947 is still in the AOA, haven't seen the others this week though.

Anyone know why 948's was removed?

LWF

Because it looked pathetic, faded, off color and the AOA wrap was peeling off in areas.
They made the right decision IMO.

Buzz Killington

oh really? i hadn't really seen it up close.

Snorzac

947 is in a much worse condition than 948 was, just saw 899 in AOA and I saw 978 in AOA yesterday

Bus 400

977 also has the AOA still.

Snorzac

forgot to mention 758 is still in AOA

LWF

Yes, 948 is the only one to have the AOA removed to date.
The others will be removed eventually too.

Martin's reports on twitter that 108 is wearing a new AOA for ActewAGL/Transact.
QuoteBus 108 has an updated AOA for ActewAGL / Transact.

Sir Pompously

Cool, will have to get photos of it when I am next out!

Buzz Killington

Thought there might be one on the way, since their advertising has changed recently.

Sir Pompously

So can we assume large wind turbines?

Buzz Killington

I don't think Irisbus Rider appears in their advertising, so that'd be a no.

A board member is driving it tonight on a 13 so I am going to attempt a night shot of the new AOA outside my house

Ha ha ha, what a shame. And this after I just missed out on being in the Brindabella Christian College ads!

Pleased to see it's finally been updated, after being in a fairly poor state since its accident.

Snorzac

Picture coming in a few minutes, stand by.

Buzz Killington

Is the Floriade paint job underneath still?

Snorzac

I think so, the roof still looks cream anyway

Bus 400

It looks more professional compared to the previous AOA.

This AOA reminds me alot of the numerous liveries of 969 for the Canberra Centre. But i still think it looks good. :)

Busnerd

Never thought I'd say it but for a 'bus advertising' ad, it actually looks good!

Snorzac

Well you better get used to it, my source tells me there is another two Westfield AOAs coming, this is not an ACTION source...

p_stampy

It's from your mum isn't it.

Looks ok, just weird with an orange front.

hopefully they put it on 982 and 969 the naked buses.

King of Buses

NOT 982, it belongs within an Aboriginal/Reconciliation Livery like 990! :)

Buzz Killington

Word is that we may see our first "green bus" aoa...

Did anyone get a photo of it spending the day parked outside Westfield yesterday?

982 had its livery removed

Buzz Killington

I think you'll find he is objecting to a Westfield AOA in the hope that 982 will receive a new Aboriginal livery.

Busnerd

Well now that bus advertising is on the contract anything can happen :P

More importantly, did anyone get a photo of Anneliese Seubert?


Barry Drive

No sign yet of other Westfield AOAs but several PR100.3s now have large side ads between the front and rear doors.

Thanks to Bus 400 and Metrobus, 899 and 978 now carry all-over-advertising for IMB.


Full size version of photo can be viewed on twitpic

Image - Metrobus.

Word is that the campaign will not be limited to two buses - keep a look out for 947, 977 and 990 in particular.

Bus 400


743

I saw 899 today and thought the new scheme looks good. I think it's a novelty though that now those buses are greenish and list locations along the roofline - rather similar to NSW Free Shuttles!

Snorzac

It's the best wrap I have seen on an ACTION bus since 982/990 launch, they looked great before they faded!

I assume we're to thank those two for the photos not the fact that these AOAs have been done.

I think the hi-vis buses look ridiculous.

Busnerd

It does look pretty stupid! I'm not a fan...but its an AOA and I'm always a fan of more of them...

King of Buses

The new AOA does look considerably good. But I would rather a new livery on 982. Also a repaint of 990 would be nice. Hopefully we'll see a newer bus with a AOA soon. (hopefully a stag!) :)

Buzz Killington

Happened across 978 today, it looks very nice 'in person'

978 is normally parked at the City West layover about 9am on a weekday, if somebody wants a place to track it for photos.. I never have the time to take one.

Buzz Killington

Wonder if this news (if it proves accurate) will have an impact on 108?

Barry Drive

The side ads have been removed from the PR100.3s. Last days for 991s AOA?

Snorzac

978's great new look...

This was taken a few weeks ago, I've got three months worth of photos to post so yeah... this is the beggining.
