Quote from: Busfanatic101 on February 27, 2015, 07:58:53 pm339 now has a yellow bike rack, and a pr2 (953?) has a black one, a first for the 'orange' buses
Quote from: King of Buses on February 27, 2015, 08:57:11 pm339 has always had a yellow one...
Quote from: Skitube on February 28, 2015, 05:01:24 pm330 and 337 had black bike rack, so presumably 337 had its bike rack replaced? does 330 still have its black one?
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on February 28, 2015, 05:52:12 pmThis topic has been split to discuss bike rack allocation. As the Photo Gallery will show, both 330 & 337 have had a DL2 rack and 330 has also had a VeloPorter 2 (and possibly still does).
Quote from: Bus 503 on October 19, 2015, 04:37:43 pm330 has been going around lately with a DL2 rack. Think this change was only completed recently.
Quote from: Bus 503 on October 20, 2015, 08:12:43 pm430 now carries a VELOPORTER rack.
Quote from: King of Buses on October 20, 2015, 09:01:25 pmMight mean all bike rack replacements henceforth are to be Sportworks Veloporter racks...unfortunately.
Quote from: King of Buses on November 04, 2015, 09:35:20 pmBus 503, you now have a Veloporter Bike rack.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on November 11, 2015, 09:50:43 pmI think I saw 579 with one of those black/grey bike racks the other day, and yet, I thought ACTION were putting their new stock of yellow ones on them

Quote from: King of Buses on April 11, 2016, 12:40:24 pm464 HAS A BIKE RACK!!! (Veloporter)Seems to be doing some testing around Civic with the rack lowered but no bike on :/
Quote from: Busfanatic101 on April 11, 2016, 05:05:19 pmACTION has put up photos of 464 with it's rack on facebook. Also mentions trials staring/having started on artics and 'some' plural formhttps://www.facebook.com/ACTIONBusesACT/posts/566314153546604
Quote from: Bus 400 on April 14, 2016, 09:10:24 pmBus 515 has also been ruined with a bike rack.

Quote from: King of Buses on April 14, 2016, 11:10:13 pm464 has had its bike rack removed though (probably transferred it from 464 to 515).
Quote from: Bus 400 on April 14, 2016, 11:17:34 pmThat's the new cost saving measure, drivers pick up their bag, whatever else they may require, a spanner & a bike rack....
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on April 15, 2016, 02:21:16 amWhat is it with the new stock of those grey racks anyway? the Vetoporter or whatever you call them ones. You guys ever tried using both? - theres quite the difference between them, and the grey ones are really not all that nice, esp to operate.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on April 15, 2016, 02:21:16 amI did notice a new supply of the yellow racks with the black stickers, what's happened with using those?
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on April 15, 2016, 02:21:16 amoh, by the way, would I be correct to presume that during the 'trial' any of the steertag/artics with racks are placed on a service will forbid people from using the racks like they did back in 2005?
Quote from: Bus 503 on April 15, 2016, 09:00:41 amMaybe you should go tell Sportworks that - I'm sure they value feedback.
Quote from: Bus 503 on April 15, 2016, 09:00:41 am"Yellow with a black sticker..." What type of bike rack is that? A DL2 perhaps?
Quote from: Bus 503 on April 15, 2016, 09:00:41 amI doubt it - do note that ACTION are still in the early process of testing the longer buses with bike racks so we won't know much more until a little way further down the track.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on April 15, 2016, 09:56:57 amWell I'm a bus enthusiast who pays no attention to specifics, so yeah, whatever the 'yellow coloured metal' racks are called. When I refered to the black sticker, it appears to be a new set. I think one of the E5 500s has one - this is pretty badly done, I know, but this is basically what I meant taking from your picture. Keep an eye out for one. http://i.imgur.com/xELpsmI.png
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on April 15, 2016, 09:56:57 amDo you have a link? I'm would love to tell them that.
Quote from: #Domelight Drew on October 20, 2016, 09:12:48 pmHasnt 393 always had a veloporter (like for a few years atleast) or did it go back to DL2 for a bit?Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
Quote from: Busfanatic101 on July 18, 2017, 06:34:36 pm117 now has a black rack replacing its DL2
Quote from: Busfanatic101 on September 15, 2017, 07:43:12 pmAs does 941 by yesterday.A few of the rack changes mentioned on this thread still need to be reflected on fleetwiki
