Re: CBD & South East Light Rail

Well they did build a massive new Bus Interchange at Moore Park, but its not exactly convenient to the Light Rail, and has hardly been used given the LR opened about a month after the interchange was complete

Can't quite understand that post Campbeltown busboy.
Do you mean it works sometimes for you??

Eitherway looks like something is still wrong with the configuration.

Re: New bus stop shelters for Sydney?

So looks like the new contractor is more video screen focused.

I just hope they are smart enough to integrate real time bus info with the screens. In my mind it's a win-win as more people will actually look at the ads

Re: STA Observations 2020

What livery is the demonstrator wearing?
Did they have to install special charging equipment at the depot, or is it just running off say a 3 phase outlet?

Re: Opal Discussion and Observations

$2 discount remains unchanged. I think the question was if you transfer to a 0-3km bus/light rail which will be $1.60 temporarily, do you get 40c back? (Or even 3-8km) Agree the change in peak times is extremely poor and will likely cause more crowding in the real peak as people are unable to adjust...

Re: Opal Discussion and Observations

Yes.
Sat and Sun cap instead of Sun only cap.

In the short term with half price fares (other than on ferries) many won't hit the cap though

Re: Opal Discussion and Observations

Theoretically yes.. but I expect it will mean a free transfer temporarily - indeed up to 8km on a bus
(I'd be surprised if the logic allows a negative fare)

Re: Opal Discussion and Observations

Ouch on the 0-3km bus/light rail increase, though offset by the off-peak pricing for some. The increase in the definition of peak hours will also increase fares for those travelling in the shoulder (and possibly shift more demand back into the former peak) Assume Sunday ferry demand is likely to plu...

7News stating that July fare increases will be announced tomorrow.
Flagging larger discount for off-peak fares.

Re: Inner West Light Rail observations

So with the New Fish Markets building being green lit, what will this mean for the IWLR. Presumably some name changes may be required The current Fish Markets stop will no longer be the closest to the New Fish Markets, but Wentworth Park won't be much closer and the accessibility is relatively poor ...

So they can construct it without having to shut the line for a long period. You can build much of the new platforms while T3 is still operating.

Re: Sydney Metro - Tallawong to Bankstown

Should also be added that there is a safeguarded underground box to the South of the existing trains line shown on the new plan. The most likely use of this would be for an extension of the Metro line to Liverpool. But you could also see it being used for say a Hurstville to Chatswood Circle via Ban...

Re: Light rail gets the green light: stage 1 UNSW to CBD

Agreed if you make it difficult for people to transfer, the only thing you will prove is that even more people don't like transfers.

Re: Light rail gets the green light: stage 1 UNSW to CBD

So does that mean more 20kph zones for the tram.

Remembering it was a late switch to turn the current pedestrian zone from 40 to 20.

So yet another trial.
What didn't they learn from the current Inner West trial?
What happened to the $10m election promise for electric buses at Randwick?

Meanwhile just buy more diesel.

Small piece on 7News tonight.

Appears 5% rise likely to be rejected
Some consideration of increased off-peak discount to increase distancing.

Usual negative comments by the opposition.
