Visiting the Busy Blue Bus depot at Esperance in November 2018 few buses were painted blue and none boasted the unusual fleetname! Ironically this MCA, CVL1801, had been painted all over blue when with Adams in Perth. It was new in 1995 to Tasmanian's Own Redline who sold it on to Adams. The coach was bought by Redlion of Esperance and, like many of that fleet ended up with Busy Blue Bus when they purchased the Redlion company. Busy Blue has the franchise for the local bus service, TransEsperance so that is a fleet of silver and green, then they also operate a large number of school contracts in the state's orange, green and white colours, so the blue and white is in the minority.

Also seen at the Esperance depot alongside the MCA, but in dealer white, was this 1989 Denning Majestic bodied Mercedes O303, CVL1802. New to APT they sold it on to Canberra Coaches and it moved within the ACT to Capital Coaches. From there it went to Adelaide with Grants Coaches before it ended up in Esperance.
