Re: 158 Bus Route?

The 4pm trip out of Chatswood would most likely be for students who have come by train or bus from several of the private schools in the North Sydney area.

Re: Custom Element protoptypes due Nov / Dec 2020.

Surely an equally significant part of the announcement, not reflected in the thread name, is the first noted use of Custom Denning as the new brand name for the combined operations.

Re: Covid-19

The bus industry is a real case of split personality on Covid. The route service and school contract sector has been relatively unaffected with most employment and service delivery maintained. Drivers are obviously at some risk but mask use and reduced nos of pax seem to have managed or mitigated th...

Unfortunately the e-citaro remains irrelevant to Australia at this time as its overwidth and Europe is unlikely to produce a narrow version just for us.

Re: New bus network arising from CSELR (L2/L3) opening

I got as far as the proposed "rapid" bus route from Railway Square to Sutherland Hospital via Princes Highway before ROFLing.
Tried driving that route lately? The word rapid does not immediately come to mind.

Re: Other rail possibilties

There is a linkage between amplification and skyrail in Melbourne, mainly with the Caulfield-Dandenong section. This is very much at capacity having to cope with suburban services, V/Line pass every hour or more and several daily freight trains mainly interpeak. Even prior to Skyrail there were call...

Re: HISTORY of ADELAIDE - BUS, TRAIN & TRAM ROUTES

The purpose of the clock was to record on time running. If the bus was a little early the driver would often stand by the clock for a minute or so before clocking in. They were referred to as Bundy Clocks where I grew up in Melbourne and were used extensively on the tram system.

Re: Full Low Floor vs. Low entrance buses

I'd suggest the acid test for any low floor chassis is to be driven around West Wyalong for a few hours - that town has the most evil spoon drains in existence. If it works there it will work anywhere.

Re: The On Demand Services thread

Personally I would take all ridership figures everywhere since February with a grain of salt. This is not a normal year.
Wellington and Melbourne had 90% plus patronage reductions at different times in the last 6 months.

Re: PTA / Transperth Service Changes - 2020

That just transfers the burden of payment from the local residents who might actually use the service to all WA taxpayers, most of who won't. Not sure how that's a good thing.

Re: The last manual route buses in Sydney

They were not pre select as that requires the gear to be selected in advance of it being required - then activated by a foot pedal.
Busways B58s, Leyland Tigers and other models all had semi automatic gearboxes where the gear was selected at the time it was required.

The flash charging concept seems to be the way to go INHO.

These lay over for about 5 mins between trips and raise their panto ...
