ACTION Buses with Names

Facebooktwitteryoutubeinstagrammail

Many of ACTION’s vehicles have been named by staff.

All Scania L94UB Buses were named by workshop staff at Tuggeranong Bus Depot. The names were placed on a small label above the Scania Badge on the rear of the bus, as well as inside the bus under the customer service charter. Some labels have since disappeared due to removal or weathering.

In June 2012, naming of the MAN and Scania K320UB buses based at Tuggeranong Depot commenced.

The only Belconnen Depot based bus to have been given a name is Bus 319, an Irisbus Agoraline. Its name, Big Merv, is sign-written on the back of the bus and also appears in a plate inside the vehicle. The name commemorates a longtime ACTION driver who has since passed away.
