Re: Jan 2021 bus changes - STA region 7

I can remember the days when there was a direct bus service from Glenorie to Eastwood via Pennant Hills Rd. Eastwood is now completely cut off from the North West by bus. I would imagine that those passengers who board 515 closer to Ryde, including those students at TAFE on Blaxland Rd, would be mi...

Re: What gives you the S&#T's!?

@ScaniaGrenda I know what you mean. You find a favourite product and they inevitably get discontinued, altered or they stop stocking it. I'm mourning the loss of so many products like SPC ratatouille canned tomatoes I used to pour on my pasta with fried salami. I still miss it to this day. Another i...

Re: Sydney Metro - Tallawong to Bankstown

I bet developers would love to get their paws on Hyde Park and Wynyard Park. I bet the Liberals would allow it if not for the inevitable backlash. I was put off Hyde Park years ago when I heard news reports of muggings going on there in the evenings and one time when I went to sit down to read a boo...

Hmm, they had no time for us before Covid hit but now want to block off streets to churn out their money spinning garbage. No thanks, rack off!!

Re: Parramatta Road Bus Fire

That is another good thing with the Mercedes dashes. They are isolated units suspended from the steering column. These new computer buses have to integrate everything into the front of the body so any hidden electrical fires get a chance to take hold while concealed inner all that cladding to make t...

All buses should have a fire extinguisher. Did he use it?
It might have saved a 3/4 $million bus.

Re: GLEBE POINT RD BUS FIRE.

Why it's the driver being treated like a hero? Surely there was plenty of warning. Stop bus, open doors, out.
How challenging is that??

Re: Sydney Metro - Tallawong to Bankstown

Sydney CBD will always remain top dog by an immense margin, if for no other reason, the harbour attractions that surround it. A little cement wier won't cut it.
The decentralisation indulgent fantasy world is a distraction to progress.

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

This should have been available 20 years ago at least but you know the pattern, it's always been this way there will be no trying another way lest we displease some two bit group living in the 50s who don't want anything to improve. No we must adhere to a system devised by people lying in graves! Wh...

Re: Jan 2021 bus changes - STA region 7

Because Sydney people, especially in the North have a deep seated long standing resistance to changing for anything, especially another bus. All door boarding into a three door true flat floor bus (not low entry) bus on the trunk routes with genuine turn up and go frequency and actual bus priority w...

Re: Jan 2021 bus changes - STA region 7

The original Ryde tram line crossed on a flat bridge over the old Gladesville bridge. They would need to build a replacement on the site of this former bridge as the newer one would be too steep and impractical to share with light rail. BRT should be considered first with plans to upgrade it to ligh...

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. Routes 515 & 518 Are...

Re: Parramatta light rail

Here's a You Tube video that discusses light rail vs bus rapid transit (BRT). https://youtu.be/fh1IaVmu3Y8 What I gleaned from it is BRT works well for the 1/3 cost of LR as long as it includes all the vital features that define BRT without compromise during build or operation. I have not much hope ...
