Re: STA Observations - January to June 2018

Over the last few days, I've noticed two different T buses have a desto that reads something like "Dest file..." with numbers and a code.

Re: STA Observations - January to June 2018

1935 doors wouldn't shut this afternoon. Stuck in the middle of the road at the intersection of Lilyfield Road and Norton Street.

Driver missed a stop on the 444, stopped to let someone off in the road, doors wouldn't shut afterwards. Mechanic came and it got driven back to L depot.

Re: Northern Beaches BRT: B-Line to transform Northern Beach

Today a friend of mine spotted a B-Line decker at Northmead heading towards Parramatta. Any idea why it is so far out of its territory?

From what I've been told, there is a bus that will be painted into PTC Blue and White. I don't know what the fleet number is or if this livery is confirmed.

I'm not sure if the Police or STA own it. I had a friend who took a picture of it the other week, and it was still at FOID. It looks like it's a source for parts.

The driver instructior used to be my school bus driver. On another note, I never knew Burwood did driver training in Bankstown.

3481 still has Ryde's run plate, I'm not sure if the accreditation has been changed yet.
