Thursday 29th December 2011 was the last day that MAN SG280H saw in service. I was fortunate to ride her on her last afternoon in service, a round-trip B10 from Magill to West Lakes and back to Magill.
At the Magill terminus:
At AAMI Stadium Interchange:
The beautiful interior of these great girls. I still prefer the bodies of these strong and solid buses unlike their modern counterparts:
'Smarter, faster ticketing is on the way' but not for 1955:
Wishing everyone a Happy New Year, but sadly she wouldn't live to see the new year:

Thanks to SL200-1880
for letting me grab some great shots on that day.
Time to get bus priority and tram priority through the city and suburbs.
Time to police bus lanes which are used by arrogant car drivers.
Time to work for better timetables and better connections.
