Farewell State Transit – Tour Photos

On Sunday 13 March 2022, the Sydney Bus Museum and the Historical Commercial Vehicle Association held a farewell tour for State Transit. This comes ahead of the handover of the final State Transit contract to Transdev John Holland on 2 April 2022. The 7 buses used on the day toured all over the Eastern Suburbs, home to the final State Transit contract.

The tour utilised 6 current State Transit vehicles; Mercedes Benz O500LE CB60 EvoII 1811 (Port Botany), Volvo B12BLEA Volgren CR228L 2236 (Port Botany), Custom Denning Element 3122 (Waverley) Volvo B10BLE Orana 3921 (Waverley) and Volvo B12BLE CB60 EvoIIs 4833 and 4999 (both Randwick). In addition, Sydney Bus Museum 3383, a Mercedes O405 MkVI (ex Randwick) also joined the service buses.

There were a number of photostops throughout the day. Here are a collection of photos taken on the day.
