Two at once! That's rare.

Only 4 more needed by end of June to get back to the original delivery schedule.

Saw 567 today on Adelaide Ave - nothing was on the desto but it was registered and had a bike rack so I'm guessing it was in service for the first time.

With a blank desto it wasn't logged into the Nxtbus system so was more likely a workshop test run. Pretty sure it only left B this morning as 568, 569 & 570 were in attendance at B this morning

I thought you could still manually turn the desto off or set it as blank...

You can, but given its a Tuggers bus that just left Belco that morning, the chances of it being in service yesterday are slim,

Bus 503, when did you see it on Adelaide Av?

567 was in service last night on a PM shift.

568 is in service. Was doing a 62 (as shown above) out of Tuggeranong about 1725ish tonight. She looked pretty shiny too :p

With 573 delivered, they've now caught up with the original schedule (573 was due today).

574 is due in two weeks, then it's 2 per month until November with 585 in December.

That's why it's at Tuggeranong behind 866 and 884 then...

Arrival of 577 at Tuggeranong confirmed - ACTION even tweeted a photo:


But there have been no sightings of 575 or 576.

Hmm...this source supposedly delivers the buses...I'll have to check this... 


572 is in service too now. According to a certain driver/board member, it has only done something like 800km's and smells really really new...he couldn't fault it from appearance though  ;D

575 and 576 were sent back to o Sydney apparently.

Also, according to TransitTimes, 573 is in service on a 163 right now

I believe 578 may be parked out the back of Tuggeranong workshops...not quite certain though as it may be 576 (I can't read 6's and 8's very well when in a moving bus especially through the trees between Athllon Dr and the workshop area).

Whether or not it was 578 last week doesn't matter now as I can confirm it is at Tuggeranong Depot (behind 876).

579 and 580 were delivered (it was mentioned elsewhere but not here) to Tuggeranong Depot in the past few days. I thought the rumour was Tuggers would only get 560 to 579 at this stage?

You mean like all those buses currently operating out of Woden Depot? (After all, that was where they were first delivered.)

Haven't the ones delivered to Tuggeranong or Belconnen generally stayed there for route service? (559 is one exception that comes to mind...)

Buses 572-581 have not showed on NEXTTHERE. You can still track them but when you press the info button, they don't show the bus type or fleet number. Is there any reason for this and are other people using TRANSIT TIMES having the same issue?

Like all 'good' things with ACTION, it broke.

585 was delivered recently and 586 yesterday (ACTION posted about the latter on facebook - #shiny... apparently). Both to T Depot
