Bus 572 features an ad for... Something red??
And a couple of stags also advertise a nursing home too.

One and the same. But for St Basil's Home Care instead. It is on at least 572, 571, 553, some STAG's and at least one MAN diesel.

You sure 406 isn't an AOA as per 360?

If it is, that AOA would look better on 406...The Gas pod on 360 makes it look odd...

It wasn't when I walked past it, one side was ad free, the others had C5 all over it, but an honest thought was that it was a half baked job and the bus had to leave for its next run from the depot before they had finished the AOA.... Well not really AOA at the moment.

Should've been pretty easy to tell - did the nearside ad cover the entire side of the bus, or did it cover from after the front doors to almost the rear?

I've seen buses go out with half an ad before, so it could be possible that it was an unfinished AOA I guess.

Yesterday at about 4:10 pm in the city. Was going to take a few shots but the bus left before I could.

Covered the entire bus... but the other side of the bus was blank.

Differently styled Quest Care ad.

Origen energy are now advertising on a few new scanias (side ads) with Oporto a small side advert too.

375 has an interior ad for the Green Army on the inside, top of the driver side window beside luggage racks. First time I have seen an interior ad of that style (or any ad inside a green bus)

948 has a new ad for oporto on the right, one of the square ones like the ones showing up on some of the MANs. I believe this is the first new ad to be applied on a orange bus for some time (ignoring the BCC ones) and the first of its style on a orange bus

I've seen it in some MAN before - it looked no different to any other inside-bus advert though.

Meanwhile in a planet far away, someone at RiotACT is having a rant about 442's very descriptive righthand side ad. http://the-riotact.com/who-is-harry-and-why-does-he-love-gardens-action-bus-ad/154983

I'm talking on the interior of the window itself, rather than the grey plastic

Same thing has appeared in 380.

I think it works well, and would like to see the Fare stickers are applied on the window next time around (in the "green buses" anyway - the Renaults should continue where they are).

I've seen an all-over-side ad on Euro 5 bus 390, which is strange, cause I thought with 390 being the bus with all the special little MAN stickers all over it, that it would never had ads on it, oh well...

Can I ask, what does AOA stand for? i understand it's to do with the ads, but i can't find the definition anywhere.

On 390, you'll find that it is in Australian National University AOA (at least the last time I checked it was in AOA) so all the sides have advertisements as well as the back of the bus. The MAN stickers that recognise it is the first euro 5 stickers are at least still on the back of the bus. You can see them from inside the bus itself. The stickers are likely to be ripped off if they are in poor condition (I would think.)

What does AOA stand for? I understand it means All Over Advertisement.

On the subject of 390 and stickers, why was it that 374 never received any?

New restrictions are coming into place for junk food ads etc. I suppose this means there'll be no more maccas, oporto, subway, and half the bus ads. Refer here for more info:

Quick!! Someone get a photo of 948's ad before it disappears!

Things is though, Oporto and McDonald's have paid for a contract on the buses so they will be ripped off if they get taken off before the due date.

Extra ad-on: The news about the new advertising laws reveals the fact that the promotion of fossil fuels will no longer be allowed as adverts on buses either. But I believe that 963, 967 and 971's taking action liveries will be safe because they encourage fossil fuels to be conserved.

There is now a new Scania which has a right hand side advertisement for STAR WARS.

I wonder what will happen to the Gaspods which have ACTEWAGL stickers. They don't directly advertise fossil fuels, but ACTEWAGL are a gas and electrics company.

Not actually FOR Star Wars - it's a Bags to Go ad. I assume there's a Star Wars range of baggage.

Either the ban doesn't apply yet or else Zambrero and Subway are not regarded as "junk food", since new ads for both are appearing.

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?
While (at last sighting) the ad on 442 remains unchanged, there is a new side ad on 318 which has both "Harry Loves Gardens" and Willow Park Nursery.

So there's your answer, finally.

They're advertising Cadbury Oreo Chocolate and I think that's an interesting combination.

Allhomes.com.au have hit back in the advertising war. They've now got AdShels and are rolling out both large and small side ads on buses.

No new AOAs though. Yet.

Go Transit have been awarded the new advertising contract for the following 3 years.

Nothing really new in the contract, except this time 20 buses must be kept clean. Plus City Loop & trial buses are to remain ad free.

In other news, a new ad for 104.7 is coming this year.

944 has a rear ad below the window for Go Transit advertising, the first non-BCC ad on a Renault for quite some time (a green that is absolutely revolting on the orange livery).
