Photo of the Month nominations are now open for May.

The rules:

● two* photographs may be submitted by any one person, provided they have not been submitted before

  ◦ * This month we are seeking photos of Current AOA Buses[1]. 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.

● 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
    ▪ the fleet or registration number is identifiable (or supplied by photographer if not visible in photograph)

● photos narrower than 640 pixels will not be accepted

If possible, please supply date or month of photo.

Refer here for full ACT Bus photo submission conditions.

Photos can be submitted by replying to this forum topic; if you require the photo to be hosted, post to the topic without the images and send a message to ACT Bus on Instagram or Facebook, or to me through the forum. 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 of 640 if a "portrait" aspect) - photos larger 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 April, Australian Eastern standard time, unless fewer than 6 photos have been submitted.

Voting will commence on 27 April. Voting will close 1 May.

The winning photo will be loaded to the actbus.net website and posted to ACT Bus on Facebook and Instagram. 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 and Instagram pages.

1 - Must be an AOA Bus at any time during April 2021.

To start us off, here's Bus 663 on Cohen Street (April 2021):


BUS 663 is seen at Gungahlin Place

BUS 716 is seen outside the Legislative Assembly following the completion of an R5 showing off the new destination signs available using the Woden to City West sign variation for the R5

One from my archives, BUS 649 is seen laying over at Tuggeranong Interchange

King of Buses

Continuing with the new desto theme...

394 in its Baptist Care AOA sits on the Piano Keys at Woden displaying the new "Set Down Only" desto on April 10th.

567 sits on Nomad Drive at the CBR Airport, displaying one of the new route number "Bus Full" signs.

And 720 on O'Halloran Cct, Kambah, still with the old desto file.
