Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2021

What about 1462? That's a Path bus so IF it were going anywhere it would probably go Kalgoorlie or Geraldton, but neither of those towns have any NHs left to replace so I doubt it will be going anywhere any time soon, if at all. Current approach seems to be keeping buses with the same operator wher...

Re: PTA / Transperth Service Changes - 2021

Why are no train replacement buses operating? Train replacement buses only operate when trains services are cancelled. Other than the three weekend closures during this disruption, trains will be operating and so replacement buses are not required. Furthermore, Transperth do not have sufficient bus...

So what? You do realise shifts can contain more than just circle, right???

Re: PTA / Transperth Service Changes - 2021

Not sure if Beckenham does much (if any) Cockburn work. A lot of late-night trips down there are done by Volvos, but without wrote knowledge of what bus belongs where, I cannot say what depot they're from (obviously not Southern River! 😂). If all three Swan depots do those feeders from Cockburn, th...

Obviously not. That's why Bus-1809 typed 1923 instead of 112, 113 or 117.

Re: PTA / Transperth Service Changes - 2021

Interesting list of changes. I'm so used to seeing a dozen instances of 'trips withdrawn due to poor patronage' whenever one of these pops up, but this time around it's almost entirely additional trips, and four new routes. Quite refreshing to see!

I think just worth noting that this isn't a prediction thread, rather a review thread... I agree. In case people forget, the topic is 'Stuff that happened in 2020'.

Re: Transport In Review 2020

Looks good, only thing I'd add is December also saw Path's final NHs withdrawn from revenue service. Good chance (but unconfirmed at this stage) December also saw the last NHs for Transdev (the remaining CR226Ls) parked up too. And I'm not sure if it's noteworthy enough to make your list, but 1434 w...

There's a lot of shared running between Joondalup and Marmion these days, especially common seeing Joondalup stuff on Warwick routes. Not so much the other way, though. There are a few, but not many Marmion shifts that venture up to Joondy

It's such a common occurrence, they need to have spares readily available. For every incident like 2033 that makes it onto the news there's 20 incidents that don't.

Haven't been out much recently so I am sure it's not the newest, but 2053 is back from refurb.

3207 and 3208 in service at Beenyup, which should leave 1850 as the final NH at that depot.

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

Also, what is the ratio of CV and Beckenham shifts on 998/999? Based on nothing but my own experience, the FULL circles seem roughly split across the three operators pretty evenly.

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

Anyway, the circle route is managed by Canning, so that explains why this area has one of the highest boarding figures. Managed by, yes, but that doesn't mean that any pax boarding a bus anywhere on the circle counts as a Canning contract boarding. I'll happily admit I don't know how patronage on t...

Has anyone else noticed SP/MC buses seemingly having a high presence on the 998/999’s of recent? I was under the impression that all Swan’s full Circles were operated by CV, but clearly not. Yeah I feel they've been gradually picking up more and more circle runs since around the time Mount Claremon...
