New bus route 531 operated by Bus Queensland (Ipswich) started today with a new volgren optimus B8 with allover wrap advertising the new route from yamanto to Springfield central. Interesting driver security screen fitted.

T1045 can be rostered on non-CG runs (I think the main reason for it being only partially covered).

And in regards to 1040, as all of 21 of the new Optimus buses have been delivered to Toowong (as 2819 has now been transferred to Virgina), they have started to remove the skin of some of the diesel CityGliders (replaced by the Optimus) to send some of the CNGs to Garden City to replace the Scanias that are being retired. Interesting to note that 2839 and 2040 haven't as yet had the CityGlider livery applied yet.

Enthusiasts Guide says that only up to 2835 have been skinned up so maybe they're gonna leave a few to run around naked :lol:

I think 2839 onwards will be normal livery as 1030-1048 (19 buses) will be replaced by 2820-2838 (19 buses) on the CityGlider.

Up to at least 2844 are already registered.

By my calculations, 2849 should be the last delivery of 60 rigid-equivalent buses for this financial year - 10 artics (2841-2850) and 45 rigids (2805-2849).
