Do we know if the 995 thru 998 are going to be run by artW buses? If not will they just be EURO's or STAG's or something (I havent got many artW's lately and I was hoping to get some when I am free (i.e. the weekend)).

Good to see the Nightrider being used for this too.

Some useful Park & Ride shuttles there (not sarcasm).  Pity they don't run them DURING WEEKDAY PEAK when they would be even more useful.

My guess would be artics.

Agreed. That'd be good. I know theres already the 726 for Cooleman and North Weston and similar circumstances elswhere, but Im sure it'd make the park and ride model more attractive...A daytime service for that North Weston one would be alright too (not that that is strictly relevant to this...)

I don't ask if absolutely everything is sarcasm by the way...and considering I think they are actually decent runs I don't think I would've thought that anyway...

In case you didn't make it to the Mulicultural Festival today King Of Buses. All shuttles were artics with special destinations programmed in.

For those timetable collectors, a little timetable was produced for the shuttles.

Thanks. I did see a couple of artics but didn't go on any. I didn't see these timetables though...were these the same as the one they had online?

i hope they are, but a lot of runs were quite badly late... especially in the morning into the city, and in the arvo away from the city
