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

Anyone know why 948's was removed?

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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!

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.

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!) :)

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.
