Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

If 31xx is being reserved for future new artics (and great to hear there is potentially another 30 new artics on the cards) then yeah 32xx would be the logical next fleet range for Swan. I couldn't see the PTA recycling old fleet numbers for new deliveries, the ex Perth CAT's was a unique scenario w...

Re: Bus Routes - What would you do if you were in charge?

My idea is only a small one but heck it would improve the 565 Stockland Baldivis deviation immensely. The current deviation (red route on picture) is heavily congested south bound on Settlers Ave, the bus drivers always struggle to find an opening to turn right onto Settlers Ave from Atwick Tce and ...

Very happy to see the Oats Street crossing on the list, that area is one very disorganized mess and a traffic nightmare.

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

We haven't had any major bus fire in the last few years, which is a rather good sign. If 0109 is written off, it would be Path Transit's fourth OC500LE (and fifth vehicle) to be destroyed by fire. Surprisingly, Path hasn't been known to lose any vehicles to accidents. Swan Transit had 1313, 1564 an...

If there was excess buses in Joondalup they could have simply moved them to Shenton Park and withdraw more NH's from there.

All the 1300s are done :D 1398 came back around the same time 1414 was done in December, 1399 came back a week or so ago as well.

2016 is also back and I'm pretty sure 2011 has come back too

2011 is indeed back, saw it today at EQBS

On loan, 3048 is the only artic I didn't see in Rockingham today so presumably that's carked it up in Freo at some point and got changed off
3093 is still kicking around the Rockingham area with no sight of 3048.

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2019

With the aircon intake it's just a different type of filter that's been placed inside, some of Rockingham's B7's and OC's have had the same filter type installed over the last 6 months and Karrinyup started installing them in their OC's about 12 months ago.

Re: 1GRL423: The Only B8RLE Orange School Bus

Seating capacity looks fairly lacking, perimeter flip up seats would have been a good idea for the front half of the bus. Why so? It's clearly been built for special needs kids. 21 seats plus four dedicated wheelchair bays is plenty enough Ahh fair enough i thought it was just another run of the mi...

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2019

It's not all 29xx's, it's a case of put all the numbers into a hat that begin with 21, 22, 26 & 29, pull some random ones out and off they go with the Joondalup Contract. Seems to be absolutely no method to it whatsoever these days. Couldn't agree more... though the Joondalup list is nowhere near a...

Good to see they are finally implementing Sunday 402 services and reducing 404 services, hopefully down the track the 404 will be withdrawn completely with additional trips given to the 402.
