I don't think it's been mentioned yet, but bus #1334 is now in AOA for Mortgage Choice.

Newton MAN SL202 CNG 859 is accompanying several Southlink buses whilst laying ovr at VS3 right now. Is this even permitted given they interact through completely different radio channels?

Doesn't matter. They're still AdMet buses so can do whatever and go wherever any other AdMet bus does. The annoying thing is the private coach companies that block layovers or pull up in silly places. Many of the drives are ex Admet so should really know better.

Bus Fleet list for Torrens Transit has been updated to reflect all the latest movements between depots, and the addition of 10 Scania CB 80's to the O-Bahn fleet.

And which SL202s have actually been retired as a result of the deliveries? 1624 was in service this week, along with 1625 plus one that's numbered one digit higher.

This is a bit frivolous, but the AdelaideNow website has an image of a high floor bus in KW St after dark, or before sunrise as the preview image for the article related to the rail closure this weekend. It reminds me that image of a retired ex Melbourne SL200 which is used at times.

At least if anything, the passengers pretty much have at least a 98% guarantee of the luxury and comfort of a CB80 for their journeys ...

Wouldn't this thread be more ideal to list the withdrawals? It was started in 2016 after 421 did it's last run. Has been dormant for a while now.

"North East Public Transport Study" cards being handed out by Adelaide Metro staff at city stops and OBahn interchanges this week. Seeking feedback on
* Options to extend O-Bahn services to Golden Grove
* Park 'N' Ride options
* Other opportunities to improve travel times, reliability and access

Sounds good, but why is the main picture being used on this card one of a MAN SL202 on the busway? You'd think they'd have a more up-to-date picture on file than one of a 27 year old bus that has been retired from service for at least 2 years. There are a couple of much smaller pictures on the card showing a couple of Scanias but the main one is an old high-floor. I tried to up-load an image of the card but failed, maybe someone else can.

I think this could be the one you mean. I happened to come across it recently, whilst I was surfing the web aboard bus 1385. The image is a little crooked, wasn't captured by me.
