I am wondering whether anyone knows what fleet numbers the names "Zoe" and "Delta" are allocated to?
There's no information on the fleetwiki with those names as far as I can see. However, I'm pretty sure "Delta" was in the range of 441445 and "Zoe" was 502 or 504.

Hmm, can't seem to find the other post I made about it, oh well.
Saw 920 and 921 coming back from Woden again today. Still don't know what they're doing, like last time, but they're always together when travelling to and from Woden.

Can't really claim 'always' from two sightings, and 921 was alone when I saw it southbound on Yamba near the hospital on the morning of the 7th.
Without the driver training sign on the back or the desto, it would probably have to be doing network timings.

Alright, well 'both' times they were together or near each other.
As for destos, both times just said out of service - Ooh, I'm getting all sentimental just thinking about it cause they still have flipdot displays :'(

I saw quite a few with the noses yesterday too. There's one maybe two that don't have one atm, I think it was 467 or something.

Also @Busfinatic101, 621 was on the 65 south at 3:50pm again.

711 entered service this morning.

Yay!

I saw the photo of 652 at the city on the weekend, so that answers the other question. How about the others then, 653, 654 etc, are they out yet too?

Followed 662 today as it was being delivered to Tuggeranong Depot on a trade plate, got some photo's but nothing special, plus it looks the same as all the other ones anyway.

What is the name of the application for tracking buses; I wish to install something similar on my iPhone.

I noted this afternoon, whilst walking from my office to the City Bus Station, that one of the Volgren Optimus buses was running on route 11; it arrived in Civic at 5pm.

Next There and also Triptastic should both track vehicles.

Apart from the fact that one of Triptastic costs money to download, do you know what the differences are between the two apps?

On a side note, parts of the Canberra-region of Nextthere (realtime) aren't working. At the moment, the 200 and 300 aren't able to be tracked.

Been a while since these numbers were updated.

The current figures are: Average fleet age: 10.98 years; Belconnen 11.26, Tuggeranong 10.65 (Darts excluded)

Buses 25+ years = 66 (15%)

They both have slightly different applications. Next There is better for savings your common/nearby stops to get a list of what is coming. Triptastic works well as it can show the whole network in one go and will show all the buses running on the network (if you zoom out) you can save stops in this too but it doesn't work as well, it's probably a more gunzel friendly app where as next there is more of a convenient app for those who just use 2-4 regular bus stops and want to see the next departures quickly.
