Re: Current Bus Contracts/Renewals

Is Keolis Downer still branding their hills contract operation as SouthLink or is it being operated/branded as Keolis Downer?

Re: Adelaide Bus Network Simplification Ideas

One I've thought of this morning. Now that Torrens run both 228 and J1 if 228 was to deviate via the Lyell McEwin and times adjusted they'll have a Go Zone beteeen Elizabeth East and Salisbury Heights The J1 doesn’t service all stops so that would have to change for it to be a Go Zone. Also J1 serv...

Re: Consultation on new AdMet Network

Another slight tweak that may not cause much fuss could be removing the 565 unless there is massive demand between Stop 37C and Ingle Farm Shops which still has 500-501-502, 560 and 229 services. 566 services cover the Mawson to Ingle Farm stretch and use the extra kms to extend the 415 to Golden G...

Re: Current Bus Contracts/Renewals

There is a possibility of the current Pooraka Depot closing when Torrens Transit takes over the Outer North contract area in July. That could make a at least 3 TT depots closed or closing? Obviously TT now prefer less but larger depots(keeps their costs down). Pooraka depot become LINK SA DEPOT Any...

Re: Knoll faces Liberal Party revolt on bus cuts

The 313 does go into West Lakes Shops and then continues onto the airport (partly replacing the 288 and J8 services). The only reason 314 at West Lakes Mall is displayed on the map is to show that it terminates there, just like 313 shows up at the airport as its terminus. And 313 and 314 are shown ...

Re: 752 bus route

No real surprise - did a small survey of the 3:30, 4:30, 5:30 services and all were next to empty (2 pax max). A much simpler system for the Southern Vales is planned, reducing 10+ variations to just 4. One option that might work though is extending the 737 to McLaren Vale via Clarendon and McLaren...

Should I Run is great. It also gives you fleet numbers.
Should I Run is also good as one of the app pages shows on a map all the buses/trains/trams in service across Adelaide at one time

This round of reforms is only bus and tram - the privatisation of the trains will occur sometime in 2021 - I think the final 3 tenderers are being shortlisted now - maybe aligning with the start of electric trains on the Gawler l...

In theory it's a great idea, but in practice, it's going to go to XXX.
Agree - all looks good but with the withdrawal of so many routes, there will be alot of unhappy people who don't want to walk further!

AdMet website

The AdelaideMetro website has had an upgrade overnight. Content appears similar, just a new layout.

It does mention now that MetroMate will be withdrawn in July and they list 3 replacement apps.

Interesting to see some Facebook coverage and lobbying on the changes occurring already. This video shows some signage about the changes but don't think it's official signage.

Also the 650 bus went from this terminus at Glen Osmond to Glenelg via Cross Rd, Marion Rd, Bray St and the current 190 route. The 650 and 652 (Mitcham to Glenelg) routes were replaced by the 190 route not long after Torrens Transit took over the North-South Contract from Serco.
