Red Bus Services The Entrance Fleet Changes

Postby David- » Tue Sep 02, 2008 4:51 pm

MO6971 Iveco Metro Fleet Number is 22 as I have asked the driver of the vehicle today.

Fleet Number 84 MO2988 Scania K93 was not Sold To Queensland as it was seen in Gosford today and it is still in service in the red Bus Fleet. I have taken a Photo today to prove it is still in service.

Apologies for the photo as it was taken through the windscreen in the car.

Yeah, they dont have the fake window line at the back, and I have seen one of these styles going around with rubber mounted windows-looked really good.

hey has anyone heard if there is any truth in the rumour that redbus will be trialing the new Volgren Double Decker for Westbus apparently they didn't want to cause to much public concern by trialling them in the Sydney CBD i've heard they will have the new ERG voice activated ticket machines on trial .
800 hp 1600nm of Torque apparently red bus are looking at using them on there Matcham service,if succesfull rumour has it there seriously looking at a return of the Airbus service, both to Sydney and newcastle airport

I doubt Busways is no loner doing charters, as I often see the Ex-Yarramalong and Kulnura coaches on charters.....

I saw the new coach this morning. Its all over white, with Red Bus Service logos on the sides and rear(none on the front). It is an Iveco with what appears to be a Coach design body.
