Could they have written 'City' any smaller in the first pic. Sorry if this sounds like an obvious question, but how do the bike racks work, do you have to pay extra to carry your bike?

In the first pic, the desto has been captured between via scrolls - it doesn't look so small when there are two lines of text. No extra fee for bike carriage, each rack can carry two bikes which are secured in by the passenger - no driver involvement. Very simple operation, see the ACTION website for more info.

Just curious as to the type of A/C unit on the CB80s :?: I can see it's Thermo Kings on the CB60 units (identical to Tasmania) but curious as to the CB80s :?: They are not Denso :?: are they :?:

The CB80's have the new Thermo King X-900 AdvanTech aircon, as used on recent Transperth and Action deliveries (as an example).

X-1000, actually.

Other than one bus which has a Hispacold unit.

Hmm, you mind telling me where that is on the brochure, exactly?

Can't explain why the local ThermoKing website has an outdated brochure, but the X1000 is listed here:

http://www.refrigerated-truck.com/PDF/A ... ochure.pdf

The specs between the X900 AdvanTech and X1000 are similar (they could be the same unit), but the brochure above is more recent.

Refer also to http://www.busaustralia.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=73546 which mentions the ThermoKing X1000 (which is the same as fitted to ACTION's CB80s).
