Tasmanian Bus Observations - JUL > DEC 2019

Postby Tas Bus Nut » Fri Jun 28, 2019 4:40 pm

Although not quite July, we'll get this thread started by announcing Tassielink Transit will be taking delivery of 2x Scania K320UB / Express early July.
Word is Manions Coaches have also purchased a new Mercedes Benz O500LE / Express, similar/identical to (O'Driscoll Coaches' #22 delivered a few months ago)
McDermott Coaches are close to receiving their first Hybrid Volvo for the Cradle Mountain Discoverer. Details/photos when it actually arrives.
If you're following the service reviews, the northern review is underway and can be found at this link: transport.tas.gov.au > go to Public Transport then Northern Region Bus Network

Quite a bit on the new bus fleet, particularly here in Hobart.

Tassielink Transit have two Scania K310 / Express - O'Driscoll Coaches Mercedes Benz O500 / Express + Yutong midi - Walker's Coaches Bonluck.

Yutong representative has been touring the state showing operators a new Yutong school / charter bus on offer.

On a sad note, K & D Sims at Sprent have had their school contracts taken from them, leaving 15 out of work.

and for those following Metro acquisitions, they are now up to #846 in the 100 order of Bustech XDis.
