New addition to Blue Mountains Explorer Bus

Postby Centralian » Wed Aug 15, 2018 5:42 pm

Today was the first day of operation of Blue Mountains Explorer Bus newest addition, TV 645 BCI decker.
This now gives them a fleet of 2 new BCI deckers, and 4 Volvo Olympians.
Newest addition is Fleet # 301, 'Kameruka' as TV 645.
It joins Fleet # 300, 'Kuparu' delivered last year as TV 644.
A couple of shots I took today of both vehicles which were on the road.
I have to say vehicles look very impressive on the road in the livery and signage.

Thanks Stefan.
Note that you can have all-over-advertising without it covering the windows!
Minister Constance please note.

All over advertisements are wrapped on buses by the operator and not by Transport For NSW or the transport minister

TfNSW or the Minister have the power to prevent it, and they are the ones who respond if you make a complaint. And I think TfNSW gets a cut of the income, because they own the buses.

How does the bus advertising thing work exactly does a operator need to have a deal with a transport advertising company or is the advertising deal something that is within the Transport For NSW bus contract

It's something that the operator engages in with the advertising company - e.g APN
