I remember reading somewhere last year, it was purchased by the intercity group. NZ fleet lists shows all the vehicles now in Ritchies fleet.

The buses are shared between Ritchies and Tranzit :

RITCHIES
643 ERQ751 Optare Spectra decker
644 DRU173 Isuzu Journey
645 JYE909 BCI decker

TRANZIT
206 GDC925 Zonda YCK
207 EMK739 Hino Rainbow
208 24SEAT Mitsubishi Rosa

On cruise ship days, extra buses from either are brought in to add service.

These were listed with Auckland Explorer before the sale, but have not yet been noted in service with a new operator.
EER418 Hino Rainbow
EMK783 Nissan Civilian
EXPBUS Bristol VRTSL3 decker

The Bristol was parked at the back of Ritchies yard in Swanson a couple of weeks ago, Also the Hino Rainbow EER418 is now in Ritchies livery.. I will attempt to get photos on Friday when I am there.
