Bump!

Re: CNG High-Floor Bus Farewell + CNG Surprise

This seems to be a good point to emphasize that the MTT / Transperth & now the PTA have always been very supportive of the bus preservation movement in Perth.

Re: information please

Thanks for posting the photos. Whilst Daimler Freelines were rare in Australia, they were plentiful in Auckland. Perth had 31 of them and two are with the Bus Preservation Society at Whiteman Park. One of the sisters to yours was in preservation in the 1980s but was then sold for more use as a bus....

I don't have a record of the MTT fleet no for this Daimler CVG6 that the late Bruce Harris photographed circa 1973. It was registered RGB059. Can anyone help?

Re: Howard Porter Volvo Coach.

And are there photos of the 3 Volvo coaches in any of their liveries? The only Volvo B58 / Howard Porter I have listed for AAC was TC216, originally regd AAC005 - I assume that's the same coach as in the photo you posted. The only additional photo I can offer is this one by C W Davison of ex-TC213 ...

Re: Howard Porter Volvo Coach.

Does anyone have any production history for the Howard Porter bus builders? Howard Porter motor body builders was established in William St Fremantle in 1936. They later moved to O`Connor (east of Fremantle for non-locals) & are currently located in Bibra Lake. Nowadays their main business appears ...

Re: Perth Causeway citybound exit for buses

Very strange (and confusing) to see reference to the south end of the Causeway; it has always been West End Causeway & East End Causeway. At neither end do buses get any form of priority. If you are running-on or -off, it is quicker to use the non-bus lanes. If you are travelling East, the timing o...
