Re: Rail and Private Operator Observations 2021

I was talking to a driver the other day and he mentioned there was 5 of the MAN buses here in Cairns. I have seen 926 but yet to see 928 and I would assume the fifth unseen bus might be 925. It should be interesting to see if they stay in Translink colours with Surfside logos or if they get repainte...

I can confirm 929 is out and about in Translink colours and Surfside decals in Cairns. Has been on the road since at least Friday 15/05

Re: Kinetic Group fleet changes.

Given it's fleet number it might be a loan...

Re: Rail & Private Operator Observations 2017

On Monday (6/1/17), Sunbus Cairns switched over to the same ticketing machines / printers currently used in SEQ. Even though nothing was launched around Go-Cards, the validators are showing as active with the usual message on the read-out (can't remember the exact wording off the top of my head...)....

Re: Transit Australia Group Fleet Changes (Surfside/Sunbus)

585, 587 and 590 have all been transferred to Tweed, unsure of 582 as I haven't seen that bus in a long time. If 582 has been transferred it leaves only 4 non-a/c buses in the Coomera fleet of which they're designated school buses anyway.

Re: Rail & Private Operator Observations September 2014

Surfside's 694 was sitting in the Coomera Anglican College bus zone for a considerable amount of time this morning. I went past at about 10:45am (Tuesday) initially and then went past again to find it still there an hour later. I'm not sure as to whether the bus was actually broken down or is there ...

Re: Rail & Private Operator Observations

Is Surfside 204 owned by Surfside or has it been sold to Twin Towns? I raise this question as I saw it earlier in a white livery with a desto reading "Twin Towns", heading south on Minjungbal Drive around 3:15pm.

Surfside 859 has lost its AOA and along with 853, are now based at Coomera. I have a feeling 665 is also at Coomera but I can't comfirm, if someone else can, that'd be great :)
