I believe it's part of the rebranding.

AFAIK 145M-148M were the first cars to receive it, or at least the first ones I saw with the PT> logo on the front and sides.

Could reduce the need for a massive and expensive paint job on change of operator, as happened with the change from Connex to Metro.  Hopefully if/when a new operator takes over from Metro, the PT> livery will largely remain.

I believe that the govt still owns the rolling stock, and Metro are only responsable to run and maintain it.

They've done that with Adelaide Metro buses for many years. Depots run by private contractors (Serco or whoever) on a sticker next to the entrance but the overall livery was the same Adelaide Metro yellow front decal for every bus.  I've noticed my local buses - which were once 'Melbourne Bus Link' have been becoming 'PTV delivered by Transdev' so we're obviously headed that way ourselves now.

It makes sense if you are changing operators every few years (as they seem to like doing).

This is done in Perth and numerous locations elsewhere.  Its about communicating that this is an integrated public transport system.  The operator in a branding sense secondary.

Massive and expensive paint job. That's already going to happen with Transdev with their former Ventura and National vehicles. Likewise, Ventura also has the fleet of Grenda's and Invicta buses among others, so they no longer have a fleet of blue buses either (although Ventura have since moved to a basic all-white design with a "V" on the sides).
