Quote from: triumph on August 12, 2018, 10:09:21 PMDefinitely something going on. Artic on 906 this morning, then cought 3 L94UBs in succession during today's journey. Saw a number of PR2s, with at least one on a rte 300. Irisbus 303 and 308 seen in City. Noted Bustech and Volgren rigids in use too. Buses were moving about in the Belconnen Depot. Buses ridden came from both depot allocations. All very unusual. Anyone spot a STAG or a PR3?

Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on August 13, 2018, 10:17:14 AMWell I spoke to a driver yesterday and he said it was due to the refuellers not being available until today, but very interesting that the choices would be to go with Renaults though.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on November 17, 2018, 10:17:29 AM673 & 674 are both running route 200 today. I am unsure if these artics will appear on any suburban routes; they may be operating modified shifts confining them to routes 200, 300 & 938.
Quote from: Busnerd on November 18, 2018, 04:53:54 PMI saw another on a suburban run, forget which one, but would assume that some drivers who had a few 300's on their shifts were allocated artics.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on January 01, 2019, 09:55:37 PMIt seems that the Renault PR100.3s are taking a break at the moment, as is much of Canberra's population; perhaps they too are down the coast. None are believed to have operated since prior to Christmas; or potentially even earlier.It is looking like none will operate until January 14th at the earliest; possibly not until as late as January 29th if they are not used in the school holiday roster.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on January 09, 2019, 01:53:48 PM537 will be commencing a trip on route 80 within the next hour, a very rare utilization of an artic on this route; due to this site's censorship policy, I will not be revealing which service.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on January 10, 2019, 06:45:46 PMThere are numerous routes that are never regularly serviced by artics; these include 12, 26, 80 and many Xpresso services.
Quote from: King of Buses on January 11, 2019, 07:26:19 AMThe 12 and 26 do actually have a few artic trips normally.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on January 11, 2019, 11:26:45 AMI believe you are confusing the 12 and 15; there is normally one artic that makes it to Spence Terminus during the afternoon peak, operating as route 315.
Quote from: Bus 503 on January 20, 2019, 07:34:18 PM509 was operating route 953s in the late morning today (Sunday).
Quote from: Toyota Camry on January 21, 2019, 05:34:35 PMIt is not believed that an Irisbus Agoraline, Renault PR100.2 or Renault PR100.3 has ever operated on this route...
Quote from: Toyota Camry on January 21, 2019, 05:34:35 PM53 and 953 is a high importance route in the network; along with the 3, 11 & 200, it is one of the only bus services that is guaranteed to be operated by low floor, air conditioned buses at all times. It is not believed that an Irisbus Agoraline, Renault PR100.2 or Renault PR100.3 has ever operated on this route; it will be interesting to see if the replacement service maintains this priority in the new network, as is combining with parts of nearby routes that offen suffer older vehicles.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on January 22, 2019, 09:24:54 AMIt was announced in 2005 that all 300 series routes would be fully low floor, wheelchair accessible and have bike racks available at all times, at the time, the only buses meeting the task were 20 Irisbus Agoralines and 50 Scania L94UBs; 14 years later, despite the delivery of hundreds of extra suitable buses, they have given up on trying to achieve this goal.
Quote from: King of Buses on January 21, 2019, 08:43:02 PMThe 11 and 81 I believe are the only routes which are "required" to always be operated by low floors.
Quote from: Bus 400 on January 22, 2019, 04:55:02 PMAFAIK, the 62/962 are a low floor required run. This is due to the ACT Government wheelchair repair & mobility hire place at the old Village Creek Primary School. But it does help out a certain passenger on the run as well.Sent from my SM-T810 using Tapatalk
Quote from: Toyota Camry on February 04, 2019, 08:36:07 PMIt seems that this site's censorship policy has reached new levels; it is now no longer considered acceptable to state which route that 940 operated on today. For those who did not see the previous post, you are informed that it was a very unusual sighting.
Quote from: Busfanatic101 on February 05, 2019, 07:49:26 PMFor those concerned that Volgren artics have gone AWOL 672 was in service today.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on February 06, 2019, 12:19:08 PMWould it possible that the lack of Volgren artic sightings and the bring back of unused Renault's be due to the Volgren's being fixed up in the workshops for some currently unknown reason?
Quote from: Toyota Camry on February 06, 2019, 01:56:25 PM309 is presently sitting in the layover at Woden with the engine hatch open; it may be suffering from mechanical issues.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on February 06, 2019, 01:58:55 PMAn announcement has just been made informing passengers of a cancellation of a route 25 service to Cooleman Court; as this service normally operates with an Irisbus, it is highly likely that this is linked to the failure of 309.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on February 17, 2019, 07:49:55 PMYou have not stated your point; 309 was allocated to route 25, not to breakdown, hence my posting was correct, and you were not. It is recommended that you apologise to me; as I am older, smarter and wiser than you. Additionally, it is highly unlikely that you are an EL1; personally, I am one.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on February 06, 2019, 01:58:55 PMthis service normally operates with an Irisbus
Quote from: triumph on February 16, 2019, 09:40:23 PM528 (a bendy) was noted on route 906 late this morning. An allocation due Multicultural Festival? Or what may be routine if some Rapids are to regularly get articulated buses rostered on Saturdays.::I am unsure if these are really appropriate as 'Playground' items.
Quote from: Barry Drive on February 18, 2019, 11:18:56 AMThis entire post should have been made on "Weekend Bus Reports", rather than here since artics on weekends is no longer unusual.But I'm slightly less inclined to be strict with off topic postings in "The Playground".
Quote from: Bus 503 on April 21, 2020, 11:12:52 AMLooks like 305 and 312 are running route 903 (Ginninderry Loop) today.
