Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

How many more B8s will we see come out of this batch? I just assumed they were stopping after 100 at 2900. I remember reading somewhere last year of council's commitment to X amount of buses introduced each year (equivalent to 60 standard buses?) but I can't recall where or what the figure was. The...

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

T2895 parked at Volgren today - with decals but no rego plates. T2895, T2896 (rego XQ 11 NQ) and T2897 (rego XQ 14 NQ) at Volgren today. Artic XQ 04 NQ also there without decals. B8 rigids are starting to be made again? Guess that means MAN 18.310 CNG withdrawals will be starting up again soon, mos...

Pretty sure all of the newest B8 artics will be going to E since they will be getting used on the blue glider service.

Re: BT Scanias

Is there still no definite date for when we can expect to see the last few Scanias finally be withdrawn?

(don't know why though)
Probably for the same reason as all the other 1200s and 1300s that have been withdrawn lately.

Most of the 1200s no doubt. But if they are being installed how come none of the high 1300s, 1400s or 1500s have the barrier yet?

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

Aren't BT suppose to be installing driver barriers on the 18.310s similar to those seen on the B7s/B8s/B12s? Since hearing about it I have yet to see any 18.310s with it installed so I wouldn't know for sure if they are installing them or have abandon them all together.

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2019

So would the Scanias being withdrawn early (mainly in regards to the younger ones) be because of the CNG compliance? Or something completely different?

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2019

So why the need to withdraw the older ones early when they still have a good 6-8yrs of service left?

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2019

When was the age limit for how long buses can stay in service for BT changed from 21yrs to roughly 15yrs? Surely must be sometime after the Australs were withdrawn as they were the last ones to make it to 21yrs.

Likewise in the southern suburbs. Last time I saw any of the diesel MANs around there was back when Larapinta depot was still open.

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2019

How is it that 1280 only allows rear door exit? I always thought you can exit a bus from either the front or rear door.

Re: Brisbane Transport Observations 2018

The shields are likely to be rolled out across the fleet. S5100, S2003 and several of the new B8 artics have the barrier installed. As I understand it, all new buses should come with one of the two variants of barrier designs installed. I see. I'm assuming the Scanias won't get it since they are in...

Re: Brisbane Transport Observations 2018

On B7 S2000 I noticed a glass/plastic shield on the door that is on the drivers side. Is this new at all or do other buses in the fleet also have it? The reason I ask this is because it's the first time I've seen something like it.

V2818 (rego XQ 57 BR) in service on an inbound 306 this morning. Could this possibly be the last B8 for V? Might keep it a suspense until 2819 is spotted. If it is could that mean Garden City will be next to get new B8s to replace the Scanias? Or would they be going to another depot instead (most l...

Any news yet on when Garden City plans to phase out their Scanias? Once Virginia finally have all of theirs transferred/withdrawn they would be next to have them gone.

Spotted one of the new Volvo Optimus Artics on a outbound 180 service a few nights ago. Quite surprised to see it since I thought they were being used exclusively on 111 and 66 services.

No idea how long it was in service prior to what it's now used for.
