Tasmanian Bus Observations - JUL > DEC 2018

Postby Tas Bus Nut » Sun Jul 08, 2018 7:28 am

Well the second 1/2 of the year is upon us and the withdrawals have commenced for Metro for the new Bustech XDi arrivals.
Those noted include: ex HC10, ex HC12 & 628 all retired from Burnie, replaced by 630, 631, 636. 801 > 803 replace 630, 631 & 636 in Hobart.
Additional retirements include: 162 for 804, 115 for 805 and 166 for 806, although 806 is yet to be delivered.

Johnsons Coaches Spreyton have a new BCI midi for their newly acquired Savage River service and Pennicott Wilderness Tours have purchased a brand new Bonluck full-size coach, replacing their Csepel/Autobus. But the big news was the operation of hybrid buses by McDermott Coaches on the Cradle Mountain shuttle service. Later in the year, Red Decker Co will operate their "all-weather / all-year round" service to Mt Wellington with a new specially built BCI low-floor. Stay tuned.

YES burrumbus. Crawn's had operated the Savage River contract for quite a few years.
