Not sure what it is and if it's a demonstrator but I spotted a brand new, bustech I think bus on the hornibrook in full green and white translink/Hornibrook bus lines livery. Didn't notice a fleet number either. Will look around for it over the weekend.

Who says they've "given up" ? Perhaps Volgren never had any slots left this year and Bustech did.

Could be the case but with another make of body/chassis in stock, I thought they'd keep the spares etc easy by having the same as they have had before.
Wonder what Volgren have on as a guy I know who used to work there got made redundant as not enough work! Interesting.

A new update has seen a new Volgten bus numbered 165 with a new style rego plate. It’s safe to assume that 163 and 164 have also been used for something too.

163, 164 and 165 have all arrived with a fourth on the way.

Seen at least 3 North Lakes buses and 2 Clontarf buses without front rego plates since Monday. Any reason or is there some plate thieves on the go??
