Re: Stop signs

I can't stand cyclists on the road, and I can't stand them on the footpath. They truly are a menace.

Re: Is Parramatta, Auburn, Silverwater, Bankstown safe at ni

It depends on how street smart you are to be honest. These places are generally only dangerous if you don't know what you're doing.

Re: Saturday & Sunday timetabling, why not just weekends?

I personally don't see any reason why bus services shouldn't just have weekend timetables.

Re: Is Parramatta, Auburn, Silverwater, Bankstown safe at ni

I personally haven't had any bad experiences being at Parramatta, Auburn or Bankstown at night. But I can imagine there would be nicer places to be walking around at a late hour than those suburbs you mentioned.

Fleet Lists wrote:If you look at the numbers allocated they tend to fit in with similar types of buses in the range concerned.
Just as an example, all the buses from 300 to the mid 350s are O 500s (both Volgren and Bustech).

Re: PBC Repaints,Touchups,Polish

The buses in London don't seem to have as much trouble keeping their red liveries looking nice - is this just due to the weather differences between the UK and Australia?
