Re: [July/Aug 2020] SA transport observations

I spotted 2214 on a 228F earlier, so I'd guess that that one has been transferred already.

Re: Question: Does varying from the published route where there are no stops really matter?

The 222 and other Main North Road buses has the published route on the timetable heading North from Stop 6 O'Connell Street as being along Prospect Road, then turn right on to Fitzroy Terrace, then left on to Main North Road to Stop 7 Medindie. At the moment roadworks on Prospect Road through the p...

Re: Current Bus Contracts/Renewals

It will be interesting to see if this results in a mass renumbering of SouthLink's northern fleet. Remove the '2' and call it new?

Re: Buses out of service for long periods

What about the Scania artic involved in an accident in the last week or so? I think I saw 1178 in the news report, but I didn't get a close-up look at the fleet number.

Also, just to have up-to-date info in this thread, 2201 has indeed returned to service as predicted earlier.

Re: Good quality bus timetable app?

The update has rolled out now. Downloading the update from the Play Store gave me version 4.4.5. It's working great now. It's a lot simpler than MyStops, even if full timetables can't be checked.

Re: Good quality bus timetable app?

What version of the app have we all got? I have version 4.4.4, and when trying it earlier today, even following the instructions given, it wasn't showing vehicle details, just what was shown in the screenshot posted by Diesel_MAN earlier. Now however, it seems to be showing nothing at all, searchin...

Re: Good quality bus timetable app?

The app refuses to rotate, unlike MyStops. The image is cropped due to forum guidelines.

Edit: uninstalling and reinstalling it made no difference.

Go into settings and try "check for updates--check now".
That was one of the first things I did - it's all up-to-date.

Route 97A which runs between the old RAH and the new RAH will cease next Friday.The route is covered by the new Tram service now running between the 2 locations. There only ever seemed to be one or two passengers on board any given 97A, so it's good that they've finally decided to stop running that...

If this is the case, why haven't the timetables been updated to reflect this? From my observation, 72_ buses still sit where A1 was without picking up any pax, t...

The Fleet Lists page for Torrens Transit was updated today.http://fleetlists.busaustralia.com/index-sa.php

The ex-O-Bahn SL202s have been removed, but 1704 is still listed. The details for the latest Scanias have also been added, such as their location.

1640 broke down in the middle of Pulteney Street this afternoon. I saw a Torrens Transit repair vehicle take a very quick look at the engine, but couldn't see if it was alright afterwards.

Does that mean in-service buses won't be stopping there while for much longer? It's a somewhat popular stop for passengers alighting at certain times of day.

1601 and 892 from Mile End have been appearing on Camden Park's shifts lately. 1679 from Newton also seems to still be there after about a month or more. Are the extra buses there so they can spare more low floors for train subs?

All SL202 CNGs have a ZF transmission, as do all other MAN buses currently in service in Adelaide, excluding the diesel-fueled SL202s.
