Some Sydney Mercedes O405NH's have the same Maccas ad too...

I got 469 yesterday and I'm 99.99999999% sure it had the ad.

I'm pretty sure it does too...

I got 469 yesterday and I'm 99.99999999% sure it had the ad.

I was on 469 again today and it absolutely definitely didn't have it.

The #s I managed to get out of all the Macca's Monopoly ads i've seen so far are 466, 467, 482, 485, 488.

469 is the only 1 which I have recorded without this ad so far, it didn't have it when I was on it this afternoon.
To add to the list of STAGs with the Macca's ads=470, 471, 476, 487.

To sum up the Data, the STAGS with the Macca's ad are:

464: Yes?
465:?
466:YES
467:YES
468:?
469:Definitely NO
470:YES
471:YES
472: ?
473: YES
474: ?
475: NO
476: YES
477: NO
478:YES
479: YES (Lachie)
480:?
481: YES
482: YES
483:?
484:No
485:YES
486:NO
487:YES
488:YES
489:?

Articulated buses: 513, 519, 522, 527, 528

Like 510 (as reported on twitter), 521 now has a rear ad covering the whole back of it...its something to do with speeding...that's I all I say of it anyway...It must've received it somewhere this morning as it didn't have it the first time I saw it (0800ish?)...Or at least I don't think it did...

Whats with NSW Policing advertising on ACT buses? why don't they advertise on NSW Buses instead. Would think that makes more sense...

Showing NSW residents that NSW Police are anywhere at anytime.
Pity they didn't put these ads on the Irisbuses when they were being sent interstate for works. Or even on the new Scania's being delivered.

Just wondering about the Right ad on 442, it says


"Harry [picture of a dog] loves gardens"


and gives no indication what its advertising or the company/ organisation it is advertising for...
any ideas?

Fleet wiki has been updated to include reported / known advertising changes, but it is far from complete (given how many ads there are at the moment).

So if you want to report more ads: note them here, send me a PM, send a message to ACT Bus on facebook, post a photo to facebook (or in a facebook message) or use the "contact us" form.

The Europe holiday expo and Maccas monopoly ads were not included in the update since these ads have been, or are about to be, removed. New McDonald's ads have appeared this week on STAGs and artics, but can't be sure if it's the same vehicles as previously reported.

A few of them are the same (520, 523...etc)

things to look out for include SUBWAY Ads on the RIGHT of STAGs. Also, allhomes miniads covering the window of MANs & SCANIA 94UBs have had a white thing put around it, to cover the entire top half of the back and cover all parts of the window.

Makes me miss the days of consistent ad sizes. Cheaper companies seem to just make up different sizes/positions as they go, back in the Buspak days you'd pretty much always have them the same shape/size, nowadays the buses just look messy :(

Donut King side ads are starting to appear again.

One or both of the Nightrider full backs (422 & 425) have been replaced by a full back for Enlighten festival.

Is that the side ads only over the windows? Saw one the other night, only thing I can think of is that they don't want to rip up the paint when they take off the ads :-P

Those are the ones. The irony being most of the buses they're on have panel damage which would be covered if they had ads on them..

853 has it too. Thats a good bus. But I am sick of my view being restricted by AOA and these new ads. At least 10 of the buses I got today had some sort of ad in my way! Really annoying! >:(

It's all good to enjoy buses and have an interest but a little life balance is required. You guys are getting intense about the placement of an ad.
Could it be possible the ads are being put there to reduce the sun and therefore heat entering the bus?

518 now has a rear ad for Bendigo Bank. Same to assume that other artics have, or will receive this ad too. Most STAGs I've seen lately do not have any ads.

Don't know if it was luck or intentional, but Go Transit have discovered that the Renault bus-back ad can be placed between the top of the engine grille and below the rear window on the PR100.3s. All they need to do is cut a hole for the brake light.

Currently only on 116, but likely to spread to the rest of the fleet soon.

I saw an artW at a distance today with two ads on the offside. One on each section of the bus. I don't know what it was for other than the fact that it was red.

Just use "artic". As we don't have anything other than Scania artics in the fleet, everyone knows what artic is referring to.
