Go Bus New Zealand and Red Bus NZ fleet changes

Postby chchbususer » Fri Jun 19, 2015 12:59 pm

Following changes need to be made to GO BUS:

Christchurch's bus system has recently had a major overhaul with route changes and a new bus exchange recently opening. They have changed the liveries of several buses and also acquired new buses.

Go Bus:

This bus has been acquired.
Bus #1013
Plate: GWB434
VIN: WMAA66ZZ77C010060
Body: MCV Evolution
Chassis: 2008 MAN 14.240
Livery: Blue Line
Seating is the same as the others (B38DW)
ex UK (unknown what it was over there)

This bus has been in the fleet for quite some time but has not been posted on the board:
Bus # 2022
Plate: AJR602
VIN: WMAA76ZZZ1H001714
Body: Designline
Chassis: 2001 MAN 12.220 SLF
Livery: Urban Cat
Seating: B31D
(Ex Leopard #22, same plate, formerly operated the Orbiter)

All buses in the Selwyn Star livery are now in the Yellow Line livery.
Also buses #2073 (ZR8226) and #2075 (ZR8228) are now in the Yellow Line livery.
Bus #2076 (BPL303) is in standard Go Bus livery.

Red Bus:
Metrostar buses are no longer in the Metrostar livery unless I state otherwise. Some Metrostar buses have been converted into Purple Line buses.

These Red Bus operated buses are now in the Purple Line livery:
#403 (CHW241)
#404 (CHW242)
#681 (BEZ446)
#682 (BEZ458)
#683 (BEZ459)
#691 (BZE341)
#692 (BZE348)
#907 (FDD223)
#908 (FDD232)
#909 (FDD233)
#910 (FDD234)
#911 (FTY876)
#912 (GBT973)
#955 (FAS923)
#956 (FAS924)
#957 (FAS921)

These buses are allocated to route #29 (Airport - City Centre via Fendalton)
#976 (GGU888)
#977 (GGU894)
#978 (GGU902)
#979 (GGU908)

There is an Orange Line livery however I only know a few buses in this livery, so will post updates later when I find out more.
