Bus 649 is a Scania Orana working in Hobart. It has carried three different advertising campaigns and the latest is perhaps the most unique. Is there another bus in the world that displays a cartoon?
|In 1995 bus 649 was painted into this short-lived scheme which advertised a local computer company.|
|In 1996 bus 649 was again repainted, this time to advertise Bartercard around Hobart. Here 649 sits at the Kingston terminus.|
|In 1997 Launceston, in the north of the state, decided to launch a campaign to advertise the tourist attractions in the area. Part of that campaign was bus 649 - the scheme seen here includes a cartoon featuring a well-known Australian character - 'Snake' - who is trying to travel north.|
