I wish the double deckers had more comfortable seats. Anyone agree with me? Not tall enough, minimal legroom, but the USB is very helpful - and they actually work too!

It ain't no D40LF sofa, but imo its comfier than nearly all of our fleet (including nosubs), so I'm glad for that.

Think he may have meant the seats themselves.

I guess he might've. But we should remember that not many buses have taller seats.

On the other hand, I loved the Orion V seats.

Any chance that the manufacturer has some sort of maintaince contact on the Island with the fleet in Victoria - might be doing commissioning work?

1) I believe they stopped operation of top-deck with lights out

2) The stop request dings have also been fixed

Also 19404 hasnt been out for a while and I wanna guess that its onboard GPS needs to be fixed. Wasnt reporting properly since it entered service.

Where was it spotted? Pictures?

NB Hwy 99.  Sorry, no pics.  Using electronic devices while driving is a no-no 🤣

What's the PDI track?

Post Delivery Inspection track, I believe. Buses that are delivered but still being tested and prepared for service.
