Welcome back but usually when someone quits the forum their posts remain but as all your original posts are gone, a fair few posts no longer make sense with no continuity due to missing BD12 posts!

Thanks. It was a conscious decision I made at the time to extricate myself from anywhere on the net that had anything to do with gunzelling for work related reasons. There is nowhere in the forum software which allows you to leave and take everything with you, so I asked the admins to do that for me. I continued to lurk for quite some time.

That reason for doing so no longer exists, but my contributions will be minimal - mostly this thread as it's been a long term project of mine (over 12 years now), which I am more than happy to share :)

Don't worry - I'll poke my face in and post from time to time if there's something to comment on. I've noticed the WA/Perth discussion area has greatly reduced in volume in recent times as it seems a lot of people have migrated over to various Facebook groups.

The other thing those of us in the industry have to be aware of, is that some (if not all) companies have social media policies in place and restricts a lot of what can and cannot be said. I'm quite happy to relay the odd war story and recollections of times gone past, but have to draw the line at info of an operational nature. Another thing those of you who may be reading this post needs to be aware of, is that the counter terrorism alert is currently set to High which means we need to be careful what information is disseminated in the public domain. Bearing in mind this forum can be browsed anonymously, it would be wise to think about whether that potential post is of use and not be driven by the desire to say you heard it here first.

Time to pull my head in :)

No worries Phil, I don't work in the industry and don't care for much of the technical stuff or operational things but love the white n greens and share your interest in timetables but that's about it

All the changes of 31 January 2016 have been included. It involved updating the entire database (i.e. lots of work!). It's structure has been altered for simplicity.

Hope you find it useful.

Dropbox has now made it difficult to share stuff for free account holders, so I've moved it over to Google Drive. Try this:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxFRyV ... sp=sharing

Can you reply in here so we all know whether it works or not?

Thanks

Works, though only a bit actually shows up on my iPhone (most of it got clipped off due to the screen width of my iPhone)

Could someone try this link and let me know if it works? I am trying to get around this recent restriction on dropbox.

TIA

Last update of 2017 included. 2018 changes will be incorporated by late Jan/early Feb as spare time permits :)

Also, if anyone who regularly uses these files notices any change to the way dropbox behaves, please drop a note in this thread rather than a pm to let me know. That way others who do download it will also be alerted to any issues.

Hey I've just got onto this site, and I noticed in the timetable project, the 201 route is outdated. It reads Carousel-Bentley Hospital-Carousel. The route was updated last year to run Cannington Station - Curtin University via Bentley Hospital and Bentley Plaza, with select deviations to Activ Industries. It runs like 5 or 6 times a day now as well. https://www.transperth.wa.gov.au/timeta ... ownload-tt

Thanks for that - I've corrected that minor detail and all other details are correct. In the Routes tab, hover your mouse over that cell and it will display the route description as a comment (you'll need to view it in MS Excel)

(Some background) This has been an ongoing project of mine started about 18 years ago. It was originally created to track and keep up to date with my growing collection of timetables which were starting to be offered in .pdf format in the early 2000's. I've also used it as object for my learning excel of which the original version was created in Excel 95, which has become much more that a simple database. The current version is created in Excel 2016 and is backwards compatible with earlier versions of excel. I decided some time ago to share it to use as a research tool much in the same way http://perthbus.info/ is used to look up bus history/movements.

Enjoy and please put up any more errors or omissions you find.

I've not advertised any changes for a little while and is now up to date as at 2/9/18.

The link in my sig for
Route/contract info was still pointing to the 2017 file which I have changed to 2018.
