You'll find they will be released from government ownership, which would give to companies to purchase them outright or hand them back.

Re: [Sep 2014] SA Transport observations

It appears that Transfield(Light-City Buses) is about to open a new depot at Salisbury(presumably for C1/500/501/502 services). An ad in today's Advertiser for bus drivers mentions vacancies at the 3 existing depots,plus Salisbury. Obviously must be soon-will be interesting to see its location. Nea...

Re: Adelaide Metro CC CB80 bodied Scania K280UB

I don't think its the build quality, you have to think of the money side of things.

The less you pay the less quality of the bus.

Re: Redy2go - Sydney Airport

They have 2 reserved spaces at domestic between T2 and T3, that would cost alot by itself.

Don't seem to be carrying many people so far but good luck to them.

Re: [June 2014] SA transport observations

I wonder why this new Scania was outside Custom in Royal Park - it was built in Sydney at Villawood, because a source spotted it whilst he was at work Scania Prestons. My question if it was already finished why would it be sitting at the same company's factory in a different state. Perhaps more tha...

Noticed yesterday that Scania artic 1103 has had a new engine installed (same as the ones in the CB80 bodied artics). No idea when this occurred, but does anyone know what went wrong with its original motor? Yeah I've noticed 1103 with a shorter gear ratio it seems to be more K280ish/K360ish. Diff ...
