By February 2015 the Davis name, which dated back 85 years had all but been eradicated from the buses of Ballarat, the town the company served all those years. ComfortDelGro Cabcharge, CDC for short, acquired the company in 2009 and with the state's Public Transport Victoria (PTV) calling the shots, CDC decided to rebrand all its Victoria fleets and adopt the state's orange based livery. Volvo B10BLE 145 (4938AO) of 2002 is seen in an advert livery, so probably would have looked much the same in Davis' days.

Sister vehicle 144 (4854AO) has had the rougher treatment of having its Davis' names ripped off and replaced by CDC Ballarat stickers.
