Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

^Link? Looking at aerial imagery over Eagle Farm Depot, there were (on the 17th of Sep) 8 artics in CityGlider livery as well as another 9 in standard livery (parked on the western side of the yard). So they encompass 17 of the 18 buses between 1653 and 1670. There was also a TAG parked behind them...

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

T2895 out and about at Kenmore yesterday. (I think 🤔) I haven't seen any new B8's on route service yet. Or new artics for that matter. This suggests no MANs have been de-commissioned recently, although I believe that the last remaining Scanias may be the first to go when the new buses are running.

Thank You Cazza. Yeah, they run ALOT of School Routes. And it appears they always have the same buses run the same school routes! An instesting way to operate...

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

Any news on the Volgren plant reopening? Surely it must be soon! I don't believe that it ever closed - just BT has not been putting the new artics on the road. The new artics are now sitting at Eagle Farm Depot - some in City Glider livery and some in normal livery. Maybe they will be on the road o...

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

The reason as to why SWT buses have T on them is because, they are all maintained, and I am pretty sure they're stored at Toowong depot occasionally. Not a BT/SWT employee so don't question my facts please. :lol: More a case that the buses were Toowong buses prior to going to SWT and the T was neve...

Re: Brisbane Metro

I am still very skeptical about the need for artics on the Blue Glider - before COVID, whenever I saw a full Blue Glider, the next one or two (which often would be a minute behind) would be near empty - I think TfB looked at the number of full Blue Gliders to make the decision to use artics rather t...
