Four hours in Canberra

Postby jarf » Fri Sep 02, 2011 10:46 pm

I spent the night of August 30/31 in Canberra. On the morning of the 31st, while waiting for my mother to finish doing her hair, I managed to squeeze in four hours of gunzelling... :lol:

Comments are more than welcome. :wink:

Great shots!
It really looks you always have nice weather there! :D

Can anyone explain what the steel frame at the front of some Buses is for?
It's strange, you cannot read the number plates because this frame hides it. :shock:

EDIT: Ok, I got it now. :lol:
I saw Bus400's photo thread …

But I'm wondering why the Buses carry the bikes at the front.
And yes, I noticed you also can see the number of that vehicle at the side. But not always the number from the number plate is the same like the number, the Bus has got. :P

They are a transport initiative which allows people to ride a bike and combine their bike trip with bus travel, promoting transport alternatives to cars. As for the location, the front of the bus is the easiest place to house the bike rack, there would be no other sensible location on a bus to place a bike rack.

Every numberplate matches the fleet number, i.e. if it is fleet number 975, the number plate will be BUS-975. Also, buses with a bike rack fitted have an exemption which does not require them to have a number plate.

I Hope this answers your questions.

Yes, it did. Thanks! :)

Our city Buses have no space for bikes. But tour Buses have, they carry the bikes on a rack at the back side.
