It's now reappeared labelled as Light City Buses - Torrens Transit and as work in progress. Basic details are listed but the vehicle histories are currently missing.

The entire original Light City Buses lists [as at 11 June, 2018] is now in Historic Lists, still with all vehicle histories.

Each entry is being reloaded for the new list.

It would appear that this is correct that Torrens Transit now own Light City Buses,although there are no indications anywhere yet.

A Torrens Transit staff car was spotted at TTP earlier today, that's one small sign.

They now own Broad Spectrum or just officially taken over the operations? I have seen several drivers still wearing Transfield uniforms which is surprising in a way.

Torrens Transit purchased Light City Buses. No drivers have yet received uniforms.

They acquired the Light City Buses operation, not the entire Broadspectrum company. Remember, Broadspectrum does more than just running buses: http://www.broadspectrum.com/industries-overview

Noticed today that Light City Buses have been using Artics on their North-South routes-this is most unusual as normally on a non football day(Adelaide Oval) they only use rigids.
Maybe this is as a result of Torrens Transit taking over their operation,as they have artics out on Saturdays.
