978 was operating a Belconnen shift this morning (Route 60 ex-Tuggeranong at 0825ish). Not sure if it was just covering though as it was a different driver...

363 was also operating a belco iris shift today (#31 due at Cohen 5:09 pm.) doubt a gas bus would change depot though.

And you mentioned 978 on a B shift, saw it on a 163 today in the city 5:32pm. Not sure if this shift it belco though.

That 163 is a T shift.

Was doing a Tuggers run this morning when I saw 978!



Conclusion: Covering break-downs or something like that

Fleet wiki suggests 128 has switched depot - now back to T. Wonder if it will continue as a training bus.

128 may have been removed from service. But unsure at this time.

Please continue to report sightings.

I understand 128 has now been confirmed as withdrawn from service, as has 886.

I witnessed burnt out bus 300 being towed into the rear of Woden Depot this morning. I had wondered what happened to it, now I know... what a mess  :'(
I'm guessing it was kept at Belconnen Depot till now as they removed its parts, since the accident.

Been a while since Irisbus movements to/from Melbourne have been reported.

There was a sighting of 312 heading towards Melbourne on the back of a low loader yesterday. The truck had earlier delivered 307 back to Belconnen Depot.

Has also been a while since any significant bus transfers have occurred: 598 & 599 have been transferred from Tuggeranong to Belconnen this week.

I assume they were initially sent to Tuggeranong to enable the Darts to be re-allocated for the City Loop. Now that 604, 605 & 606 are in service, they were able to be sent over to Belconnen. (There could be a third transfer, but it will depend on where the next withdrawal will occur.)

Also: Buses 897 and 986 have departed Canberra for their new owners this week.

938 (743)  Is 938 back in service, or was this a 'one off'?


This confirms our information that 938 has been moved to Belconnen Depot, effective yesterday.

936 is back in service at Belconnen.

Any speculation on why so many withdrawn Renaults have been returned to service? Seen out and about?

Note that 910 & 911 were brought back into service to replace 900 & 901. (Don't ask)

The others came back this week and last week.

I have definitely seen 935 & 940 in service.

Barry Drive

As is now noted in ACT Bus Fleetwiki, all of the PR100.2s which re-entered service in February have been sent back to the retirement home at Tuggeranong.

With one exception: 935 has been kept in service and 954 has been withdrawn in its stead.

There is a good chance many of these buses will again be reinstated for the start of Network 19 (though probably not 954).
