That's because the 930 used to be the Perth to Thornlie leg of the 210 211 and 212 before 31/1/16.

Re: O500LEs: Great or Rubbish

I drive OC500LE's at my local depot and personally are quite happy with them. Granted they are starting to get a little long in the tooth (the ones I drive are mostly built in 2006). There are a few design issues I'd like addressed, but generally happy with them have been driving them on a regular ...

Re: PTA / Transperth Service Changes - 2021

I've been researching the upcoming Jan 31 changes for my timetable database and noticed there have been a few omissions/variations from the published information on the web site. Timetables changed (only changed/added routes listed): Bus 1 204 205 Bus 4 517 Moved here from Bus Timetable 17 Bus 5 22...

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

Welshpool used to exclusively run the 507 and had 1x peak hour 508F. 32's and 34's were shared between WP, BK, CV and SR. Midvale exclusively ran the 294, apart from 1 trip for a short period which was on a Southern River shift. The 507 was run by Welshpool because it was designated as an accessibl...

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

I guess that's partly why 36 and 75 were deployed from Midvale and Canning Vale respectively when Swan Transit had Kalamunda in the past. Some history here to help with perspective: Prior to 2012, the 36 and 75 were part of the Claremont/Belmont contract area. When the tenders were put up in 2011, ...

Re: PTA / Transperth Service Changes - 2020

The only one of these I have any real interest in is the proposed Route 233 . I would imagine there will be some pushback by Gosnells residents moving them onto the 231/232 because of the re-alignment of the 210 and 211 . As for the 233 , I would imagine proposed alternate route through Piara Water...

Is it only northern suburbs buses participating? None of them in SOR area.
1435 has one (as does 1613 & 2461).

Re: Timetable project of mine

I've finally got the project up to date. There are a lot of changes for 11/10/20 and took a lot of sifting through to get everything in. I've done a lot of checking and double checking, but if you find any errors or omissions, please let me know.

Details in the sig. Enjoy! :)

As an aside, in the Routes tab of my spreadsheet, ...

522 and 583 are two others that no longer exist, but that's all I could find other than what's already been mentioned. Whilst researching for my timetable project, I noticed that Route 522 silently dropped off Bus Timetable 120 on 13/9/20. . There appears to have been no mention of this on the web ...

Re: Timetable project of mine

Could it be Transperth forgot to update the composited timetables? The last available timetable for Timetable 87 was in 21/07/2019 which can be assessed here . I think this one may have been abandoned and someone has forgotten to remove it from the site. The other composite timetables I mentioned 6...

I've noticed Bus Timetable 87 (Midland/Stratton/Swan View composite) appears to have fallen off the perch. Attempting to acquire by trying https://www.transperth.wa.gov.au/timetablepdfs/Bus%20Timetable%2087%2020200816.pdf yields a 404 response. Mind you, I've never been a fan of these as I see them...

Re: List of Perth Bus Routes by Contractor

What if Canning and Southern River get operated by the incumbent from Kalamunda. Will Swan Transit still have any input from its other depots? Personally, now that Swan has Joondalup, it makes a lot of sense for Path Transit to take Canning and Southern River alongside Kalamunda. This makes it easi...

I've also found whilst updating my timetable database that some changes don't make it onto the web site.
