Quote from: Barry Drive on November 25, 2019, 05:06:16 PMIt is believed/hoped that the 16 PR100.3s will be withdrawn this time
Quote from: Toyota Camry on December 01, 2019, 08:44:46 AMIt has been reported to myself that Renault PR100.3s produce a smaller number of carbon emissions per kilometre than the older PR100.2 models; it is in the interest of our planet and for humanity that the PR100.3s should be the last Renaults to remain in service to help tackle climate change.
Quote from: triumph on April 29, 2020, 03:36:08 PMIf the present trend continues then PR3s are likely to disappear from service within the next 2 months. So, for any regular service rides required in a PR3, it might be very wise to arrange for that urgently, (and immediately if particular fleet numbers are wanted).
Quote from: Barry Drive on June 13, 2020, 10:54:42 AMThere are now only 5 PR100.3s remaining in service
Quote from: Barry Drive on June 13, 2020, 10:54:42 AMThere are now only 5 PR100.3s remaining in service.I would estimate there's only two weeks until they are all withdrawn.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on June 18, 2020, 03:56:45 PMNevermind, they're out again now on a bunch of school runs.
Quote from: Qashqai on June 18, 2020, 04:26:51 PMHi All,I know the ACTBUS Wiki is more resourceful for withdrawal dates but I thought I'd say that BUS-107, BUS-108, BUS-109, BUS-110, BUS-111, BUS-112, BUS-113, BUS-114, BUS-115, BUS-116, BUS-117, BUS-121, BUS-122, BUS-123, BUS-124 and BUS-125 are all still currently registered as per the ACT Government's free online rego check (all are PR100-3s). Through rego check I've found out that some of the PR100-2s have been cancelled in the past 9 months :-(.
Quote from: Qashqai on June 22, 2020, 09:26:44 PMHi Bus 400,You know of the ACT Rego Check too :-)? No worries, I was monitoring buses last August that didn't get renewed (BUS-148 to be exact) so I've gotten the month wrong, sorry. Do you think ACTION will renew the registrations of the remaining PR100-2s?....and PR100-3s? I compose spreadsheets of (usually latest issued Y Series registration numbers) but am also working on having all 1000 'BUS' numbers documented (using ACT Rego Check, ACTBUS Fleet Wiki and an OpenOffice spreadsheet). In doing so I've noticed that ACTION have disposed of some of the newer PR100-2s and retained some of the older PR100-2s! I've also noticed the motor registry have misspelled some buses' details. For example BUS-310 is a 2002 Irisbus Agaoraline and BUS-104 is a 1994 Renault PRI00-3 :->.
Quote from: Snorzac on June 28, 2020, 10:27:25 PMI would guess tomorrow morning will be the last operation of 100.3s in service
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on July 05, 2020, 03:26:41 PMI was going to put this in the tours board, but none of the posts seemed appropriate. If there's going to be a final tour/trip on a PR3 sometime in the near future, can those of us who are not in the loop be notified? Just so that there's not a repeat of finding out a week later that 986 had a secret farewell, leading to suicidal thoughts.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on July 05, 2020, 06:11:52 PMIf a private outing on a bus is organised by a group of friends, they are not legally required to open this outing to the general public...

Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on July 06, 2020, 04:09:36 PMI'd buy one, I have the money - only issue of course is I have no where to put it. I would buy one of each of the ex-fleet if I could and although it would be nice to keep them going, just having them would be enough to keep me happy - I'll have to keep dreaming.
Quote from: Qashqai on July 18, 2020, 10:02:06 PMHi All,Just a quick note to say there is a Renault PR100-3 parked on the nature strip of Osburn Drive in MacGregor with no number plates or fleet numbers.I don't have proper photos only dashcam footage, which you can view snippets of here.
Quote from: Stan butler on July 20, 2020, 04:48:16 AMWe've already mentioned that one but it seems the posts talking about that particular bus and location have been deleted.
Quote from: Qashqai on July 18, 2020, 10:02:06 PMI also found a re-registered PR100-2 while searching newly registered ACT Heavy Vehicle plates through ACT Rego Check a few nights ago. On the 6th of July 2020, a 1992 Renault PR100-2 was registered with XA-11AG, for 12 months expiring 05/07/2021 with NRMA MAI (formally known as CTPI).
Quote from: Bus 400 on June 20, 2020, 05:18:51 PMAround late July you'll be able to notice that rego has been extended to the following year. You can then use this the rego check website to see who's going off to the Fyshwick Retirement Village.
