I don't think buses are going to be on the news for awhile, I'd be surprised if they are.

2201 and 2202 now #246,247.
Still a few more to appear in the fleet lists.
2241-45 [likely 248-252].
2620-25 [BCI Cummins; 2622-25 noted as owned by Keolis]. Possibly no longer needed.
2744-45.
2854-57 [previosuly suggested as Aldgate].
The four Rosas 2602/3/5/6 ... may have gone to Link SA or somewhere else in Keolis Group.
407 [ex 2407] is in the "Keolis Downer as at 04/07/2020" historic list [operator code error].

2854-2856 (ex-Aldgate) seem to be 854-856 at Torrens now
2857 (ex-Lonsdale) also there as 857

I think 2744-2745 went to Port as 247/277.

All other Keolis owned vehicles are currently at the LinkSA Pooraka depot, although I would assume they’ll be moved around as required.
First person on 822, 865 (2016 re-route).
Last person on 164, 867, 868

Thanks Lt. Commander Data for 854-857 - they were updating so quickly, I failed to catch those.

247 is ex 2202 WDF512; 277 is as you noted, the former 2744 [WZB277].
2745 WZB279 [using the search function] has not been noted in a new list... [should have used that search function earlier]!

I found 2241-45, now as 241-245, so that covers them too.

Contrary to what fleetlistd said, 2854 seems to be doing an Aldgate shift tonight (I physically saw it)

Thanks for that as I would be surprised that the Hills lost any of their artics as they need them all for normal and school bus services.

I was wrong but the the 2 bus drivers they showed on the news are the best Adelaide metro bus drivers I know of that never have troubles, I don't think they'd need Perspex shields.

Three MAN 18.280 HOCL-NL transfers from Southlink to Torrens Transit
2744 WZB277
2745 WZB279
2750 WZJ266

Fleet lists has
2744 as 277;
2745 - not noted.
2750 as 275.

Based on TT, suggesting 2744/5 are 275/7, might be that 2750 is incorrect [did it go to Lonsdale?].
Would be good if sightings can confirm them.

RESOLUTION .... Fleet Lists now has 2745 at Lonsdale... so the Torrens Transit List remains correct...... plus 407 added to Torrens Transit and 2854 to Southlink, Aldgate.

New timetables for routes with changed timetables are now available.
Don't know how easy it is to pick up at Adelaide Railway Station? wondering if its like the previous Info Centre, where it was self-selection?

2856 and 2858 are sitting on the front track of Aldgate depot, contrary to fleetlists having them as 856 and 858 at EN.

Would make sense to send 2857 up there too

There hasn't been any new Bustech's into service for several weeks. Last one was 1067(which has been off the road for almost 2 weeks?).
Wondering if Morphettville now have their full allocation? If so where will the next lot go?
