Transit Systems - Sydney (Region 3)

Postby OLYMPIAN » Tue Aug 27, 2013 7:44 pm

Seems like no one doing a fleet list for them

Sighted at the depot today is:

1601 1602 Hino RG with Autobus body
1603-1606 Hino RG with P&D body

Also ex- Brisbane Transport B10M are:
1801-1808 as far as I can see, and I believe is ex-242 was used for parts

From a number of sources and sighting
B7RLE/CB80 are 1295-1308 so far.

The fleet list is being developed offline. But I would certainly recommend any sightings be posted here as the fleet builds in anticipation of the start date.
The B10Ms are actually in the 1200 and 1300 range. Noted as being registered so far:

What's the point of making a public fleet list for a company that isn't operating yet?

As Daniel says, this thread is a good place to post all confirmed sightings in preparation for a fleetlist in October.

Are these the ex blue buses that Veolia operated on behalf Parramatta Council?

If that's the case, what are the three B7's currently operating the shuttle?

Since TNSW took over from the Parramatta council the three buses owned by the Council but operated by Veolia Transport were sold and have even operated in SA for a while for TSA, and replaced in Parramatta by two Veolia (now Transdev) buses as free shuttle buses

I didn't realise they went to SA, they must've been tidied up, cause they were sitting at Bankstown Depot for a while and were all dusty and dirty and had Spider webs all inside them, December 2012

That must be one good sneak preview of the upcoming operator's bus fleet.

3x Mercedes O500LE / Volgren units ex Brisbane Transport have arrived at Moorebank. At least two of the Hino Autobuses have been repainted into TNSW livery also (1603 and 1604).

Initially rumored to be Transdev Melbourne but this appears not to be the case. It is believed that 20 are due to go to Sydney immediately and 20 to Adelaide as they come off lease next year.

So I take it, this isn't confirmed yet, seeing as they're not in the fleet list?

The Transit Systems Sydney fleet list is not available to the public as yet, that is why they cannot be seen.

I realise that, sorry I didn't explain that very well, You were talking about it is believed that 20 Merc O500LE/Volgren are going to Transdev Sydney (Adelaide & Melbourne), The only thing listed in the to be delivered in Transdev NSW is 710. So I take it that it's not confirmed that buses are coming to Transdev Sydney?

They are going to Transit Systems not Transdev, this is the Transit Systems thread after all! The units are already at Wales Repairs Smithfield being painted.
Also there has been a sighting of the first MAN Volgren, hopefully OLYMPIAN can enlighten us further.

Are they getting volgrens out of brisbane (new)? Seen a couple of new volgrens been road tested recently, I'm sure one of them had transit systems on it, 1135 was the fleet number in TNSW colours.
