Re: Transdev Melbourne news July - December 2016

Noticed a Gemilang and #500 or #503 run on the 216/219/220 routes in Footscray today. Is this normal now?

Re: Bus-train 'interchanges' in Melbourne (Vic.)

I think we should add Footscray to the list as the worst multi-modal interchange ever. After two major redevelopments at the station, including one for RRL, neither included any plans or improvement to a bus interchange. You need to be a regular at Footscray to just barely understand where all the b...

Re: Victorian Rail & Tram Observations January - June 2015

has there been any update on the new C class PIDs since the trial on C.3027? (or 3025 whichever one it was)

Re: Victorian Rail & Tram Observations January - June 2015

B class trams are now getting next stop info displays installed on-board, and they seem to be replacing the destos aswell. So far I believe B2.2005 and B2.2019 have been done.

Re: Transdev Melbourne news January - June 2015

Haha!! I agree. Seems to be the way things are going. It seems Transdev sells off Footscray depot, and THEN starts looking for a replacement! I recall reading about some sort of rumour going around that Transdev were looking for a new location in the Sunshine area, but I don't think that was ever p...

I don't want to start an argument here, however this is a transport forum and things such as vehicle/fleet numbers are relevant especially when involved in an incident like this.
Its always good to know which particular tram is affected

Because it serves a number of prisons, white buses are used just to make in less excitable in a way.

Re: some : PTV LIVERIED BUSES

The PTV livery looks nice to me. Somehow it works better when viewed in person rather than photos. Sometimes designing on moving objects can make it feel nicer

Re: Transdev Greenfield changes

To be fair, none of the proposal documents mention the 912 as a 'Smart' bus, but they are now considered part of the 'orbital' network

Re: Transdev Greenfield changes

Update for Route 220. Every second service will head into the CIty off peak, which means it'll still keep a 20 minute off peak service to the City alongside the 216.

Re: Transdev Melbourne news July - December 2014

People who wanted commute from The Pines to Greensborough have been screwed; they will now need to take a bus to Templestowe and change to 911. Why does the new 912 go to Doncaster and not The Pines? Doncaster SC would be well covered by the new 911 and 903. I mean how could they miss this glaringl...

Re: Transdev Greenfield changes

There has just been a change on the transdev website for route 220
it now says Sunshine to City (Peak) and Sunshine to Footscray (off-peak)

I really hope that 220 off peak services dont terminate at Footscray

Re: Transdev Greenfield changes

It seems 216 will enter via Dudley St to Queen Vic Market and terminating at the end of Queen St.
The line for the 220 seems to disappear from the end of Lonsdale St, so I'm assuming it'll also terminate at the Collins St end of Queen St, not servicing Queen Vic Market

Apart from a very small section in Sunshine, the two routes would be identical under the new changes anyway.

Re: PTV livery list

The current livery/graphical image is quite good and I suspect the new government would rather be seen fulfilling it's "local" promises than rebranding yet another time. But on a more practical note, what does the "re-branding" achieve, other than involving needless expense? Coming from a graphic d...

Re: Transdev Melbourne news July - December 2014

'Doncaster SC' is not an issue. Yes there are other 'shopping centres' around, but other suburbs still use 'SC' for their largest or main shopping centre. Also, PTV and Smartbus signs all refer to it as Doncaster SC anyway.

Re: PTV livery list

Westrans 111 was in red stripes for quite some time after being in Werribee Zoo AOA.
If previous observation and memory is accurate, Transdev 353 is in PTV, not AOA
Transdev 586 is also in PTV.
