3401 has certainly seen better days, and hopefully its days get better.

Re: Kinetic Group fleet changes Australia/New Zealand

Came across this site, with the tab name showing "Welcome to Sunbus Busline".

And have also noticed some photos were taken in a Surfside depot but with Sunbus drivers, which is quite odd.

Re: Rail and Private Operator Observations 2021

Sunbus 5725 was sighted at Burpengary around 7.30am this morning with what looked like 622 Noosa Junction on the desto? Said Noosa Junction or Noosa Heads. Was then seen later on the 11.30am 615 Maroochydore. Bit of an odd sighting, if anyone's got any info on what it was doing, please let me know. ...

Re: Bustech Discussion / Observations

Metro Tasmania units 837, 838 and 839 show as 19/8xx body build dates on the fleet lists, should actually be 18/8xx, as they are conflicting body numbers. VIN for 837, 838 and 839 shows they are 2018 built.

Incorrect. It's been built before.
Really? Can you please provide some examples / context with that?
Bustech is more than capable of building to operators spec. If an operator wants a single door VST with seatbelts, they would get Bustech to build to that spec.

Re: Rail & Private Operator Observations 2019/2020

What issues do they have with 10 11 etc if you can say? They're slow compared to their B12 counterparts, hard to hear out of the driver cab, extremely slow doors and some other issues I'm told. Then there's issues with doors, keeping up air, gearbox issues such as N to D with correct startup proced...

Re: Rail & Private Operator Observations 2019/2020

A driver suggested Clarks should buy the new Custom-Denning electric units, which look very stylish. Prefers them over the new look VSTs. A bloody good idea! If only the Queensland Government didn't fund them to have Bustech electric buses!! I honestly have no hope in Bustechs (or BusTech or someth...

58 and 63 has the Futurebus rear ends.

I have a feeling it could be 6367AO being a Scania L94UB from CDC Ballarat depot.
Will probably go up Tuesday if this rain eases.

Sunbus will no longer be operating runs 064 and 065. Will now be operated by CDC (was Buslink), by what looks to be Volgren CR228L(s). The Go Noosa contract was awarded to CDC today who will now operate the 064 and 065 free bus routes. https://cdcqueensland.com.au/go-noosa-contract-awarded-to-cdc-so...
