Melbourne public transport as crew cab utes

You’ve seen Melbourne public transport as Arnott’s Shapes, but how about as crew cab utes?

You have Metro Trains Melbourne in blue.

Yarra Trams in green.

V/Line in purple.

And buses in orange.

I cheated on the last one because it’s a van, and it’s operated by outdoor advertising company oOh!Media, who have the contract to maintain the network of around 5,000 bus shelters across Melbourne.

And a few more

Melbourne bus operators also have their own vans so mechanics can attend to broken down buses in the field.

Some of the ones I’ve spotted over the years include Transdev.

And Sita.


Bus operators in Sydney and Adelaide also have own dedicated tow trucks for recovering broken down buses.

    Ryan’s have their own cute little utes as well. They’re not really branded, just coloured.

    Did you delberately frame the last photo so it had “baby” followed by “sita”?
