Re: Bus Routes - What would you do if you were in charge?

remove the 220 off Albany Hey and run it via Shepperton Road, as per the 219, then make the 930 Limited Stops from VPTS to Thornlie. The short working 220's would pick up the slack on Shepperton if the 220 was removed from Albany Hwy, there would be no service from Albany Hwy / Shepperton Rd / Wels...

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2019

Spotted TP0100 just after 6pm tonight doing 935F on Alexander Rd Belmont

Never seen this series this far East - always see them on 960’s in Vic Park

Was it change-off or is it always regular service at that time?

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2019

Canning Vale buses are notoriously difficult to track down since they cover such a wide area.
I agree on that too especially when finding TP1542/43 or the white destos.[/quote]

I saw 1542 Tuesday or Wednesday on Albany Hwy (driving past my workplace near Kent St), so either doing 177/78/79 or 220

Evening all

Spotted 1919 on Bannister Rd, turning right to Willeri Dr, Canning Vale this morning, and as I turned the other way, saw 2136 turning left into Hurley St, from Bannister Rd, heading to Omnibus Services, I presume.

[quote="TP1462"] BET 6-104 will be disconnected from the EMU and trucked back to Queensland for repair works,

Is it major repairs, that it has to sent back to manufacturer?

Hi all

Anyone know the fleet numbers of the Renault artic and Merc NH at back fence rear of Canning Vale depot?
(Renault 715 is still there, these 2 are parked next to it)
Rather curious why a "silver top" is on the back fence too :shock:

Can someone tell me, is there a "turning loop" for the 177F at Wyong Rd, Bentley, in order to do a return 177T? No. The last stop in Wyong Rd is the end of this service.
