During a long EBA dispute between ACTION Management & Workshop Staff, problems were caused with refueling buses for weekend services. So during April 2011 Bus 788 (Renault PR100.2 MkI) was sent out on weekend services. Bus 788 was withdrawn only 3 months later.

In its 24th year of service with ACTION, Bus 700 still plods along. There is a high chance that 2012 will mean the end of Bus 700 at ACTION.
