Dalroy Express have what appears to be a new MAN 15.280 on their New Plymouth - Auckland service. Does anyone have any further details?

Walked outside my house to this morning to get the bus and spotted a horrible collision between a Go Bus MAN 16.223 after it had collided front on with a truck at the Avalon bypass roundabout near Rifle Range Rd. The front had been completely dented in. :shock:

Bayline has owed TUI coachlines for a while now and still uses their livery.

Go Bus 182 MAN 16.223 is in a revised AOA for classic hits. Much of the red and white has been replaced by purple and silver. It features the 'Bunting and Justine in the Morning Show'.

A golden age in bus advertising has how ended in Hamilton. Advertising now covers the windows and is no longer painted on, but wrapped.

Latest
Go Bus 180 for ZM radio 'morning crew'
Go Bus 169 for Waikato University
Sorry about the quality, photo was taken with ipod thingy.

Go Bus 81 has been painted into green Go Bus urban livery. It was one of the oldest buses to still retain an AOA since 1999.2000? for Newstalk ZB and later for Radio Sport.

From tomorrow (Monday 8th) 3 of the 4 direct services in Hamilton won't be running. They have been discontinued and being absorbed into their respective full service routes. The 01 Pukete, 02 Silverdale and 03 Dinsdale will have extra peak services added.

Many changes are now underway on the public transport scene in Hamilton.

The 08 Frankton has become the first route between the city and the suburbs to get a 20 minute service throughout weekdays, an increase from a 30 minute service. It has also been designated a key route becoming the 13th route to now operate Sunday and public holiday services.

Probably because their was an Orange Pavlovich MAN 17.223 and three Orbiter tag axles parked up on Quay Street, Auckland this morning. Either for Rail or Big Day Out back ups.
