I have been told that apparently Ballina Buslines will be getting 3 Bustech Mans now instead of an SBV...
The SBV's are for someone else while the Mans are still in the production line, and the VST for Ballina will be delivered
Shortly. (As I said in my last post that it would have been delivered before Christmas it is now going to be sometime early
January 2015.

The remaining Bustech 'SBV''s to be delivered are for Tamworth.

Buslines Group will take delivery of three new MAN RR- 19 320 buses with Bustech "SBV" bodies which be delivered to Ballina & Picton.

Is that a typo meant to be 18.320 or do MAN now have a 19 chassis available in Australia ?

Nope, That's what I have been told 19 320. And Northern Rivers Buslines have told me that they will be getting a MAN Bustech SBV aswell so, Ballina, Northern Rivers & Picton will be getting the new MAN's.

Hi Everyone,

Just letting everyone know that I think that the Buslines Group Fleet list should have a table for liveries or AOA's.
As some of the Buslines buses are still in previous operators liveries, as well as Buslines Group have advertisement on their buses. Just putting the idea out there for a table to be added to the Buslines Group fleet for liveries.

Cheers :D

Hello Again!

Got some exciting news! Not Really… but Ballina Buslines- 146 has been delivered! Saw it at Tamar St Bus Terminus at 3.45PM for a 661 to Lismore.
146 has got the new white Hanover desto, I personally don't like the new white Hanover display as it seems un"Buslines Group" and its hard to get a decent photo of the new displays,
which I tried getting a picture of 146.

146 (Mercedes Benz 0500LE, Bustech VST) needs to be added to Ballina's Fleet list.


Cheers, :D

I'm surprised this hasn't been reported but former Griffith #17 (4891MO) is now #6 at Orange

Hi everyone

110 for Ballina Buslines has been moved from Northern Rivers to Ballima for School runs, has been seen doing shift 08. 110 is currently still in Northern Rivers fleet list as 8 but is now 110. 5027 MO

And Northern Rivers have moved all their Fuso's and Coasters to be 1,2,3 & 4... Not quite sure what the rego's are on them but I know that 1,2,3 are Fuso's Rosas and 4 is a Toyota Coaster 5929 MO (ex KJ Eyears)

That's all from my for now, just curious does anyone know when the SBM's will be getting delivered or added to the fleet lists?

I have been given details about Northern Rivers 1, 2, 3… 4 is now in the Northern Rivers fleet list, Apparently Northern Rivers 1 is 6671 MO but when I search for it in the Fleet lists it comes up with a Bustech SBM,
But 1,2,3 are Fuso Rosa's. Northern Rivers 3 is 3172 MO but in fleet list search it says its a Griffith Buslines as 2, I think Griffith gave Northern Rivers 2 sometime in 2014 unless its still at Griffith…

Also 131 (5015 MO) Ballina has been moved to Northern Rivers as 35 as the 35 they had is now 101 in Ballina.

Cheers

NORTHERN RIVERS FLEET UPDATE

6625 MO Fuso Rosa (ex Eyears Casino) is Northern Rivers Buslines 2

19 & 21 do not have AOA's anymore…

33 has "Follow Your Dreams" AOA

131 Ballina Buslines is now 35 at Northern Rivers Buslines

Ballina Buslines and Northern Rivers have done another bus swap with 5285 MO Ballina Buslines 138 and now Northern Rivers 5023 MO 32, 32 is now Ballina 138 (ex Northern Rivers 32).
138 is returning to Northern Rivers as 52 (its original Northern Rivers fleet no.)
So Ballina now has 2 Bustech Graduates and Northern Rivers 2 Graduates.
