A TAG is operating the 12:10am 450 home tonight. Didn’t see the fleet number as real time info not working but it passed KGS.

Hi there, I've noticed on the enthusiast Fleet-lists website for Brisbane Transport buses there's a listing for something called "Proxy Bus", there's very little details besides Horsepower, 2 wheelchair capacity & that there is 20 planned for delivery to Brisbane City Council. I'm not from Queensland myself but anyone able to potentially clue in what these may be?

It just looks like that the first 20 B8As (fleet numbers S1631-S1650) have been somehow enetered again under this name (whether it’s a bug or just a mistake when entering the data). Not sure why this is the case

Hope it won’t become the second C1894.

Imagine having to ring up bus control to explain that one!

I can't believe that the bus was almost OK to pass except for the air-con.

Interesting that Translink ran nightlink trains in the early hours of this morning.
NightLink bus services will not operate on Sunday night/Monday morning.

Three NightLink trains will operate on Monday morning:

Beenleigh line departing Bowen Hills - 3.43am
Caboolture line departing Roma Street - 3.42am
Ipswich line departing Bowen Hills - 3.52am
It's a start anyway when Public holidays fall on a Monday. A lot of people go out to the bars and clubs on a Sunday eve/night when Monday is a holiday. A good support Covid recovery measure as well.

This mornings 7:43am inbound 390 (from Enoggera Interchange) must have thought they were starting from Brookside. It got to Brookside at 7:47 then hightailed it to Enoggera after reading the run sheet correctly. It just left Enoggera at 7:58am, 15 mins late.

E2881 has its QUT AoA removed, two sides clean but keeping the QUT slogan at the back.

G1601 has carked it on a southbound 66 at Roma St this morning. The following 66 was pretty close to packed and took a good minute or so to board.

Now E2881 is back with new version of QUT AoA.

Not sure if it’s been noted but E2831 is now a clean skin.

Edited. Thanks for pointing out. Reckon that I’ve spotted it on CityGlider before.

Yeah, that is prevalent.during the Xmas season as well Seeing Xmas Greetings or Merry Christmas on the desto signs. It's not really a Christmas present if the bus doesn't pick up or drop off any passengers.
