Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - Mar/Apr 2017

I've seen heaps of unusual fleet sightings of late, today saw 2535 at Warwick with I originally thought was at Ellenbrook but now appears to be at Beenyup/Karrinyup, over the last week also I've sighted 1556 an 1557 both running Claremont services 24/25/27/28/103 so they must have transferred to. 1...

Re: Recent Pics (Up to 27/12/16)

A nice selection of shots there, Off The Rails. Very different to see a fleet of mostly Volgren, as opposed to mostly Customs here in Adelaide. Are there still CR225L and CR226L buses in Perth? The only photos I seem to see of Perth's buses these days are the CR228L and Optimus buses, and the few o...

Re: WA Transport General Discussion & Questions - 2016

Interesting to see today on perthbus.info that 0405NH CNG's 1772 - 1776 have been withdrawn and stored, anyone know why these Buses which were built in 2001 have been withdrawn over older O405NH's that were built in 1999 ? The gas tanks have expired in them, and they are not getting renewed, hence ...

Re: Trial of autonomous vehicle (fully electric shuttle bus)

How does it work? Might be a stupid question but does it operate in traffic? Yes it does operate in traffic. In summary, the self driving bus is driven by a computer inside it like a robot, it does have a GPS system, which allows it to follow along its route, and it has sensors to avoid obstacles, ...

Re: Things to see in Perth's transport for an interstate vis

Most of trains have metro style perimeter seating. Not good for sight-seeing tourists. Some of the latest cars do have transverse seats, maybe fixed though? The standard seats are fixed, A SETs 01-48 are all perimeter seats, B SETs 49-60 are perimeter seats in the middle carriage, SET 61-94 are all...

In NSW & Qld they only offer concessions on their smartcard tickets. In Vic they only offer smartcard tickets. Qld still offers concession paper tickets, but they have prepaid services in Brisbane, which speeds up boarding time, and there are more people in Queensland that look after and don't lose...
