Evening Fleetlists,
Punchbowl is actually three units in TNSW livery-1 x CB60 delivered m/o 662,2 x CB80 awaiting delivery (1 currently at Volvo Chullora to deliver to PBC next week) and 1 at Customs to go to pre-delivery at Volvo Chullora next week).

The 2 x CB80's are the first two of nine on order all to the same specs.

Hi, sorry for butting in and I didn't know whether to make a new thread or not but can someone explain to me how the TNSW thing is actually being put into place?

Are all revenue operators in NSW being repainted into the TNSW livery or is it just the major operators (Veolia, STA, CDC, etc...). I'm sorry if this has been answered 200 times over but.. yeah.

Thanks,
Mitchul [;
Possibly, but probably not.

As has been explained before, all operators under contract to the NSW Government in Sydney and regional areas such as Central Coast, Newcastle, Blue Mountains and Central Coast will have new buses delivered in the TNSW livery. But at this stage it does not apply to operators in other country areas.

Also where buses are repainted as part of a major refurbishment where it is paid for the the NSW Government, they will be repainted into the TNSW livery. Some other repaints where paid for by the operator may still be into the old livery but the option is there to have such buses repainted into the TNSW livery.

Because of the way it is being done, it will quite a few years before all buses are in this livery.

With just over half a year gone since it commenced, less than 5% of buses with the operators who already have buses in the new livery, are in it at the moment so as said before it wont happen in one or two or three years and probably a lot more than that.

The link in the first post in the thread gives an up to date picture of the operators concerned and % of each fleet which is now in the new livery.

The situation today
Blue Mountains 3 1.35%
Busabout 3 1.35%
Greens Northern Coaches 1 0.45%
Hawkesbury 3 1.35%
Hopkinsons 1 0.45%
Premier Illawarra 5 2.24%
Punchbowl 3 1.35% 1
Shorelink 5 2.24%
Veolia 13 5.83%
CDC 35 15.70%
Busways 17 7.62%
STA 134 60.09% 3

At the rate of 4 a week with another 4822 buses to be done, it will take over 20 years to have this completed. Hopefully some weeks will see more activity.

People,
Please refer my note posted a little while ago in regards to changes to the Punchbowl operated TNSW livery vehicles-Punchbowl Wings and front signage are in the process of being removed from the three TNSW vehicles delivered so far.Photographed m/o 5434 this morning with signage removed.

This covers two weeks as I did not do this last Saturday
Blue Mountains 3 1.24%
Busabout 3 1.24%
Greens Northern Coaches 1 0.41%
Hawkesbury 4 1.65%
Hopkinsons 1 0.41%
Premier Illawarra 5 2.07%
Punchbowl 3 1.24%
Shorelink 5 2.07%
Veolia 13 5.37%
CDC 43 17.77% 2
Busways 17 7.02%
STA 144 59.50% 3
242 100.00% 5


But even so only an extra five so we still have not reached 5 %. At this rate it is going to take a long time.

Mr Twig,
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.

Kind Regards Punchbowl Tiger Cub

It's in service now, I saw it today at Bateau Bay.

TNSW livery looked great on it. Hopefully we'll be seeing more Red Buses in blue soon.

Sorry didn't notice fleet number

"Red Bus Services" was above drivers window. The front NSW + logo was in a weird spot below driver (most that i've seen are in the centre).
