Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2021

Today I was at Perth busport and noticed that TP2049 doing Route 389 to Wanneroo. I think that this was the first time that an OC500LE CNG doing a bus service to Wanneroo.

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

Reroute the Route 75. There is a bit of duplication with the ROute 72 from the city to Curtin. After the bus drives from Vic Park Bus Station, the bus should turn right onto Albany Hwy and drive past Victoria Park Shopping Centre. The bus would turn right onto McMillan St (to cater for more services...

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

The ROute 66 will be withdrawn and be replaced with additional Route 950 buses during peak hour from EQBS to Morley. I think there is duplication with the Route 950. THe Route 66 shares the same bus stop as Route 950. Perhaps if they throw in limited stops for the Route 950, which would service well...

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

I know that the Scania L94UA, MAN NG313F and Iveco Citelis CNG buses have the old livery. I've never been on the articulated CNG buses but I believed that the seats are outdated and needed to be refurbished at the end of the year. Do you know when will these three units be refurbished?

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

Last week I saw TP2378 (with the Airport livery) operating the Route 34. It was very strange why the bus with the special livery operating the Route 34. Normally buses with the airport livery operate on Airport routes including Route 40, 380 and 935.
