Has anyone managed to grab a photo of 108's new livery? I haven't come across it as yet.

394's Capitals livery has been refreshed. Near side completely changed: now has a black background with two players. Rear and off side have been updated with new sponsors' logos (including removal of Canberra 100), and the missing panel has been restored.

UPDATE: Players on near side are Abby Bishop (#4) and Natalie Hurst (#7). Lauren Jackson remains on the off side.

A gas Scania has what I assume is the same Allhomes AOA, 353 or 355 I think.

This is what Bus 313 looks like in its new AOA for All Homes:



Taken on Marconi Crescent, Kambah while on a 162.


Then while we are at it, this is the new side of Bus 394:



Taken while Bus 394 was sitting outside the AIS Arena for an hour before Friday's game.

354 is still wearing its OMF advertising.

I got a very quick look at 391 this morning - looks rather good.

Oops. "Guaranteed" was misspelled on 391's AOA - there are stickers covering up the errant E, probably a temporary measure until it can be fixed.

Meanwhile, a new AOA should be revealed on 312 tomorrow.

108 seen parked at the back of B depot today with wrap removed in Floriade livery, Im guessing it will be re-sprayed or receive a new wrap shortly, ACTbusspotter also reports 142 is back in corporate livery so it's be safe to say 140/1 are the same or will follow shortly!

Item in today's Canberra Times correctly observes that the Centenary of Canberra "year" doesn't actually finish until Canberra Day 2014....hence the Centenary Column on City Hill (designed to look like the never completed Commencement Column on Kurrajong Hill / Capital Hill) will be unveiled on Canberra Day this year.

Also on 422 and 349. On closer inspection it seems to be for the Domain lift out in the Canberra Times

Yes, it is "The Canberra Times" version of Domain.

There are at least two gas buses which have received this wrap; besides 349, the other is a low numbered bus, possibly 330 from memory.

The Domain AOA does include the website address, so it is advertising both.

The other T depot bus won't be 330: that's already being used.

I saw it on a 3 this morning and a 300 this arvo. I think the offside looks nicer, but agree that the logo is huge.

Wish they'd stop cutting a rectangle piece out for the fleet numbers. How hard is it to stick some white ones on top of the wrap?

Bus 361 has the King O'Malleys AOA.
Bus 354 is now in an AOA for National Patios. This was applied some time this week,  as it was spotted in the OMF AOA on Tuesday.

Noticed one of the Scania gas buses appears to have lost some of its orange duco - apparently as a result of a vinyl advert being removed. Doesn't look good.

Hint accepted.

These photos were taken by a Transit Graphics employee, and posted to TG's facebook page.







I note the ad shows "Manuka Oval" and not "Star Track Oval", since it's only called Startrack during football season.
