In around 2012, these were repowered with Cummins engines, as low emission engines were required to extend the contract.

These buses were listed for sale, but have been seen floating about on rail replacement.

They’re currently still listed for sale on Bus Sales Online and along with rail replacement on both the Pakenham/Cranbourne & Hurstbridge lines over the last month or so, they’ve been used for cleaning up Transdev’s mess

Why was this shuttle service ended? Because of the introduction of the free tram zone?

What area did it operate and why was it closed?
