Re: Political discussion

There are too many informal votes cast when it to elections for all levels of government so there are people on the voting roll that have no interested in voting witch only turn up to vote so they avoid getting fined by getting marked off the roll

Re: Your Favorite Livery(ies)

Really pre 2010 when state mandated livery didn't exist I felt like operators use to put a lot more effort in making their fleet stand out. Sadly most days it's just a white bus with a random stripe applied somewhere along the bus, sure it's better than just being plain old boring right but I like ...

I would assume (I hope) there would be a body redesign, considering the current XDi body is 9 years old. I don’t love the Bustech bodies how I love Volgren and Custom bodies, but at the end of the day it is still Australian made quality. That would be different from Bustech as all bodies in their p...
