Unfortunately due to living in Kambah with the lack of accessibility to Belconnen, this is not as lucrative as the Woden afternoon Renaults cause they stop before 9:30am :(

As for those who are still wondering about Renault's, I've done the hard work for you (with some help from KoB) to find out the current networks increased Renault activity. I'll certainly be following this with the remaining weekdays left before the revised network starts and screws all this up.
This is as good as it gets for now, so if you want to ride those endangered buses between now and the 23rd and after the 10th before buses like this replace it, the best times for Renault's are: 6am-10am around Belconnen, and if you're lucky to find the stragglers still around when you can't think of something to do to kill 4 hours, the next wave doesn't hit Woden till 2:30pm (and obviously City and Belconnen during peak).
May have only ridden 17 Renault's today, but with more strategic timings and drivers not running early, there's definitely potential for more.

The TC Alert says avoiding Hospital Rd in effect till 24th Dec. If this is the detour you refer to, then not taking the detour might be weird.

I won't bother with the blue indicating 'not yet ridden this year' buses, I've caught so many and ticked off so many, it would be too hard to find out which ones were which.

Now with all that bus hopping out of the way, I have 13 more buses left to catch over 3 allocated days before the end of the year to achieve my 1000 goal again. Half way through the year I thought I would exceed the 1000, so I got many lifts from people and look where that got me...

*Incase you're wondering what '∀rtics' is, It's my shortened way of writing 'Volgren Articulated Buses'.

That would've been nice, but no I only rode the two shuttles a short distance. If I had, the direction letter would've been 'L' for loop.

Also if you noticed, the R9 appears to be the best option if you want to ride every type of bus. Dunno if this will be the same over the next few weeks, but that's a lotta options for one route ;D

Another difference is the model of CCTV camera fitted, both internal and external. Not yet sure if it's a different system or just different camera models.
