Fells Atlantean about 9.15pm in City
The lairish Fun Bus spotted outside the Carlyle 10pm and later in Main Road Moonah at 1.45am (presumable going home to get cleaned up)
Two of Gregory's Red Deckers were parked on the Brooker Highway at Glebe about 1.15am

Never seen so many on the road in one night.


Must have been the odd wedding or function or two.

And from March 1 all bus shelters and malls are to be smoke free.
No smoking will be allowed within 3 metres of any bus shelter.

If you don't already know, Roberts Coaches of Huonville now have a Facebook page up for people to follow and keep notified of their news.
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Roberts-Coaches-TAS/274548989283727

It's definitely a good way of getting it out there IMHO :D
Metro should have something similar, as nobody I know uses Twitter.

Tassielink has a different looking web-site with news bulletins etc. The additional trial Port Arthur service has been reduced from 6 days per week to 3 days per week. Also services departing Queenstown for Hobart and Launceston now depart from the bus stop at the Queenstown Railway Station. They used to depart from Schulze's Top Shop in Orr Street which closed down last year.

Had a ride on Volvo Artic #14 today - never noticed before is a remnant of the original livery (mustard and the red band) on the interior framework of the rear (trailer) doorway.
Love this island!

Ahh yes, I'm familiar with that!
Some others have it too (also on the outside of the doors where the rubber has "shrunk")
