Re: Ventura Group Discussion Thread 2021

There is quite a few second hand acquisitions for the charter fleet listed, the ex Panorama units mentioned plus some from Donric and Grant's Coach Lines, in SA, plus a King Long from Rowville Secondary College. Must of picked up some more school contracts this year. Are these in a Ventura livery?

Re: Tasmanian Bus Observations - JAN > JUN 2021

Thanks Neil for this update.

With the North West changes from the 17th January, will Burnie have sufficient buses for the service improvements?

Very pleasing news about the extra 26 buses for Metro.

Re: NSW Fleet List issues?

There are massive issues - I do the NZ fleet lists - the entries are made, they are there, then gone, some come back a day or so later. Some not yet at all. We are keeping notes on what we enter, so that when it all sorts out, we can review what was saved. Unfortunately, the whole system is unstable...

Re: SQL Error when attempting to access board

I was met by this error yesterday morning.

Bus fleet changes for NZ made yesterday, 1 May, have disappeared. Looking at NSW, VIC and ADL entries, a couple of days worth of updates seem to have gone too. The fleet lists might have saved back to a previous date.

Ventura livery

In the fleet lists, Ventura has 881 buses, with 610 in PTV livery. [almost 70%], plus 8 in Smartbus. I see from photographs that the standard livery is a white bus/coach with Ventura yellow on blue signage [seems to have developed from the Grenda concept]. There are a few other liveries noted [old V...

Had the same experience with the NZ lists - an accidental touch of the space bar creates a different field for that group. Have had to go back and play with the entries to remove such errors and simplify the lists.

Re: Fleet lists question

Ventura has a "last updated date" as 06/07/2017. Thus no changes will appear in the Victorian changes list.

For a very short time, the correct date was shown, then it has lapsed back to this date. For Ventura, it is always necessary to click on Ventura, then the number of days of changes sought.
