It's worthwhile mentioning this as it is school holidays, there may be a few unusual sightings e.g. Canning Vale and Beckenham buses running 251 252 and 254 services.

The following Renault Artics (PR180.2) registrations expired on 30/06/17 and remain unregistered, one would assume they have been withdrawn permanently. 703, 705, 707, 734, 740, 749 and 753.

A bit of a surprise is the last remaining high floor rigid O405 diesel 1053 has been re-registered until 30/06/18 ?????

The early model 0405NH diesels that were due to expire on 30/06/17 have been re-registered for another 12 months, so excluding 1302 which was retired late last year it looks like the rest of the early model 0405NH diesels will carry on into 2018.

It will be interesting to see if we get some more new B8RLE midi's for the Perth CAT fleet in the first half of FY2017/18 and also which 0405NH gassies will be retired next due to expired CNG tanks.

I believe 1558 has been at Shenton Park for a while now however hasn't been noted on here, I saw it on St Georges Tce today running a 27.

Again this morning I observed another Shenton Park bus, this time 1555 running the 999 Circle. Does Shenton Park now do Circle shifts or could it be just filling in ? My understanding is that Palmyra, Canning Vale and Malaga do the majority of circle route.

CAT7 has also become TP0113.

Shenton Park will probably do a shorter shift for a Circle Route

I think from early this year, one of those three (Shenton Park, North Frematle or Claremont) have been given an early morning circle, however I've only seen it during school holidays.

Your understanding is mostly correct, with the slight adjustment of Bayswater having a sizable amount of circle trips.

Cheers! :wink:

I have heard that Transdev will be keeping at either Fremantle or Rockingham depots.
