First & Second Route 281 to Deakin Uni

Postby Craig » Tue Apr 06, 2010 7:56 pm

Today saw the start of the extended 281 service to Deakin Uni via Elgar Road. Previously the route terminated at Box Hill. Although Nationalbus Doncaster has ran a special 767 shortworking to Deakin Uni during the morning peak for several years, this is the first time they have ran regular services to Deakin Uni. This is also the first route to enter the actual university grounds.

I decided I'd catch the first trip, which was ran by NationalBus #745 (Mercedes Benz O405NH, Custom0. It was great to see a red & yellow livered bus made the trip!

The second trip was done by Nationalbus #593 (M.A.N. 16.240, Designline)

Pausing at Wattle Park, with Yarra Trams A1.245.

Later in the morning I saw #495 heading to Deakin Uni - I wonder if anyone was able to get a shot of an "Ultra" at Deakin Uni?

Kind Regards

What time did you see that one? Some of the trips the maxi buses do seem to be semi-set.

Interesting that the 281 goes further into the grounds of Deakin where no other buses go!
