Ex Griffith 8, now registered 1590 MO and is Ballina 116. Used on new school service.

Still tracking down the ex Kilgin Bus Service bus or buses to add to Ballina fleet.

I’ve realised my previous post regarding the Buslines buses at GC2018 shuttles
are more of an observation than a fleet list thing.

Fresh to Northern Rivers Buslines from Tamworth Buslines:
8 3238 MO ex Tamworth 2 by 1/18
9 3245 MO ex Tamworth 7 by 1/18

The Buslines Group fleet changes have certainly been quiet on here.
Notice in the current Australasian Bus & Coach deliveries listing for March 2020 the name Reo Investment.
A little research reveals Reo Investments Pty Ltd was formely John A Gilberts Holdings P/L and so part of the Buslines Group.
Shows that in March they took delivery of 3 Volvo B8RLE with Bustech bodies, shown as 57 seaters.
Good to see the Reo name retained given its long link with John A Gilberts bus enterprise.
