Yeah, it would have been very unlikely to have a new bus! But I'm glad the mystery has been solved!

S5100 on a 412 this morning - guess it was a cover trip as tags aren't generally used on 412s.

6004 parked outside Yutong at Virginia this morning minus the City Loop wrap.
It’s back on City Loop again.

Artics use to service the old 178 New Farm-Dutton Park during Expo 88 at night . I remember catching L990 City Express Artic from Expo all the way to the terminal at Kingsholme Street. Not to sure if they seviced on the old 177 route.

Looks like 1585 (actually 1858) is continues to come out every day. I wonder when they will fix the error!

Observed today that all the “Brisbanes new bus network” stickers have been removed from bus windows today, I thought they were quite restrictive of the view so welcome change.

Great news. Now to get rid of the advertising all over the windows that makes it impossible to see through when it rains and acts like an internal mirror at night.

BT has at least gotten rid of the advertising AoAs from a few years ago. And CityGlider wraps are somewhat better now. BT is quite extreme in the way that you won't find a single bus without advertising wraps unless it's a recently removed special wrap/AoA bus (like 1463, 1334, 2873)

This YouTube site is pretty good as it gives you a virtual ride of many bus routes in Brisbane
