Bus Companies and Driver Authorities

G'day guys and girls,

Just wondering if you know if Hillsbus or Busways would actually pay for a drivers Authority Card if they needed it and they were willing to employ them for a set minimum period to pay it off?

Also, does anyone know if Ryde are looking for new drivers at all?

Cheers!

Nathan

Re: FUTURE OF HOLDEN

Your getting this from someone who is in the employ of a Holden dealer so I can assure you this is legit. Holden will only be ceasing manufacturing here in Australia. The future for the company will be going to an all-import business. Cars will still be bought and sold and badged as Holden for quite...

Re: STA 2326 O305 Mk2 **UNDER RESTORATION**

Don't know who told you that, but their facts are wrong! Definitely wont be used for that purpose as it will be moving to a new home come end of the year. I happen to be a staff member at that particular AAFC Squadron. When we want transport for an activity we source an ADF vehicle.

Re: Late running T80 - Minster apologises

Why do I get the impression here that everyone is out to get Transit Systems?

They have identified problems and are working to rectify them but yo...

Re: STA 2326 O305 Mk2 **UNDER RESTORATION**

After eight long hours slog, I ended up getting the rear route number wiring re-soldered, the side desto cover put back on and the ticket bins at the rear door reattached. Doesn't sound like a lot of work, but it was a fair effort! http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q1/CaptainKarta/Mobile%20Uploads/...

Re: STA 2326 O305 Mk2 **UNDER RESTORATION**

Thanks guys. I do agree; personally I would have gone with the trial refurb livery as there are none of those preserved. Either that or UTA livery....

I will endeavour to find out the origin of the Bessie name. He's told me, but I just cant remember.... I'll also try and get some more photos up.

Re: STA 2326 O305 Mk2 **UNDER RESTORATION**

Hey, I'm not arguing something I can't change. Personally, and as bland as it may have been, I would have done it in its McGrath refurb livery as I'm sure there isn't a single one of those restored.

And its missing its headlight surrounds. The MkII is even worse shape, missing a surround and a headlight, and a nearside mirror. Good thing is it still has its original taillight panels with round lights!
