354 stills has the strip of white in front of the front doors. Was also thinking today what little thought was put into making the "beat the summer heat" wrap worthwhile over winter

413 has also lost its allhomes wrap.
New AOA has been applied to 413: Australian Institute of Personal Trainers. From a quick glance it too features pole-dance training. But with a slight difference (this time, it's a male).

Correction: not pole dancing, but a rope.

427 has lost its AOA too. I think 381 may have too...not 100% sure, it may be 387 I've seen as it was from a distance

EDIT: Dodgy photo now attached. The driver of 303 floored it right as I took the photo...

Interesting...especially cause there a quite a few other buses with side ads for the same thing of practically the same design...362, 365 and several Diesel MAN's come to mind...

"A window seat isn't guaranteed, but our network sure is."

What? Your network is guaranteed? To do what? Explode into 1000 pieces? Kill all your customers?

And that AOA looks boring - infact, I have a nickname for it! "Bland N Boring." To many blank spaces!

It's the exact same for Perth, except the word Canberra is replaced with Perth of course.

And it has been confirmed that 406 now has the same full-bus wrap. (Yes: both sides.)

Fleet wiki was updated at 16:03 to report it. So yeah, the news was over 20 minutes old by the time you mentioned it.

And no, nothing on twitter yet due to a lack of photographs.

A source reports that 413 has lost its AOA today.

Have had no reports or sightings of 441 recently - its Vikings AOA was applied at the same time as 383.

Well your source is right. Interesting though that 413 was still wrapped as of this early morning. I sadly never shot a photo of this short-lived AOA.

I saw 441 the other day  on a 163, since seeing 383 without its AOA (most probably wednesday)

547 now apparently carries an AOA for Park 'n' ride. I'll leave the photo honours to King of Buses or you can go to eyebook and fetch them there. 547 went past twice today and I was to lazy to notice (or photograph) its new AOA.  >:(

Bus 355 now on the right-hand side of it, has had some of the ALLHOMES livery ripped off. I didn't get to see the left side of it though.

How long is a usual AOA applied for? 414 and maybe 419 seem to have been on for longer than usual..., both of which I have seen in the past few days?
