Re: Private Bus Observations 2020

IN townsville since the change of ownership we only have 3 of the old pie carts the rest are full sized buses as most carry loads of school kids as well as shoppers and workers.but even like townsville no service after 8.30pm at night and 7pm week ends if you don't have a car forget it.
