I won't enter a debate about Yes or No in regards to individual signage etc on vehicles bout the directive that went out several weeks ago went to ALL operators of TNSW liveried vehicles.
Some operators (not Sydney operators) are still working through issues with TNSW and from what I gather,it isn't over yet-time wil tell I guess but given the strength of TNSW,I guess they will prevail eventually.
On a personal view and I stress this is a personal view,I love my traditional colours on vehicles.The feedback from several sources is 'John Citizen' is having real problems coming to grips with TNSW liveried buses turning up in traditional colour areas so maybe an education program would be appropriate to explain that this is the future direction of buses in Sydney,Newcastle and Wollongong.Us as bus spotters don't have a problem knowing what is going on but the area I live in with a high elderly population,they struggle with changes if not properly explained.
Finally,having now seen quite a few TNSW buses with adds plastered on them-YUK,what is the difference in having some signage to explain the operator of that bus to assist the travelling public.
