Re: STA Observations 2021

Especially during the summer holidays, Routes 245 and 257 (now 114) would get very busy in the afternoons running up from Balmoral Beach. I feel there should be a dedicated shuttle running from Spit Junction to Balmoral Beach in the mornings and reverse in the afternoons. Having it every 20 mins wou...

Re: Jan 2021 bus changes - STA region 7

Actually, counting up the buses departing Top Ryde City for either Central or Town Hall in the off peak (excluding the 507 as it's way too circuitous), this will be a decrease of 1 bus per hour during the off peak. Currently: 501 - 3 services/hr 515 - 2 services/hr 518 - 2 services/hr M52 - 4 servi...

Re: Jan 2021 bus changes - STA region 7

It really is quite disappointing to see such pointless routes the 515 and 518 have become and what the 517 will be. Similar to what's happened recently to the 177 between Dee Why and Warringah Mall for example, the routes are just too short and a waste of resources to run them. I’m not quite sure w...

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

From watching the other videos (and the information already here), these are the Christmas buses I've gathered:
-Carina: C1910
-Eagle Farm: Unsure
-Garden City: G1362
-Sherwood: S2020
-Toowong: Unsure
-Virginia: V2299
-Willawong: Unsure
Let me know of the other fleet numbers to add to the list.

Re: Jan 2021 bus changes - STA region 7

Cazza Your reference to the M44 replacing the current x438 does not make sense. I googled bus M44 and found it operates in South Australia. I should have been more clear. It's just how I have renumbered the 438X in my 'fantasy' network here -> https://bit.ly/2F386Ui). For arguments sake, I should h...

Basically the 438X but in my made-up network (https://bit.ly/2F386Ui) I have travelled on the 320 from Waterloo to St Leonards a few times outside peak time and the journey is a little under 30 minutes. If i followed your example I could catch the 301 or 302 to ...

Re: Jan 2021 bus changes - STA region 7

I think they're kidding themselves if they think passengers are going to switch buses several times per overall trip and be happy about it. The quickest journey for me from my home in Ashgrove to my current work near Mater Hill (a journey of about 8km by car) involves 3 buses (sometimes 4 if I time...

Re: Jan 2021 bus changes - STA region 7

so that passengers can travel direct to their destinations ‘all in one trip’ That's what a car is for. Any good transport network needs connections. You physically cannot make a bus or train line from everyone's front door to their destination: that is what a car is. However, these connections only...

Re: Jan 2021 bus changes - STA region 7

They've made a lot of the Ryde area routes very short and seemingly useless. Route 515 will run for only just over 4kms... Doesn't really do much, is inefficient for operators and is a bit useless for the residents living along the route. Why not just extend the 458 from Ryde to Eastwood and that so...

Seems like this is a regular Toowong run (possibly an extra service since 66 frequencies are back to Every 10 mins as uni has finished for the year).

Seen it operated this morning and yesterday morning too.

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

This morning, yet again, I jumped on a 333 (T1251 for anyone's interest) from Roma St-Cultural Centre around 8:10am. It left Roma St (didn't see how many people got off here) with a full standing load (pretty much every seat taken plus standees right to the back)- easily close to 60 people and ridic...

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

Sherwood's 5110 on an inbound 125 tonight. They can run TAGs on lower patronised routes late at night but it's seemingly impossible to have any sort of high capacity bus servicing any northside route :oops: I've been out on the network a lot recently (especially during peak hours) and can't help but...

Re: Transport for Brisbane- Routes by Depot

Route 27 is a temporary shuttle only, hence why I haven't included it. I believe it is only rostered to be run by Sherwood. Route 28 is a uni semester only route, operated out of Carina. This is why it wouldn't be coming up on the route search (as it isn't going be operating for the next few months)...

Re: New bus network arising from CSELR (L2/L3) opening

Trackless trams will hopefully be a more widespread, happy medium, providing clean, green travel (like electric buses) but with the capacity of a tram (negating the need for mass disruptions to implement light rail infrastructure).

Re: Transport for Brisbane Observations 2020

I think they try avoid rostering rigids on the P142 just because of the sheer length of the route. If all seats were taken as the bus leaves the City (which is even less available seats in these COVID times), passengers would be left standing for the whole 40 odd minute trip to Greenbank. It is kind...

Re: December Bus Changes - Northern Beaches and Lower North Shore

Loop services like the 442 are very unreliable. I made a point of this on the 24/11/18 (before the December 2 changes came out) expressing my concern for the OTR of Route 442 (especially since it was one of the main routes I used when I was down in Sydney). Not 3 days after the changes came into pla...
