The Phonj wrote:Saw a new Mitsubishi Rosa 1314 headed into the City along Anzac Hwy during this morning's peak. Judging by the fleet number application I suspect it to be a Light-City unit. Was in Yellow AdMet livery with no overhead desto display - I did not see if there was any destination equipment installed onto the bus.
1314 is a Mitsubishi Fuso (the newer version of the Rosa) and looks like a Rosa in every way. It's been in service for a few weeks and is sometimes used as a relief vehicle for drivers. It has a Hanover destination fitted into the front windscreen with a small control panel like those seen in Adelaide's 18.280s and O405s. The sign display is single-line, although I haven't seen it while in use so I'm not sure how it displays some of the more complicated route info!
It looks something like this: http://www.hanoverdisplays.com/index.ph ... 19&lang=en
Move the mouse over the 'True Curved LED' tab, it looks something like that but only takes up the near-side half of the windscreen.
Time to get bus priority and tram priority through the city and suburbs.
Time to police bus lanes which are used by arrogant car drivers.
Time to work for better timetables and better connections.
