Word on the street is 0109's time is up. It's to be scrapped.
If it's not a ZF, take it back!

It won't be much longer before we see B7s getting Joondalup CAT colours.

Given its age (≈13-14 years), I'm not surprised at all.

Word on the street (and on perthbus.info) that 2880 and 2881 are the current Joondalup CAT buses...

Cheers! :wink:
Officially the last person to tag off the 381 - 20/5/16.
Second last person to tag off the last timetabled 16 - 23/08/19.
Last person to tag off a Transdev Joondalup service - 19/1/20.

Do they have special livery too? I'd take it that 1824 and 1825 are now in storage awaiting decommissioning.

Photos of both are on perthbus.info

Saw a police escort consisting 1571, 1347 and 1348 on Great Eastern Highway this morning.
The one who catches the Perth Stadium bus like an illegal immigrant by only to gunzel for buses & trains and/or to go anywhere else.

TP3085 always operates the first 654 trip to Perth Stadium.

Should be a temporary arrangement until the 7900s are delivered and commissioned. The refurbishment of Joondalup depot should be about to get underway soon which includes the 4x 100kW EV charging stations. I’m regularly in Joondalup for work now so can check it out

Swan just seem to keep rolling in the new buses, which probably makes sense, given that they have the largest portion of currently active NHs (perthbus.info reading 70, making 64 excluding 1851-53 which haven't been seen for a while, 1824-25 which have been displaced from CATs by 2880-81, and 1352, displaced from the Midland Gate Shuttle by 1466) - 2885 and 2886 have been registered.

My count is 52 NHs currently active in the Perth metro, 53 if you include 1549. The 1800s are the oldest NHs so it makes sense that they're being killed off, though there should be a couple for Transdev in the near future as 1210 and 1211's remaining time dwindles, too.

Would love to see 7900s in Dolphin livery. The current Dolphins can be re-registered 0123-0126.

I wouldn't think so, given that (a) Joondalup Depot is the only depot set to receive electric charging stations, and (b) the current Dolphins have been refurbished and kept their RCCTS fleet numbers and regos.

Aye, and post-refurb the three dolphins are still locked to Rockingham shuttles anyway (and the fourth is used as a spare), so there's no point re-registering them. Rockingham shuttles they will be for the rest of their lives!

2012 is back so their 2000s are done, I saw 1410 back today as well, meaning 1411-13 for Morley and 1430-34 are left to do. It's possible they're all away at the moment being done, but I think at least 1434 is still around, maybe 1433 too.

A B-set on a heritage line? I thought we all stopped posting about these given that it happens practically every day now...
