Dear Phillip – thanks for your enquiry. Sincere apologies for the delayed


The National Transport Commission is a policy and legislative reform
agency, hence your enquiry is not within our scope. I am not familiar with
who exactly would be able to respond to your enquiry from a governmental
perspective, keeping in mind that it’s possible that these vehicles are
owned and managed by the private sector under contract to the respective
sate and territory governments. With this in mind you may want to contact
any of the following (as possible leads):
