Shenton Park's 2578 is now an AOA bus, with 'Mitsubishi Electrical' (aircon) being the advertiser. Just in time for summer :P
Currently working on my bus photography site where I'm aiming to photograph every Transperth bus in Perth - have (almost) everything!

Okay thank you C man I’m guessing that you must work for the Transperth or something you seem to know a lot, when does the next B class is due to be delivered? I was planning to drive over to Midland if it’s during the holidays

Is it really that hard to check previous posts? You do realise that you yourself posted it not two weeks ago right?

Hey squiddy. Do you know if these we’re replacing anything or additional buses?

Retired TP1307 was spotted parking at Fremantle Port alongside with a Ex-Brisbane Austral-Denning Metroliner that might've been used for the fire testing at Perth Busport.
