New Buses in SEQ

Post by TheIlikeBusesGuy »

Hi all,

Just thought i'd share a couple of the latest buses to don the TransLink green.

First up, Caboolture Bus Lines has bought three Mercedes O500LE (Volgren Optimus). I was very happy to see USB charging inside and modern, white destination signs. They are a good looking bus!

Hornibrook Bus Lines recently sold off 104 (end of last year- to Red and White). It's replacement, 162 is a BCI midi. Wasn't too bad as a passenger, but the tough question is- how long will it last?

Finally, Bus Queensland has started to buy Volvo B8RLE (Volgren Optimus) for their Ipswich operations. I was surprised to see they didn't buy the K310UB/Gemilang's like Park Ridge and Toowoomba. They do look good though.

Still waiting for a MAN SL200 to catch to school. Might be waiting a while....
