Eastrans participated with Grenda in the provision of the first of Melbourne's Smartbus routes, which are long distance outer orbital services provided with real time displays at key stops, enhanced shelters and bus priorities. This Eastrans Mercedes O500LE, 121 (6160AO), is seen in Oakleigh on the 900 in April 2010. Having bought Volvo B12BLEs, then Scania L94UBs, the Mercedes O500LE found favour in 2006. There was a gap before Eastrans bought new buses in 2009 - Scania K230UBs. Consistent throughout is the purchase of Volgren bodies.

Side by side in Oakleigh depot in February 2012 are Mercedes O500LE 117 & 116 (6103/4AO). With the Smartbus entire franchise passing to Transdev in August the following year it is believed that Eastrans has retained the vehicles, whereas other operators Smartbus vehicles passed to Transdev.
