That's the bus I seen thought it was 70 is it a charter bus now or coach? Since it's past the 25 years limit?

I am to believe 20 is up for sale was told by a driver yesterday.

Unit 20 Mercedes has been sold to a Bus Operator in Tasmania but it is still in the depot. Unit 70 has been repainted into the same colour scheme as the older ivecos in the Red and yellow but is mainly used for Charters and School runs. The old unit 74 Scania is being converted into a Motor Home.

2 new express Ivecos have arrived at Red Bus and some of the new fleet info is below. Both of these units are in the Transport NSW Colour scheme.

unit 20 Iveco Metro , Express , Body Date 01/14
Unit 74 Iveco Metro , Express , Body Date 01/14

Usually when an old bus is withdrawn, the new bus will take the old bus fleet number
