Re: Results of Adelaide Metro rail tender

I wonder if this was why they didn't retain the Outer South area. Could be they were already the front runner for the rail so were deliberately not given the bus.

You mean the 720. The 740 (withdrawn) service used to run between Colonnades and Seaford.

That's only worthwhile if there's a school nearby. Nearest to the interchange is Reynella East and they're a bit old for that.

Re: Terminal Turnaround Times

I've had turnaround times of as little as two minutes. Depends on how the shift is put together and it makes no difference if it's city or suburbs somewhere. Southlink Sunday shifts sometimes had only one minute between runs (not good).

Re: Railway Terrace depot - 6 months on

Update: The depot at Railway Terrace has been in use for around 9 months now. The only food/drink outlets nearby are across the road and consist of a Subway, an overpriced coffee shop or the café in Bunnings. The facilities provided for drivers in the depot are a kettle, a microwave, a fridge and a ...

As they are small/mini buses I wonder why they didn't choose an electric bus given the hype over global warming.

Doesn't that mean some numbers will be repeated? I thought that once a number had been used on a particular vehicle it wouldn't be used on another.
