Yes. It is now green/silver with white fleet numbers the same as any other bus, but it does have a small 'Rockingham Shuttle' dolphin decal on the side, so looks like it'll still be stuck doing 555s for the foreseeable future.

Perth trains win Canstar Blue survey sixth year in a row:

https://www.canstarblue.com.au/city-trains/

Perhaps Canstar Blue should consider putting this survey on ice until there are signs that the other systems start awakening from their slumber at the bottom of the heap! Or perhaps Melbourne Metro can trumpet its unbroken record at the bottom of the list. Maybe things will start to stir when Sydney Metro is up and running, but I can't think of much else happening in other states that will knock the crown off Transperth for years to come.

Transperth released an updated version of their mobile application over the weekend, with the most significant change being the addition of Live-Tracking to the application: https://www.transperth.wa.gov.au/Journe ... sperth-App

How odd - I saw it out on a 371 earlier too! It's at Malaga right now yeah but I'm not sure if the move is permanent just yet. 1403 is at Malaga too, same deal.

In other news:

- Up to and including 1964 refurbished

- 2246-48 moved from Freo to Rocko recently, 1934, 35 and 37 are now back at Freo

- 2819 - 2822 noted in Welshpool today. No sign of 2814-18 (and they haven't been registered whereas 19-21 have)

- 2934-38 delivered to Freo and are all in service, which I believe spells the end for 1805 and 1810-12.

1892 has been refurbished

Also looks like 100 and 101 are back at Malaga after their brief stay at Welshpool (saw 100 on a 950 this arvo). 1720 looks to be working out of Malaga too, spotted it on a 344 this morning.

Seeing as it hasn't been mentioned, the freshly renovated Redcliffe Depot opened for operations on Sunday, to PATH Transit. My understanding is that aside from the 6 Airport buses, the rest of Welshpool's diesel fleet has transferred to Redcliffe, as well as a couple of buses from Kalamunda Depot. Welshpool is now a CNG only depot, at this point in time.
If it's not a ZF, take it back!

A couple of Malaga buses might have made their way there too, I spotted 2705 on a 287 and 2714 on a 38 earlier today. Of course, they might just be at Welshpool in a swap for the couple of OCs that are currently living up at Malaga but I'm not too sure.

To add to this, I popped down to Canning Vale depot earlier in the week and noted:

1324
1325
1326
1533
1534
1535
1536
1537

All parked around the back and have had all advertising etc. removed so it looks like they all will be heading to Manheims in the near future as well. 1536/7 were only in service just last week!

I went on an NH mission last month, only just had time to post. These are around a month old. Some looked stored or withdrawn but most still in service.

Note 1715. It still had plates on at malaga, less than a month later it’s at the rank in manheims. Doesn’t take them long to process.

1780+6 CNGs withdrawn. 1721,1715 Malaga

1744,1335,1165,1316,1734,1159,1743,1514,
1518,1517,1528,1540,1315,1331,1318,1722,1526,manheims. No more visible around the back? Is that it for now

1724,1375,1502,1332, Welshpool

1536,1535,1326,1324,1325,1533,1534 1806 Canning vale.

1350,1354,1355,1338,13481346,1549,1340,1548,1345,1347,1349,1351,1343,1339,1341,1342,337,1344,1334, Shenton Park

1375 isn't a NH :P

Everything you listed at Shenton Park is in service, as is 1721, but everything else you listed is in storage or withdrawn.

Notably 1536 and 37 returned to service briefly at Canning Vale a couple weeks ago to presumably cover for 1486 and probably 87 which are being moved to Bunbury very soon, but looks like 1542/43 and the new B7 deliveries have meant they're no longer needed

Thanks for 1547, been wondering where that ended up
