Parramatta - Beecroft Route 181 Operator

Postby BusBuddy » Thu Sep 11, 2014 5:51 pm

I remember as a kid in the Mid 6's the colour of the Buses on the Parramatta - Beecroft route 181 were olive green and cream. Is my memory correct. Did someone else operate this route before Harris Park Transport? If so who and are there any photo's available?

Robert Henderson has compiled a great read of Sydney Bus route history at http://www.sydneybusroutes.com/

http://www.sydneybusroutes.com/images/P ... 201960.pdf shows that "Watson, WP & Hulme, E" operated route 181 between Parramatta – Nth Rocks – Beecroft in 1960. There are other lists and more information available on the site.
