2038 now with an AOA for Suncorp. 1898 furiously pumping coolant out of its rear end prevented me from getting a photo of it this morning.

Advertising on buses look sh--house - most of the designs are sickening - does anyone know how much revenue it raises?

No but it must be a fair slab as the paint jobs get ruined by the ads leading to buses needing to be repainted due to the damage caused by removal of these ads

Varies from state to state The Bell Tower, however here in Hobart AOA buses generate approx. $25,000 p/a (cost 10yrs ago) with repaint of bus being factored into the cost. Nowdays a lot of the stickers used aren't that bad on paintwork, BUT in saying that, with the HEAT of WA, SA & NT in particular, it could still badly damage paint.

AOA's if anything protect the paint underneath the advert.

It would be nice to start seeing some of the adverts transferred over from 405NH's across to newer B7's to ensure maximum exposure.

Wish they'd start putting AOA's on some of the newer gear like the B7's....dependant on the depot a new buses is gonna get far more exposure than a bus in semi-retirement.
