More on Baxters Buses going to transit First.
Already there is Leyland Tiger m/o 5877 and there are three more to come. (Obviously my original advice was not totally correct)
Also there are MAN’s m/o 8850, m/o 1089 and m/o 8836 and Renaults m/o 4466, 8674 and 8675.
Others will come later in January when required for school services.
Ex STA Mercedes m/o 8746 has been repainted from STA colours – it was intended to be white with name sign similar to other ex STAercedes but came back with nore transit First blue and green similar to the ex Jones STA Mercedes.
m/o 7228 ex STA Mercedes ex West Bankstown is currently being repainted (LS – I have treated as having been repainted).
The other three Tigers to go to Transit First are probably m/o 7647, m/o 8813 and m/o 8425.
Because of the more complex description of the Leyland Tiger situation I have removed the information from individual buse (except m/o 5877) and have added a paragraph at the beginning of the table describing the known situation.
The only bus confirmed at Connex yesterday was m/o 8960 ex STA Mercedes – but did not yet carry fleet number.
An astersik behind the new operator name indicates bus has been sighted/confirmed at that operator.
