When are the B8 Artics coming?
Edit: Toowong is in surplus with buses right now so it is increasingly unlikely that we will see them actually...

Toowong will see some more MAN's go to GC, I currently have T with:

MAN 18.310 CNG- 1200-1202, 1204-1299, 1346 and 1347, total 101
MAN 18.310 Diesel- 1016-1018, 1030-1066, total 40
Volvo B8RLE- 2820-2862, total 43

TOTAL 184 which is above the average of around 175
I expect to see 1293-1299 and also 1346+1347 go to GC and Toowong welcome up to 2869 in B8's

Also, the new B8's are exceptionally bumpy. I know that they may be made for the full load, but I went on an empty 2854 and you couldn't hear the engine sound because of the bumpiness. Furthermore, the panel was not installed properly, which I think is a major flaw as it was really uncomfortable to look at.

And I just noted 2817 about to begin a P426 to Chapel Hill. So 2817-19 are all at Toowong.

2856 now has double single ads
2812 is now parked at Toowong garage. Don't get me wrong, it could be going to workshops.

1298 is now at G as well.

Unusual sight for University term this evening where three consecutive Route 66 buses arriving at Southbank around 6.00pm from UQ were standard rigid buses, rather than tags or artics.

Well, it looks like 2812 was going to Workshops for an AoA- no transferral...

Interesting - that makes four transfers out of Carina without any replacements.

Been spotted in service this afternoon.

Also, reports made by Jon Sri (Woolloongabba councillor) reveal that B8 artics will be operating on the Blue City Glider within the next 6 months.

That's probably where the next batch of B8s (probs going to T) are heading... CityGlider

And finally, reports made of a new bus route from Pullenvale to Indooroopilly made by Council yesterday.
