Seen returning to the depot in April 2010 is Ryans Mercedes O405 with Volgren body, 31 (2231AO), which dates from 1995.
Ryans buses are usually seen in and around their base at Tullamarine, but 32 (2232AO) had strayed down to Port Melbourne and was caught enjoying the sunshine by the beach in December 2011. The bus is the last of nine similar vehicles bought new between 1991 and 1997.
Delivered in 1993, 29 (2229AO), is seen heading back to the depot after afternoon school rush hour work in April 2010. The flags on the roundabout are advertising the Brimbank Festival, Brimbank being the name of the local council area.
Seen in Flinders Street by the Melbourne Aquarium in November 2015 is sister vehicle 30 (2230AO), delivered in 1995, doubtless on a school charter.

Mercedes 32 was one of several vehicles in the fleet, joining others from across the state in May 2018, protesting in convoy outside the Parliament Buildings in Victoria against plans by the Labor Party to sequestrate buses throughout the state to be run by bureaucrats rather than entrepreneurs.
