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I understand 128 has now been confirmed as withdrawn from service, as has 886.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