State Primary School Cross-Country (Symmons Plains)

Post by Tas Bus Nut »

The state primary school cross-country was held at Symmons Plains on June 25. Over 50 buses/coaches transported students from
across the state, making it an ideal event to capture some of the vehicles operating for different operators across Tasmania. I was
fortunate to attend the event and get these photographs. There were numerous mini-buses, and although I photographed a couple,
I have never been a fan, so they are few and far between.

Have always enjoyed your capture of vehicles in Tassie on here Tas Bus Nut, likewise with this lot.
Certainly a mix of Chinese built vehicles in this collection, and the dreaded 'white' livery.

Great selection of vehicles, Neil.The amount of white or nearly white vehicles was amazing.And plenty of modern Chinese equipment.
Could the majority of buses do a morning school run,then get to Symmons Plains then make it back for a PM school run?

Those vehicles used would have made it back. All departed approx. 1:45pm, so those close certainly would have. Majority were charter coaches, not contract ones (I'd imagine) Will be interesting next week, what's used on the Secondary Schools.
