Hi operator541
The bus you are asking about I have not seen around Darwin for at least 18 months. I used to see it parked at truck city Winnelle. I have a picture I took in 2010 if you would like

You need to include the m/o prefix, i.e. type "mo3029" into to the search app.

That gives the correct vehicle. The registration expired on Christmas Day 2007.

Oh dear how dare they vandalize a great bus like that by converting it with a lump of wood and calling it wheelchair friendly :( It's just not fair on her!!
