Re: 2015 Bus Enthusiasts 'Greater Perth' Tour:

Thanks! Of course there were the inevitable hiccups along the way, but myself and I'm sure everyone else had a great time, was good to see new people and catch up with a few others again.

Re: Proposed 930 T1-Perth City discussion thread

Perhaps they build their frequencies around the time slots of the aircraft arriving/departing Perth Airport and then have a few extra buses on to cater for others such as Airport Spotters (me included), general public, workers etc... If they do take this into consideration, they should also remember...

Re: PTA/Transperth Bus Observations - May 2014

Maybe an old obs, but yesterday afternoon I saw RCCTS4 in green and silver operating a Kwinana local. Certainly not, it's confirmed then. I only heard this earlier in the week and had been waiting for TC to confirm it. It'll certainly stand out from the other green and silvers. I too have heard abo...

Re: PTA/Transperth Bus Observations - April 2014

I saw a CanningVale reno out late last night around about 11pm heading back to the depot. Surely they wouldn't leave the reno's out that late? especially at that time of night when there are plenty of other low floors in the depot...

Not sure if it has been mentioned, but 1313 and 5563 (ex 1065) are both sitting in the graveyard at Canning Vale, looks like 5563 is being used for parts.

Re: 950 'SuperBus' - Morley - Beaufort St - Perth - UWA - QE

Did the 950 in 1511 on Tuesday, wasn't bad. Didn't pick up too many people as there were 3 950's in a row! We were the third bus. Going to be plenty of Double and maybe triple? banking with this new route during peak as they run ever "1-4 minutes"

1297 was sighted in Mandurah by Mandurahbus the other day, maybe that has something to do with it?

Re: **FAREWELL TO THE WELLINGTON STREET BUS STATION 11/01/20

Sports like cricket should always play second fiddle to historic transport moments. You can play/watch/do whatever cricket people do any time, but transport events such as the Wellington Street Bus Station farewell only happen once. You can't "play anytime" when it is a set fixture. It's hard enoug...

Re: PTA / Transperth bus observations - January 2014

Interesting that it's a Karrinyup bus, unless it was a promotional shoot. I was told some of those 157x's at Karrinyup were being transferred to Shenton Park to operate Swan's 950 services. Think it was 1572, 73, 74 and 75 but I think 1574 and 75 are at Southern River so I might be incorrect. 2437 ...
