Re: CDC Group News 2020

Seems like all the destos on the Optimuses have been reverted back to their old font, especially at the back of the bus. #O145 and #O174 both sporting the old font format. Prefer that anyways, easier to see compared to the new font trialled up until now. #145 has the updated destination file fitted...

Re: CDC Group News 2020

Not sure how common this is but I think I just saw a Wyndham based Volgren CR221L operating the 625 to Elsternwick service. Has this bus been transferred to Oakleigh or is it still Wyndham based? I say this because the bus number and depot sticker was on the top right hand corner of the bus, which ...

Re: Victorian Route & Timetable changes 2020

Route 605 has had it's third terminus change in just two and a half years.

The route has been further extended up Queen Street to the corner of Queen & A'Beckett Streets due to recent works on William Street making the old Flagstaff Station terminus redundant.

Re: CDC Group News 2019

Just saw on fleetlists that Huntingdale is receiving bus #171, an articulated bus, which I think is a first for CDC Huntingdale. Is this designed to be operated on the 601, or are other routes going to be utilising this bus too? This artic has been designed for use on Route 601. Some routes will be...

Re: CDC Group News 2019

Seems like the hybrids are finally coming on to the 625/626 from Monday based on this Hybrids have not been given the green light to operate elsewhere other than on the 605/630 in the short term. This diversion was due to CDC's frustration with PTV over the lack of action on the Well St Rail Bridge...

Re: CDC Group News 2019

Also observed on weekend 605 trips. All 3 buses observed last Sunday on 630 and 605 were hybrids. The arrival of the Hybrid’s has also seen Oakleigh stop using L94UB Scania’s and Denning Low Floor monocoques on weekend services. Ah that makes more sense cheers. 623 usually uses older buses, so make...

Re: CDC Group News 2019

Could the hybrids work route 612? Route 612 should be OK as well as Route 623 on weekdays given there’s no low obstacles on these routes. The Hybrid’s wouldn’t be able to run weekend 623’s due to most 623’s through run with Route 624 (ie a service dead runs from Glen Waverley to Oakleigh to run bot...

Re: CDC Group News 2019

Seems like all of CDC Oakleigh's hybrid buses are on the 630 for now. I've seen 152, 157, 159, 160, 161 & 162 all operating the route over the past week. I guess the straight section along North Rd makes it easier to test out, as there's less turns for the drivers to master on the new buses, plus s...

I understand they are ex-SmartBus livery (and apparently still SmartBuses internally) but can't they afford the plastic wrap? In terms of Tr...

It has always been a Wyndham/Werribee bus since early 2015, It was only on loan to Oakleigh during December to assist with the Chadstone Staff shuttles.
