Bus action on York Street

Post by ScaniaGrenda »

Very recent photos taken Wednesday 1st of February 2023 in York Street Sydney near Wynyard Station featuring some amazing bus action.

Former State Transit Authority Ryde, now with Busways Ryde m/o 1642 is seen with it's very recently applied TransportNSW livery replacing it's former Corporate MK II State Transit Authority Blue & White livery. This is reportedly the first former STA B12BLE Volgren CR228L to have TransportNSW Livery applied to it.


Rear photo of 1642, looks very nicely done

Surprise Surprise! m/o 1708, a 2006 Volvo B12BLEA Custom Coaches CB60 with Keolis Downer appears with to have reverted back to being a State Transit Authority bus with the older 2000 era series Sydney Buses logo featured on the front panel, although reality is this is more than likely a spare decal that was potentially found in the assortment of containers back at Brookvales workshop.

In the case of that artic, I'm inclined to be a smarty pants and say, "well it's still a Sydney bus isn't it?" :mrgreen:

Before someone even smarter comes along and points out the obvious, YES, I know "Sydney Buses" refers to the former STA.

Yes it is still a "Sydney Bus" About three or four yeas ago the STA stopped using the name Sydney Buses for its Sydney operation to allow Transport for NSW to use the name Sydney Buses for all buses operating in Sydney. If you look at the link page for the timetable for now Busways route 120 https://transportnsw.info/routes/detail ... /120/27120 as an example, it shows Sydney Buses network.
