Re: Ventura Group News 2019

one has to wonder if Seaford and Rosebud will remain standalone. Seaford has a number of 782s that start/finish at Balnarring and 781s from Mt Martha, and Rosebud has a number of 788s that start/end at Frankston. I would think its unlikely they will change but still food for thought. without doing ...

Re: Ventura Group news January - June 2016

Former Dandenong bus 627 (2010 Volvo B7r) is now at Rosebud due to the new 887 Rosebud to Monash Uni service. Also bus 474 seems to be making a come back, both 474 & 491 Scania 14.5m seem to be on the 788 at the same time this week. Haven't seen 484 though. Nice to see more passengers are able to ge...

Re: PTV livery list

One more into PTV: #837 (Scania K230UB, Volgren Malaysia "CR228L") - Lilydale. Also 1041 and 1042 [King Long] moved from Rosebud to Dandenong and Seaford respectively, and Penbus livery removed. Jumped the gun there... 1042 is still currently in penbus livery, and still living at Rosebud with a new...

Re: CDC Victoria Group news January - June 2015

I won't speculate, I don't have hard facts only read the information quickly, it was Volgren documentation which maybe I misread. I was just testing water to see if someone had the knowledge, would be nice to see Doubles in Melbourne, but unlikely as many routes have low bridges and Melbourne has a ...

Re: CDC Victoria Group news January - June 2015

Does anyone know where the new Volgren Double Decker for CDC Victora is going? It's a 88 Seater with 23 Standing, sounds like a route services bus... That was for CDC Sydney, However I'm unaware that it was heading for Melbourne That makes more sense for it to be Sydney, it said CDC Victoria on the...

Re: Ventura Group news January - June 2015

There from the same bloke as did transdevs. I think Ventura should just keep the standard as per the rest of the depots Do you know this or are you assuming? This bus had been driving around since being updated to the Ventura Standard like this... http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/05/15/da18d3b03f3...

Re: Transdev Melbourne news July - December 2013

No longer are Volgren bodied smart buses unusual on the 903, even the occasional blue bubble or cb30 is rare but still not that unusual but today is a Yellow CB30 bus 517 on the 903, that's a little unusual still... Don't think I've seen a Yellow bus on the 903 before

Maybe this was the cause of Burnside showing up on 216 Destos, other than the fact it doesn't actually go to Caroline Springs http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Melbourne_bus_routes I seriously hope the person working on the destos does not get all his source information from Wikipedia only!

Re: Transdev Melbourne news July - December 2013

The Ventura logo was 0002. It wasn't commonly used, the Ventura drivers handbook dictated that "Not in Service" (0001) be used. Transdev drivers handbook states that destos be set to either "Not in Service" (0001) which switches between the Transdev logo, "Special" (0006), or blanked. Smart Mercs s...
