Re: Transport for Brisbane Discussion / Questions 2021

Question here,
I know the MAN 18.310s are being progressively withdrawn on Mannheim. But I'm guessing that not every bus that is listed gets a buyer? If the bus is unsuccessful in being bought, are they scrapped or kept there until further notice?

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

Do you think that with W it is a result of the half filled gas cylinders and the allotted bus has to go back for refill so a diesel bus from E and T is pulled in?

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

2913 is in service
Also, is it really necessary to have a 199 every 5 minutes at 4pm?
I'm on one right now and there are three people on board

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

The 111 should be a very easy route to cover and even if you've never driven it before, because it's all busway, it will be much easier, say if you needed to do a 444 run

Buses are not necessarily delivered in order - but clearly not in this case as noted.
A good example is W1511 which was delivered a few good months after the highest numbered gas MAN, 1523

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

I'm guessing Councils strategy was to get 2817 and 18 at Virginia roaming the north side at Virginia and 48 and 49 roaming the west but it looks like they all ended up at Toowong

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

They're still being used at some depots.
At Toowong new Diesel buses are coming in and drivers prefer those so gassies aren't being used that much

Willawong and Garden city the drivers have no choice so they're still out and about

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

I remember a report saying that the previous batch of B8As would only be used on busway routes because they'd be too big to fit in stops.

So I'm guessing yeah that's why as well

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

Usually its confirmed if the bus stays for a few weeks or the physical lettering has changed, not if it just operates one service. There's a high chance that a TAG broke down from G so the S went to fill it in, or lets say a S did a 120 down to G then did a 130 up with a tag

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

High demand north-side Routes that could run bendies are 330, 333, 340, 385 (of course!!!) and 390 in my opinion. I think you could put a bendy or a TAG on a 444 in peak or a P443. The 3pm runs are always at capacity because of schools, and the 5-6pm ones are pretty full. I don't know how practical...

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

Seems to have been a major incident on Coronation drive, all buses there are at least 35 minutes late.
Also 2902 is out on a 411.

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

Seems weird that BT will change the fleet number even if the change is just for a few weeks
Like how 1445 was on loan from W to T for even a few days I think and they changed all the signs to T.
A bit of a waste for buses they know will be loans to be honest
