The extra services are interesting considering the services they cut in the last major review I think in 2018?

Re: NSW TRANSPORT - Trip Planner & Departures

Probably makes sense (hence done on purpose) as why would you take a bus from and to the same place on the same trip?

No. Starting from North Sydney due to bridge works.
This does not answer my question. Where do T9 and Richmond trains terminate in the city?
Linto already answered this question.

So how do they get from North Sydney to Strathfield if the bridge is closed?
There are replacement buses running across the harbour.

Re: Parramatta light rail

The overriding consideration appears to be to make use of the Carlingford Line infrastructure, regardless of its merits, compared with the more direct route via Eastwood. Labor made the same mistake when considering options for the Parramatta to Chatswood Rail Link. I hope they don't make the same ...

They aren’t really advertised so they will disappear the same way they just appeared when they started. Same for all modes.

Wouldn’t be surprised if the Richmond branch eventually becomes part of the Cumberland Line full time with interchange at Parramatta required. They would hope most would choose Metro West.

Lane Cove Ferry to stop operating. Does anybody know if this will become a Sydney ferries service in the near future? Was the demand that low?

Re: Opal Discussion and Observations

Before we make masks compulsory for passengers, let's first mandate staff to wear one. I still see lots of bus drivers without a mask. If you are going to mandate mask wearing, it should be everyone, not just staff. Until such time as (if) it needs to become compulsory, adults can make their own ri...

Depends how it is done... The preferred scenario includes new rapid bus lines linking strategic centres, employment hubs and the Harbour CBD. This will be a network of high frequency, on-road bus services benefitting from infrastructure that delivers vehicle priority and high quality stops, with si...

Re: NSW Railway Observations 2020

Intercity services should not stop at more than 2 or 3 stops (max) in the suburban basin. One reasonable exception would be a day’s first and last services where there is no alternative suburban service operating at that time. It was unreasonable when CCNs stopped at both Eastwood and Epping (and We...

It is a rail replacement so should only stop at railway stations. However there are selected stops on selected routes which are in additional to railway station stops.

Re: New bus contracts to drive improved services (as from 2020)

If CDC has 4 and 7, well then a bus should be able to run routes in both regions. Lots of the R7 routes out of Parramatta surely would be better off operating out of Northmead than Ryde. Lots of R6 routes would be better off out of Port Botany than Tempe, if TSA was to get Region 9. The argument mi...

Re: Opal Discussion and Observations

The loss in revenue from the off-peak additional discount should be offset by more peak fare revenue. Considering how packed pre-6.30am trains can be, I think a 6-9:30 morning peak fare period probably would have been better than 6.30-10am.
