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 on the bulkhead. Some labels have since disappeared due to removal or weathering.

In June 2012, names started to appear for other buses, mostly those based at Tuggeranong Depot.

Bus 319, an Irisbus Agora Line based at Belconnen Depot has been named “Big Merv” to commemorate a longtime ACTION driver who has since passed away. The name has been sign-written on the back of the bus and also appears in a plate inside the vehicle.

In 2012, ACTION used its Twitter account to invite followers to suggest names for the newly-delivered Scania K360UA articulated buses. While all of these buses have been named, many do not feature labels on the bus.
