Quote from: Murray on February 10, 2017, 12:08:07 PMMaybe they did this so they can have a artic in the new 'TC blue' livery.
Quote from: Sir Pompously on February 10, 2017, 09:13:43 PMYes, I am sure they spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on a brand new bus simply to have a articulated vehicle in the new livery. I mean, it wouldn't be cheaper at all to just.... I dunno, paint up a current bus.They have bought an extra artic because it is required. They don't just buy buses because they feel like it, they buy them to meet their needs.
Quote from: triumph on February 10, 2017, 10:41:31 PMThe puzzle (at least to me) is what criteria were used to determine that another articulated bus was needed? The existing ones seem to turn up quite randomly. Are there then, certain services (probably peak hour or school) that are dedicated articulated bus runs due to need? If this was the case, then one might expect them regularly (not randomly) on the other runs the driving shifts include. This conundrum also applies to the high capacity tag steer buses.

Quote from: Buzz KillingtonThere's essentially been no increase in the number of artics in the active fleet form many years.
Quote from: Buzz Killington on February 11, 2017, 05:36:27 PMThere's also the fact that they have no spare artics in the current fleet. There's essentially been no increase in the number of artics in the active fleet form many years.
Quote from: Busnerd on April 02, 2017, 12:07:51 AMI have it on good authority that it is a Volgren and not a Bustech as Bustech do not make articulated vehicles. It would also make sense as it could double as a demonstrator for ACTION/TC to evaluate it to decide if their next order for rigids will be Volgren or Bustech.Plus the Volgren design would look amazing in TC livery.

Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on July 29, 2017, 04:04:20 AMSo, would i be right in guessing it has the TC livery?
Quote from: Barry Drive on June 30, 2017, 10:11:07 AM... and it is in TC blue livery.
