Just seen 2429 on a 930 so probably a few around that area.
Currently working on my bus photography site where I'm aiming to photograph every Transperth bus in Perth - have (almost) everything!

also spotted 2428 doing 930. it look like that 242x from Karrinyup move to Canning vale. Even maybe i heart move to SR like what it said in the top, However, I only saw these on 930 and 205 which not really judgement that this bus from SR. maybe if i see on local armadale or gosnells route it sure that move to SR. Btw not only that i saw 2431/32 doing Whitfords - Joondalup route. However maybe this just karriyup shift that use a volvo rather than gas bus

If 242x leave karrinyup that mean karrinyup short of the bus or maybe when beenyup get 32xx karrinyup get some 254x from Beenyup.

Also is look like 259x move to Beenyup/Joondalup

also is all 32xx delivery to Beenyup Depot.

Beenyup Depot has 3200-3226, while the ongoing remainder to be at Joondalup if I'm correct.

Meanwhile, 2427-2429 now resides at Southern River with 3007 currently at Wangara.

3007 & 3026 have been at Mt. Claremont for some time now.

2427-2429 are at Southern River, although this may only be temporary. Can't say anymore than that.

Southern River actually do their fair share of weekend work, and it has nothing to do with them being a gas depot or not.
If it's not a ZF, take it back!

Think they were playing with the school services again in that part of the world recently, so those extra buses might've been moved for that reason - or as extras to compensate for lack of artics if their loss is really that much of an issue.

Indeed, just rode 3228 on a Joondalup shift.

Also, is the ex-Westwide Neerabup depot still in operation under Horizons West ownership? if so, it seems that CVL2810 (Horizons 74, ex-Adelaide 1875) has been transferred to the Neerabup depot, and it has retained the Horizons West stickers.

Joondalup should only be getting B8s to kill off the handful of remaining NHs there. If they're replaced 1:1 I'd expect Joondalup to get up to 3236 or so, anyone's guess at this point where 3200s after that will end up as they'll presumably move on to replacing early OCs after the NHs are gone.

Fremantle's 2651 is at Rockingham too, spotted it on a 558T this morning.

So 32** B8s will be at Gosnells next? Or will the remaining 29** ones enter service at Palmyra first replacing the 12** OCs?

So in relation to the OC Gassies:
1234-1258 were built in 2004
1259-1299, 1855-1873, 1900-1917 and 100-106 were all built in 2005
therefore one would assume those batches would more than likely be withdrawn first.

Given that's approximately 104 of the early OC Gassies to be replaced with new B8s I don't think there will be any more 32xx coming online in 2021 once the remaining Joondalup NH's have been replaced as the above batches are all distributed amongst Transdev and Path depots.

As for which depots the new B8s are delivered to history indicates this is not a straight forward exercise, for example Mandurah's NH's were withdrawn but were replaced with B7s from Rockingham and the new B8s delivered to Rockingham.

Once the Southern River 16xx OC Gassies time comes for retirement anything can happen, they may be replaced directly with B8's or they may be replaced with B7's from another depot and that other depot taking delivery of the new B8's.

About 90 buses a year are being delivered at present (with relatively recent, publicly available documents suggesting that up to 20 of those could be for fleet growth).

is the OC gonna be withdrawn after NH joondalup withdrawn or is they gonna wait until 2024 when it turn 20 years. If that the case maybe some of new delivery bus is for grown fleet for the next expansion (even maybe they more concern on artic delivery rather than rigid fleet)

this is just my opinion
