Re: Introducing OPAL Card

Not sure if it's been said, or whether this is the right thread... but Busways (Region 1) went live this week with their Opal readers, and I used it on Monday. Supposedly; the drivers were given a 3 1/2 hour lesson on using the Opal machine in conjunction with their machines. One driver said that fo...

Re: Private Operator Observations - August 2014

Just out of curiosity, has anybody seen a 691 (of BMBC, Penrith-Mt Riverview) operating with the desto displaying 691? I always see them operating as 690B at Penrith... When the routes were all changed back in January 2010, the 691 itself was curtailed to Blaxland - Mount Riverview. Services from P...

Re: New Routes for Western Sydney Busways

In the original proposal to TfNSW route 794 was meant to go via Nepean Hospital, which I think would have attracted more patronage than the chosen duplication of 791/793. I think the reason that the 794 isn't (or wouldn't) go to Nepean Hospital is because the 774/5/6 already go right past the hospi...

Re: New Routes for Western Sydney Busways

Re: Desto Time 30 - Bosnjaks Penrith

Really nice to see these old-styled destos. Can't believe there was a time when Penrith services had no runs to Glenmore Park or even Mount Druitt.... and the old 790 route (probably not that one), but I remember an old 790 going to Nepean Hospital and then onwards to St Marys

Re: New STA timetables 20/10/2013

Just curious as to what has happened to the 400 service (Burwood - Bondi Junction via Airport). Has it been absorbed by other routes or just scrapped all together in order to get more people to use the Airport Line.

I can count at least 6.... 5 in the front, and one right at the back of the queue; there might also be the possibility of a seventh (metrobus); but it might be a Sydney Buses metrobus; just don't know
