I noticed today an Irisbus Agoraline in all over advertising for CatholicCare; I did not notice the fleet number, but it was operate the below trip.

(714) 16:53 City Bus Station to Fraser West Terminus

It is my assumption that advertisers must choose Irisbus vehicles for their AOA due to the cheapness; as they are the least used vehicles in the fleet, it must cost less to put an advertisement on them, as it would receive the least exposure.

Advertisers generally won't choose a vehicle, but rather a size/type of ad, presumably the advertising company would then see what vehicles are available and the design for the ad (if it's an AOA) may be changed slightly based on what type of bus it is going on, as different bodies will have minor differences such as positioning of grills, window lines etc. They wouldn't walk in and ask for an irisbus specifically, they would pay for the length of the ad as well as the size of the ad, its just bad luck if its on a bus that isn't on the road much.

Only got a brief glimpse but 443 appears to have a new AOA with Trevor Dickinson on it - maybe for his CMAG exhibition (which I haven't had the chance to get out to yet!)


It certainly is. On Monday just after Trevor's 'artist talk' at the exhibition, he showed me a small image of it. Could've sworn I saw 402, but later that day I saw 402, and it definitely didn't have it. He said it should be on there for about 3 months.

AOAs coming up to 12 months in August are: 436 406 & 315

So far, only 436 has been removed (new AOA as of today).

The next potential removals are: 319 (exhibition closes this weekend) and 441 (12 month contract). In December, these will be 12 months old: 306, 586, 508 & 521; and 3 months will have been reached for: 301 303 & 360.

Bus 503

Sighted 498 yesterday in AOA for Healthier Work ACT.

511 is out of its AOA, though it still has a bit of blue just above the windows on the driver's side of the bus.

Recent removals:
303 339 406

Expected potential removals:
301 360 (All homes)
441 (CIT)
443 (CMAG)
566 (National Museum)
508 516 521 (Healthier Work)

New AOAs have recently appeared for: National Capital Exhibition (463) and Charnwood Early Learning Centre (437 & 553).

511 has recently updated to change the frequently updated rear panel - bus is now advertising just Nine News Canberra.

Bus 503

306 is in AOA for Brindabella Christian College.

Barry Drive

306 is another Charnwood Early Learning Centre AOA. It has been joined by 544 & 586. Enough already.

King of Buses

434 now in AOA for CIT.

329 and 398 now in AOAs for AllHomes.

443 still wrapped in the Bunker Shelter exhibition AOA as of today, too.

May be slightly off topic (as far as the ACT is concerned), but State Transit have wrapped 2569ST, one of their Scania K280UB/Custom CB80 buses (the one with the trial orange LED Hanover desto, funnily enough), in a livery rather similar to 379/400, except with "Ride with Pride" as the slogan down the side. I suspect it *may* mean 400 might not be making a trip to Sydney this year (for Mardi Gras, anyway).

It was naked with a Menulog rear ad yesterday come to think of it.

I love that the term 'naked' is still being used in 2019 to describe a bus without ads :P

It's always the ones you least expect.

King of Buses and I have both seen 332 in AOA this week, but now at least we know to keep an eye out for that one.

508 was finally removed this week, but 443 still hasn't been (although my last sighting was last weekend). 442 hasn't been seen at all recently.

The next one due for removal (after 332) will be 428 which hits 12 months in June.

Sylvan Loves Buses

I saw 443 on Friday, still had the same wrap.

Barry Drive

547 AOA was removed - for about a day - then reapplied (last weekend).

Wraps have also come off 423 428 & 461 & 540  in recent weeks. The remaining BCC AOAs (549 & 581) may be removed this weekend or next week.

The only other AOA coming up to 12 months old is 425.
