Re: PERTH TRAMS TO RETURN

Its a pity it’s not already along way past the planning stage. I don’t understand how 2 billion dollars can be spent in Canberra to service a population of 400,000 people with only a small percentage of that who it actually really services?? I’m sure I’ll be long dead and buried before any tram serv...

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2018

Does anyone know where the Renault arctics have gone for sale/storage? Manheim? 1808 is still at Mandurah. One or two interesting/elderly buses on the way back from the airport yesterday. 1705 on a 37, 1555 on a 103, 1528 on a 930 and 2584 on a 27 amongst others. 1705 has been and still is in stora...

Re: High floors in service

To save yourself some time, these are the best areas (guaranteed) to find the types you are after: Mercedes-Benz O405NH - Claremont area (routes 24, 25, 102, 103, 107 etc) and Route 950, plus many others scattered around the rest of Perth Mercedes-Benz O405NH CNG - On weekdays, try the Fremantle an...

Re: Limited stops bus routes in Perth

I can see the point about the simplification but that doesn't mean that all stops is a part of the success of the 950. It is from a legibility perspective and being able to provide a higher frequency to a larger catchment. What was previously five routes running different lengths of Beaufort St is ...

Re: Limited stops bus routes in Perth

Trains can't go everywhere. There is room for limited stops services in almost every city. The 950 would be a case in point. The 950 is a success BECAUSE it's an all-stop service. The 66 in peak hour would still benefit from being an Express service instead of limited stops. The few Limited Stops s...

Re: Next generation railcars for Transperth

I saw a program a few weeks ago about some new trains in Japan that had extra doors that were only used in the peak times. In between peak extra seats slid down from up neat the roof and blocked the doors. In peak the seat slid up and provided extra doors and standing space. Pretty cool

Re: Transperth Service Changes - 2017

Timetables are out for the 23 April changes. Here's a quick analysis of the removal and addition of trips to selected routes. Route 19 - Weeknight services have been cut with the last bus departing Yokine at 7pm (previously 11pm) and Perth Busport at 9:30pm (previously 11:30pm). No doubt this is du...

Re: WA Transport General Discussion & Questions - 2017

Unless the shifts are rostered to only do 950's it would be nearly impossible to have all 950's run with artics. At the moment some shifts do only one 950 per shift some do 4 or more. Still be a good idea if there were 20 artics (10 for PATH and 10 for Swan) and put them on shifts with mostly 950's ...

Re: Route 950: Morley - Beaufort St - Perth - UWA - QEII

I agree the 67/68's are under-utilised along Beaufort St outbound because people do tend to pile on the 950.

Re: Route 950: Morley - Beaufort St - Perth - UWA - QEII

Interesting ideas Mr OC. I think the 67 should still travel to the city. Many many pax hop on at many points down Beaufort St and head to Mirrabooka or Dianella. The 68 being a not-so-frequent service could travel to Maylands maybe?

Re: Route 950: Morley - Beaufort St - Perth - UWA - QEII

The later evening 950's probably don't have enough time from mid-week towards the weekend. It's still busy and if there's something on in the city it's all turns to XXX very quickly, or if there's an accident or roadworks...it's goes on and on. I've been thinking lately with so many 950's in the pea...

Yes..... and they get refurbished, repainted and re-registered at the same time. Hence 101 and 101 are at Malaga (ex 17 and 18 respectively). :roll:
There is no 101 at Malaga. 1910 and 100 only.

I've noticed after viewing numerous pictures in the Perth photo section, that your buses have '000' when displaying 'Not In Service'. Here in Adelaide our buses simply just have 'Not In Service', is there reasoning behind the '000'? Was it just the department deciding to have the desto's designed l...

881 is a Regional Bus Service and it runs every 30 mins during Saturdays and Sundays and Public Holidays. This doesn't work at all. The 940 bus route doesn't meet the 900-route frequency and runs every 15 mins during the day and the peak-hour during weekdays. Look at 910, 920, 930, 950, 990 - all r...
