Perhaps it has already moved to Freo then - anyone seen 1971 or 1972 up that way yet?

1970 onwards are all Fremantle buses now. At a guess I would say they were held back at Rockingham a little bit while those last few 2000s were at refurb.
Currently working on my bus photography site where I'm aiming to photograph every Transperth bus in Perth - have (almost) everything!

Here's an idea. Check on page 26 to see this was mentioned (like it already is mentioned before) before posting the same thing. 😒 not that difficult

Mate, I am not trying to try and start beef, but this board isn't that busy. You won't have to scroll back very far (at most, one page) to figure if the relevant information has been posted or not. It's not a case of posts being filtered out, it's a case of you either not bothering or not caring enough to search if you're posting information that has been posted by other members previously.

This isn't the first, second or even 10th time this has happened, so out of the best interests of everyone on this board can you perhaps be a bit more diligent in future?

I was unable to take a photo, however ex-1128 is now registered 1HCF353 and no longer carries Perth Bus n Boat decals. Sighted at the Caltex cnr Manning and Wyong in Bentley, but most likely was there only for a fuel stop and has moved.

Ex. 22TRANSWA/Adams C105 appears to be in the Northern Territory with an unidentified operator, and is being used for shuttles to and from the quarantine centre.

The only notable bus I observed on emergency Stirling-Whitfords rail replacement this afternoon was a temporarily re-activated 1228.

1199 running a yellow cat is normal, as it was put back into service along with 1188 a few months ago to run the CATs.

Been seeing it for several weeks already. One of the very few in the Perth region still active. These days it's almost all Volvo buses on the roads.

2579 has new AOA of insurance with blue color (I forget the name).

speaking of NH that still in perth which one that they still in service (Beside 1188 and 1199). also it look like 1188 and 1199 is the easiest vehicle to find if you want to ride NH for the last time. because most of karrinyup NH now i think already in storage and only use for Rail replacement.

Path Transit's 2723 and 3108 became the first buses to travel through High Wycombe Station which is currently under construction.

Worth noting that I've mentioned this already and it has the 'HIF' AOA.

Were those 2 vehicles on revenue service or just a training run?

3118 in service at Wangara

Spotted 1969 on a 910 in the CBD today so that's now a Freo bus

Saw ex-Swan OC 2090 parked up in Rockingham Depot this afternoon
