No sight of the electric buses as yet in Cairns. I believe they are due in service anytime now.

The continuation of repainting and refurbishing the buses has picked up again however. Below are the following are in white:
2601-2606, 2608-2615, 2618-2619, 2621-2625, 2828-2629, 2637-2639, 2642, 2696-2699, 2704, 3600, 3704

Sunbus 5710 involved in a serious crash outside Kawana Station on the 611 service this evening, the driver was unfortunately pretty hurt and was taken to hospital. Quite extensive damage to the front of the bus be out of service for a while I'm guessing. Alot of thoughts out to the drivers involved.

Almost all of Sunbus buses on the Sunshine Coast now have the Kinetic logo stickers on. Still a few with sunbus stickers but they'll be gone and changed within the week.
