HALF the Brisbane Transport bus fleet will not be in service today after a gas explosion at Virginia bus deport in the early hours of the morning.

 

A Brisbane City Council spokeswoman said all buses that run on gas would not be operating today because of the incident.

 

Workers at the bus depot were refilling the gas cylinders on a bus at 1.17am when the gas pod exploded, a department of Community Services spokeswoman said.

The depot staff are very lucky.

 

From what I read the bus involved was V815. A Scania L94UB.

People were apprantly waiting anywhere between 30-60 minutes for a 333 bus.
