Re: Philippines "new normal"

Update to the above. The Department of Transport is suspending the implementation of beep cards on the EDSA Busway due to the purchasing fee of the card (PHP80 = $AUD2.30) not being waived. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201004/00e862fc41efcb4c8bedaf77a27cef12.jpg Sent from my SM-A207F using Tap...

Re: Philippines "new normal"

As of 28 September 2020, the Manila EDSA busway system will go cashless, with passengers only allowed to use the beep card to tap in and tap out. On 1 October 2020, i believe it will be extended to UV express vans and jeepneys. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200928/c9c140d9bcbb998c77157514deea3d...

Re: Australian Aviation Thread - 2020

Nauru Airlines B733 has departed Manila, Philippines this morning at 8:50am after arriving from Brisbane via Darwin.

Does anyone know if this is freight, Passenger or repatriation related as I haven't heard of any added flights for the latter.

4 Cathay Dragon A320's flying into Darwin this morning from Hong Kong. Guessing Darwin is a refuelling stop before continuing onwards.

Sk Metro Manila is now back under Enhanced Community Quarantine and the IATF has set the guidelines for this classification from August 4 to August 18 which includes resuspending all forms of public transport in Metro Manila.

Re: Covid-19

Remember that only surgical masks worn with the coloured part on the outside can stop virus droplets, a washable cloth mask is only good for dirt particles.

Re: International Aviation Thread

Noticed on FR24 that Cebu Pacific has a couple of Airbus A330's and two A321's arriving in Alice Springs from Manila and Angeles City.

Would these be getting stored there or is there something else happening as there is also a Myanmar Airways International Airbus A319 from Alice Springs to Denpasar.

Every bus in Sydney will have these as capacity is now limited on buses due to social distancing rules.

Re: Covid-19

Are companies still having full bus loads or have they restricted to only half capacity due to social distancing? As in 1 person per seat and half standing capacity.

Re: New bus contracts to drive improved services (as from 20

Very misleading "sticker" poster.

Noone is "selling the buses".

There is no "privatising" the buses but only "franchising to private contractors".

If they are going to run a campaign against franchising the operations then they could atleast make it factual!

Train replacement buses at Penrith now operate from the Bus Interchange rather than the carpark side of the station and have done so since the last shutdown.

Re: Parramatta light rail

There is a 30 min T1 stopping pattern at Granville and Clyde, presumably to match the T6 connections. They could continue this but drop the Clyde stop. Granville will also have SIX T2 services per hour to the city. There is a 15 min T1 frequency from Granville and Clyde stations. Sent from my CPH17...
