Saw a NSW bus doing a 17 the other day, confused on why ACTON has it, let alone running it?

Ugh. I don't understand why they just can't have one livery on at a time.

It would be a condition of the lease to retain the livery. Except at the front, of course.

Yeah, it just still seems odd why they have that bus at all.

But hey, a little bit of Sydney in Canberra doesn't hurt!

Well, I still wonder why the other 490 was all white, what was the reason for that?

Has to do with the pigment that is added to the paint at the time of application.

The leased 490 is quoted as having 45 passenger seats but what was the standing capacity? I can't find any reference to standing capacities in the fleet wiki. Does anyone now know (or whjere to look) please?
