I searched the word "moustache" on this thread, for nil result. So, what's the story behind the moustaches on the Bustechs?

Their latest contract stated they had to repaint and they did while other operators did not.

I have also been wondering that but I dont think it has anything to do with this thread.

CDC and Transdev will take a big leap in the next coming months as they receive deliveries for the Epping to Chatswood shut down.

Exactly right. Plus a reasonable amount to come shortly for STA and then Busabout.

With most of the buses in Region 15 built 2009 and later being some type of MAN chassis with a Bustech VST body I know the body of the next batch of new buses for Busabout will most likely be the Bustech VST but I would be suprised if the chassis of the buses are anything other than the MAN 19.320 HOCL-R-NL

So looking through CDC's fleetlists I've come across 8121 MO from Morisset and apparently it changed from Morriset livery on 27/08/2016 to Transport NSW Livery. Only for it in the last month (17/02/2018) to go back to the old Morriset livery from the Transport NSW one.
https://fleetlists.busaustralia.com/ind ... DC&busreq=

How common is it for buses to get Transport NSW Livery only later to go back to their old pre-transport NSW livery? I'm guessing 8121 MO isn't under Transport NSW operations anymore unless the data is an error?

Even more surprising is that it goes back to the Morriset livery instead of CDC's canary yellow livery.

Just wondering if there is a stipulation in the Region 6 contract for repaints like PBC or if they are not similar in that respect.

I have not run a summary since March last year but when I tried to run one today the figures are crazy with over 8000 buses in TNSW livery with every bus in every country fleet included.

No doubt scripting problems which have popped up all over the fleetlists since measures were implemented to update the server PHP version. We are attempting to progressively correct these.

TSA's takeover of region six will give a small boost I'd imagine, if the sight of ex red metrobus Euro 3 Volvo B12BLEA 1668 is anything to go by.

Or did I also see 2252 tonight as well sporting no advertisements? (I could be mistaken!)

Seeing transperth buses in their livery (I just came back from Perth) seemed to influence things here.... I'm sure in time, most of the buses will be in NSW livery just like perth buses.

Every mainland state and the ACT have a universal livery issued by the transport agency of the state or territory so buses in Perth are in the green and silver PTA/Transperth livery and buses here in Sydney are in the blue and white TNSW livery

I personally am not an advocate of metallics for buses, unless they are a premium or commemorative livery (something Sydney's STA pulled off really well in the 1990s -their proudest period), but Perth's silver and green really shows up the rest of Australia by avoiding white and they really make the modern bodies look classy.

One would expect so, especially Hills bus since since both their M routes are being renumbered,

I noted a few Metrobuses in the Sta fleet have had the word Metrobus removed from them this was the stock for the 340
