Make that 385 (although not confirmed). Based on this image from the Little Oaks Sanctuary newsletter:

A gas MAN (possibly 388 - but not 386) now has an AOA - not sure what for though - one of the words was "Wow" and it was a lime green sort of colour.
I passed the bricks last night and it was over near 860 ???

Yes;, it is 388. The 'WOW" wording says "WOW Look at us now". (It's just begging for a photo with LWF.)

I swear I saw the Orana AOA on a CNG Scania on Wednesday.  But I never caught up close enough to see the fleet number.

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,
Has only taken 4 months, but 108 is in the process of being re-sprayed into (old) corporate livery.

Spotted a MAN diesel with advertising for '13SICK' on the side of it. Was an AOA mainly white in colour. Couldn't get close enough to grab the fleet number. No doubt someone will see it in service today, was on a 200 southbound when I saw it at around 730 at GMP

I believe 423 is in an AOA similar to that description. I couldn't make out what it said but I saw it on Hindmarsh at Callam (on an 3) on Tuesday around 1700). Thus leaving 349 and 422 in the"Domain" AOA.

One of the most hideous horse floats around at the moment.  One Tuggy driver who copped it for his shift yesterday lamented that unlike his passengers, at least he didn't have to look at it!

Spotted Bus 383 in the WTF AOA, to describe to those who haven't seen it. Bus 383 has a lot of red & words like supporting the community.

The National Home Doctor AOA seems a bit bland. I prefer artwork with pictures & colours.

Had a close look at 441 (Vikings Club) - it's not the same as the one on 383. 383's ad promotes the people Vikings employs, 441 promotes the local athletes they sponsor - and it depicts those athletes as though they were all crammed onto the bus.

So that's what was in the back window...

A number of AOA buses (including 354 and 361) are sporting what appear to be newly applied rear end reflective tiger stripes - these buses are heavily camouflaged in dark, matte patterned adverts (National Patios and King O'Malley's) which give rise to night time conspicuous / visibility issues.

I actually quite like 441's AOA. I've only seen 383's once or twice so can't really comment on it

Thanks. Just looked like one from the angles shown (other than the mentioned part at the back). Ironic about the crimestoppers part especially with the history of the Irises and where they originated from...

In some parts of the USA, AOA is banned altogether while in Norway, bus operators cannot apply AOA wraps over windows because the regulatory authority there considers that wraps over windows pose safety hazards.

Anyone aware whether there are any Australian jurisdictions with similar restrictions or bans on AOA?

For those who haven't followed us on Twitter or Facebook, 403's AOA is for Clarity Financial Group.

Meanwhile, here's a bit of a different look at the AOA process - the proof of concepts for 441: http://vikingssquash.asn.au/vikingsCMS/node/801

It hasn't been mentioned here (on twitter I think it was) but 333 is in an AOA like 383 and 441 for the Vikings group...

And 349 back in ACTION green and Orange :) Now they just need to deal with cursed 348's AOA (If you haven't guessed, I hate this AOA as do a couple of drivers...this bus also seems to be everywhere I go...)
