Quote from: Sir Pompously on September 07, 2010, 06:46:17 pm in the last two tours we have left Deanes out. Deanes is important to the ACT aswell, and has a much larger variety of vehicles available for hire.
QuoteThe tour will go ahead on the 27th. I got a quote from Deanes and the cost was through the roof. In light of that we will be using ACTION buses but ones that are unique to Canberra and to an extent Perth. We will be using a Dennis Dart fleet number 156 the last dart to enter service and 129 which is a Renault PR100.3a, the reason this one was chosen is the fact it is the only one that doesn't have a bike rack so we would be able to go into NSW and possibly still visit the Deanes depot.

Quote from: Metrobus on September 17, 2010, 12:24:54 amThe date has been changed to a date that should suit all, it is now the 4/12As Deanes will not hire out low floors so we will be hiring out one of their new Hino RN8Js and possibly later swapping that for the Leyland Lynx.As far as the ACTION bus goes that is still yet to be decided, won't be a dart as it will be impossible to find a driver willing to drive it so we will be going for a Renault PR100.3 possibly 113, 129 or 990 this is yet to be decided.

Quote from: MyWay on September 17, 2010, 11:00:57 amDon't forget 126. Although 113 is the best out of those IMO.
Quoteand frankly I don't want to be sitting on a dart all night.
