanbeyan bus) where -
    ▪ the vehicle is in focus

If possible, please supply date or month of photo.

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 @BarryDrive2601 (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.

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 26 September, Australian Eastern standard time.

Voting will commence on 27 September. Voting will close 1 October.

The winning photo will be loaded to the website and posted to ACT Bus on Facebook. The winner and runner(s)-up will also be included in the Photo of the Year vote. By submitting a photo, you are giving permission for it to be loaded onto the ACT Bus Gallery and Facebook page.

Gotta Start with a Renault, otherwise why bother...

930 outside the National Museum on 17th September.

From one of the oldest to the newest
721 at the City on 17th September.

A Rosa posing perfectly for me on 18th September at 10:33am. Sorry, didn't catch which one it was. Hopefully someone with a good eye might be able to tell which one it is, I don't pay much attention to these mini-buses.

As to avoid breaching the privacy rule for everyone to see, I have not included the times the top two photos were taken. If you wish to upload these photos I will then disclose the times privately if necessary.

Voting is now open.

The unidentified Rosa is excluded from the vote because the registration was not supplied in accordance with the rules.
