Re: AES Ticket Validators

Private operators did not have the green unit so my knowledge is limited on that part. I would think if you were to contact a few companies there would be and old un...

Re: NSW Railway Observations 2020

The fact that the XPT had a pilot on board, should alert you to the fact that alternative safe working was in force. The rules for "pilot working" in Victoria are unknown by me!

Re: Private Operators - June 2017

I do not know much about Perth but you also do not know much about Sydney.
The bus service in question is operated by a private company. Transport officers and Police can check any bus or train at any time.
Who operates it does not matter. :)
