Does anyone know when the new Scanias are arriving?

I want to know where they get all this money from to buy more new stuff. Wonder what will be replaced now?

It may not be for replacements as they'll need more vehicles for the 601 and 608, I think I read somewhere that they'll have 10 vehicles on these services by April. Can some kind soul inform me as to what Scanias have been ordered as I seem to have missed this news.

I've heard speculation before that a lot of the newer buses in the fleet are leased, including the Streetlites. I'd be surprised if they had bought those considering the teething problems new buses so often have.

I'd definitely say these are for the 601/608. I haven't heard anything about new Scanias being ordered or acquired.

I gather its 5 new Omnilinks which are due within the next couple of months, the R-EMB Scanias are being advertised for sale.

the two AU07 Solos WERE advertised for sale a few weeks back aswell.

The Streetlites are rented from Mistral, if they dont get on with them they can chuck em back and loose less money so makes sense.
