Tranzit need at least 29 coaches for RWC work - all need to be unbranded - ie white - they are the official team coaches, hence none of the new Scanias will be given a new livery until after the RWC. On another note the Newwmans brand is no longer used on coaches - Ritchies 556 is the latest to change from Newmans to Intercity.

Spotted Go Bus 81 on school bus services this morning, first time I've seen an O.305 rebuild on school services for a very long time.

Also can anyone confirm that Go Bus Hamilton have RT installed in the urban fleet?

Yes very interesting indeed. I wonder if it will feature and the NSW bus show this coming August? Also I believe this will be the second export to Australia for Kiwi Bus Builders after Mee's #15 Iveco?

Go Bus 24 and 219 were spotted on Charter in Hamilton today parked up at Caro St.

Its also interesting to note that the Hamilton City Council are planning bus parking for up to 6 coaches on Caro St. in a bid to see more tourist buses stop in Hamilton.
