Given that C'tarf seems to prefer using AVs on 130 and their 'X's then some
transfers will have to head in their direction.

Whilst C'tarf rotate their units every day the 130 and 'X's seem to be preferred AV routes.

Not exactly. I assume this is due to the route being part of the 27 bill, but the 27x is usually allocated SGs or GTs (from any batch) - which is also the typical 27 allocation (the 7.35 is 110-27, the 8.05 is 112-27). The two extra buses in the morning usually aren't so because (and I'm guessing here) one of them is a staff bus and the other is a heck-if-I-know that does the 43 in the afternoon - all of 'em Universals though. Perhaps a similar analogy could be drawn with the 66s and 67s which also have a number of their respective Xpresso departures worked by their own buses and not Unis/Euros - I wouldn't know since I don't keep an eye on them.

So once CTF run out of AVs then the EVs will be the core of the route...? Spare me. (That's unless they cascade AXs down there somehow...)
