  • submitted photographs must prominently feature:
    • bus infrastructure (such as bus stop, bus station, bus depot) within the ACT / Queanbeyan region (location must be specified)

Photos can be submitted four ways: (1) by posting to this forum topic (2) by posting on ACT Bus facebook page (and mentioning POTM) (3) by tweeting to @actbus (4) by contacting ACT Bus (submit a "contact us" form, send a message to our Facebook page or send me a Private Message) - and we'll send you an email address.

Unhosted photos may be uploaded into the ACT Bus Gallery which will apply a watermark. Requests to remove the watermark will not be considered.

*This month we are seeking photos of TV6526 operating 2016 Floriade Shuttles. If you submit a photo (or two) of this bus, you may post up to three photos but you may only submit a maximum of 2 photos in this "bonus" category.

To ensure consistency, photos must be displayed with a width of 640 (or height if 640 if a "portrait" aspect) - photos wider than 640 are required to use the option width=640 or height=640 in the image tag. For example: [img width=640] instead of [img].

Voting will commence on 29 October. Voting will close on 1 November.

I'm rather disappointed I missed out on getting any photos of the required bus, and I would've not submitted anything without it, but I do want to submit these for a chance.

"957 at Cohen Station"

"963 at Campbell Park Offices"

Bus 400

I hope nudity is permitted, half naked Bus 614 resting at Woden Bus Station.

Bus 606 at (freshly repainted) Kippax Bus Station

Another close result.

In keeping with my recent tradition, the bonus category for the next round has been inspired by this round: so for December we will be looking for photos with more than one bus.
