Re: Jan 2021 bus changes - STA region 7

Speaking of Route 525: when the route is shortened to operate out of Strathfield only, it seems the weekend DFO services will also disappear. Currently on weekends they operate in the peak direction for around 3 hours each, at 30 minute intervals. It amounts to around 8 trips per direction per day ...

Re: STA Observations 2021

Looks like this has been addressed with recent changes. I have regularly seen a couple of artics on the 114 on weekend afternoons, Hopefully people also know to use Route 238 (which operates every 20 minutes during weekends) out of Balmoral Beach to interchange at Mosman Junction for Route 100? But...

Wasn’t the 272 truncated to Nth Willoughby just so they could put long bus on it? Thought the turns in Chatswood were unsuitable for long bus

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

Something that has crept in ("minor timetable change") is that route 263 now runs fully to Crows Nest (every 60 minutes) on Sundays/public holidays. Previously Sunday service only operated to Amherst St (Cammeray) with an unusual 70 minute frequency. this was advertised before the change, but there...

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

How is the 166 and 155 going to get from Rabbett St to Forestway Shops? And why don't they preserve the current 155 route and use the 169/280 routing for the 166 between Frenches Forest Rd East and Forestway Shops? i'm guessing around the block through the bit of Frenchs Forest south of Warringah R...

Re: Jan 2021 bus changes - STA region 7

I have a minor inkling of suspicion that the new Route 200 will replace Route 320 at the northern end when Region 9 changes (CSELR + other changes) are put into place. So it'll just be Route 320 Mascot - City (Martin Place?) via Rosebery and Route 200 Gore Hill - City - Bondi Jn (Gore Hill - City t...

Just drove M/O 9281 today for the first time. Walked into the bus and tried to find the gear selection, which to my surprise was a lever, which I wasn't even aware existed in the fleet at my depot. It looked pretty out of place and I thought somebody just hacked the lever on somehow as a temp fix, ...

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

Taking a step back, the transportnsw.info page still doesn't mention where the 430 will now terminate, only saying it's City - Sydenham! I'm guessing an even more comprehensive list of changes will be pumped out soon, now that it's mid November. At the same time, it's also become a sufficiently sho...

I think it makes much more sense to keep 188X as the peak hour express service instead of 190X.
The 190x will be rerouted direct via Barrenjoey Rd instead of via Newport Arms

281-3 go nowhere near the Victoria Av/Penshurst St corner.
plan is for them to be re-routed, i believe, whilst 277-280 and 284 will stay on Boundary Rd

Interestingly enough, from 12 Oct 2020 TripView and transportnsw.info show route 194 as operating to a 10 minute frequency. This is despite the current timetable since 23 Aug only having services every 30 minutes. https://i.imgur.com/gkbQJmt.png https://i.imgur.com/MnlEZZM.png you can thank COVID f...

Peak hour peak direction 194s to be renumbered as 194X, remaining services to travel via Cammeray and stay as 194
L70 to remain as L70 though, not renumbered to 270x like L90 to 190x
