Don't forget we are 6 days out from the tour and we have plenty of tickets left, I will release the full itinerary for the day after the allocation of NRL finals slots to insure we aren't caught in any traffic from a game.

And I was curious, given it's a Bike Rack equipped bus, will the option for Bike and Ride be available?  :-\

Lol, good thing I was planning not to take my bike with me then ::)

Also, is there going to be some sort of seat plan, or will it just be like any other time - sit where you like?

I was just thinking, cause you guys said you might do a Tuggeranong version of this sometime around December, how would you do Kambah Terminus (if that is one you'd think of passing)? cause lately due to all the construction that's been going on there lately, I'm not completely certain, but I think it's been destroyed and converted into a car pull-in. ???

Perhaps they'll do the tour in one of the supervisor vans and that should get around the issue.

I heard an iris bus or something would be used, not a van - that wouldn't make a difference anyway

Maybe a Keirs Coaster?
