More than likely a PTV School run

Yarra Valley Grammer Site suggest mostly likley not a PTV school run.

The Blackburn run is one of nine private charter runs that Ventura operate to Yarra Valley Grammar. The former National O405s also make appearances on these runs.

Ventura also run four PTV school runs to the school, travelling from Ringwood, Wonga Park, Montrose and Mountain Gate.

There is a full list of the school services on their website, including others provided by McKenzies and Martyrs - http://www.yvg.vic.edu.au/contact-us/lo ... -transport

Kind Regards

The buses or the kids after they scribble on the seats and spill Coke all over the place? :)

Seen this evening at Glen Waverley was Lilydale based (or ex Lilydale) 795 Scania L94UB/Custom CB60. First time I have seen an Lilydale bus on non Lilydale routes.

Also 1173, one of the first L94UB's delivered, has been seen on Knox routes in recent weeks where it started it's career 18 years ago (god how time flies).

1168 is, according to my observations, the only L113CRL left at Knox now, a nice one.

Most variants of Ventura buses represented on the current Pakenham/Cranbourne Shutdown, including quite a few Volvo B7R/Volgren SC222's, including one running the 0417 from Cranbourne to Carrum Station. I would guess given the few very stops they are able to operate these, makes for something a bit different. looking at the timetable I don't envy the drivers on the early morning services 0310 from Pakenham and 0340 from Cranbourne.

It previously promoted Mr Robot on Presto.

Was that a PTV run or a school charter run? Thought all the schools runs were meant to be seat belted?

This run now requires a wheelchair accessible vehicle.
