Re: [Sept/Oct 2020] SA transport observations

Scania #1239 has a large side ad for North Adelaide's SANFLW Premiership win, sponsored by Statewide Super. This is the same as has happened for Norwood & South Adelaide in recent years, but it has been a different bus for each team.

The M44 timetable shows it takes an hour and 21 minutes during the day - longer at peak times, shorter at night.

The J1 doesn’t service all stops so that would have to change for it to be a Go Zone.

The F stands for Fast, it has different stopping arrangements to make the trip faster for outer suburbs residents as The Phonj said.

Re: Knoll faces Liberal Party revolt on bus cuts

The 222 should go back to its original route running between City and Gepps Cross with F buses running pick up only until Stop 25 on the outbound and set down only after Stop 25 on the inbound. The 224/224F should revert to running along Port Wakefield Road then Salisbury Highway, 225/225F running ...

Re: Current Bus Contracts/Renewals

If so why does it still appear on Southlink's website as Elizabeth? SouthLink never update things. The 560 timetable still shows it turns right from Playford Bvd to Philip Hwy - that route was changed probably 8-10 years ago. How long have they had the 222 desto sign that the route number jumps fro...

Edinburgh Depot fleet and drivers will go to Elizabeth Depot.( to operate J1,500,502). There has been no such thing as "Elizabeth Depot" for several years, since that part of the suburb of Elizabeth West was renamed to Edinburgh North. The depot, for the last few years, has been called "Edinburgh N...

The 222 and other Main North Road buses has the published route on the timetable heading North from Stop 6 O'Connell Street as being along Prospect Road, then turn right on to Fitzroy Terrace, then left on to Main North Road to Stop 7 Medindie. At the moment roadworks on Prospect Road through the p...

Re: [May/June 2019] SA Transport observations

Last night on the news they said it was likely an electrical fault that caused the blaze. Some video footage showed the front of the bus burning but not the back of the bus (initially), so maybe it was somewhere around the computer at the front of the bus where it ignited? Doesn't look like it was a...

Re: Current Bus Contracts/Renewals

Great work, coverage looks good! Only one minor criticism is with route 566, and not just your proposal, but current as well. It is such a windy route and takes too long to get from end to end. Sure, there are plenty of catchment areas along the way, but to get from Golden Grove to Mawson Lakes, it ...

Re: Torrens Transit Bustechs.

The wheelbase on the Scania engines with Custom bodies is quite short and they can manouevre well. The Bustechs are a metre longer and have a longer wheelbase, so they don't have such a good turning circle.

Re: Torrens Transit Bustechs.

At the end of the day, you won't see as much of the livery once advertising is introduced. These buses look good and are fast and smooth on the road, but they don't have a great turning circle. Some of the tighter turns are difficult or impossible with these buses. I've seen a few 3-point turns alre...

The J1 mention on AdMet website is actually a link to the J1 timetable which includes J1, J1A, J1G, J2 and J2G. That's all good and well for those that click the link.
