RTI is showing up for at least some, if not all TT services at the moment. But nothing for Southlink services, including the hills.

GA 1 and GA 2 services today are being operated by Mile End, Port and St Agnes depots.
Renumbering of Torrens Transit's Edinburgh North fleet has taken place overnight with the number 2 being removed from the beginning of the fleet number.

Doesn't that mean some numbers will be repeated? I thought that once a number had been used on a particular vehicle it wouldn't be used on another.

All ex Southlink buses staying at Edinburgh North have been renumbered(2 has been deleted so their fleet no is 3 digits).

I actually saw 2832 still hadn’t been been renumbered to 832 yet, but is listed on app as 832 so just a case of getting to it I guess. I noted 2568 and 2582 were on Outer South services today so must have been transferred to Busways? However 563/564/569/579 were still in Outer North. Is there a full list yet of those buses which have transferred to Busways or from Lonsdale to Edinburgh North?
Must say it was something different seeing St Agnes buses 1522, 1524, 1818 on 224/225/229 routes today too.

2858, 2522 both at Aldgate/Barker. Can’t confirm 2523 but it’s rumoured to be in the hills too. I wonder if 2857 is in the hills too, which would give a clean run from 2854-2858

Ironically, 3375’s former number is 2858
First person on 822, 865 (2016 re-route).
Last person on 164, 867, 868

Several MAN NLs and at least 3 Scanias still with 2xxx fleet numbers sitting in St Agnes yard today, near NE Road. I’m guessing there’s probably a few more track buses sitting at Ed N than were what at Ed.

Fleet lists is your friend but it’s still under construction as a lot of buses have moved to unknown locations
For any fleet lists updates please PM me for different sightings at depots or out on the road and I’ll forward them on.

ex SouthLink M.A.N 18.280 2744 has arrived at TT Port depot but not sure if it’s permanent.

I noticed a 229F to City this morning listed as 247. Didn’t get to see it up close but it was definitely a MAN NL 202 so wondering if the 22** buses at Edinburgh North may have reverted to their old Serco Numbers? Or just a coincidence but I wasn’t close enough to see the number of it

246 was the Serco vehicle involved in that crossing acident in 2002. So I don't think this is smart (re)numbering considering it's an identical build. May trigger flashbacks. Since ex 2724 was renumbered to 2751 after an incident with less severe consequences, it is sensible to avoid using this number.

It may be sensible to number this vehicle to 419 or even 285 given that it is ex 2201 from Lonsdale (Serco number). But that is under the assumption that it is service with TT, which I have not been able to confirm.

Do they still have the rule "once you've had an accident while driving an Adelaide metro bus your not allowed to drive one again ?
