Re: [May/June 2019] SA Transport observations

A Southlink bus has caught fire at the Bus layover area on Railway Terrace Mile End opposite the Homemaker Centre. Does anyone know the bus number? That's another Scania that's caught fire it's a wonder why the government allows Scania to make buses for Australian roads as these are a danger to the...

Re: Buses out of service for long periods

Scania K230UB 1274 hasn't shown up for about a fortnight now in real time. It wasn't that healthy when I caught it last, but also less vanilla than most Scanias. Is it off the road for repairs? It seems to have either something wrong with it's differential, or possibly even fuel intake issues. It's...

Re: Current Bus Contracts/Renewals

It'll be interesting to find out why SL got shafted. I reckon they've done pretty well over the years and executed the Noarlunga Line shutdowns and Footy Express services quite well. What can Busways do that SL can't? Money talks thats all it could be obviously Busways are doing it for a rock botto...

TT doesn't have such a limit in place, and I never noticed an issue with MANs doing 100kph in service.

Re: Buses out of service for long periods

And still no sign of Lonsdale based 2712 been out of service since October 2018 one must assume this has been retired and used for parts. Surley it doesn't take this long to repair it if there is any Lonsdale operators that can confirm this

Torrens Transit currently have 8 Scania O-Bahn Artics out of service,some for several months. They are 1101,1141,1151,1152,1153,807,808,1850- I'd say they are scraping the bottom of the barrel at St Agnes to cover peak hour trips? I seen 1151 sitting at Scania the other day along with 1166 which is...
