Re: City Tram Line Extension Works Detours

I looked over the fence lunchtime today (Saturday).

If that is ready 6am Monday I will be very surprised.

Re: [Jan/Feb 2018] SA Transport observations

9:30am Wednesday 10/1. MetroMATE is not showing real time.

Went to see if there were any issues on the Adelaide Metro site, and the site is down.

I posted in the tram line extension as well.

Re: O-Bahn upgrades

I cannot see a problem with what they are doing. Regardless of the election, they got the tunnel open sooner than later and they have some finishing bits to do. I swear if they delayed the opening the media in this city still would have complained. Seems everything positive in this city is complaine...

Re: New Years Eve services

My 254 scheduled for 1:25am never turned up.

While waiting, I did notice that there were a lot of artics on tram duplicate services and only rigids on King William St services from LCB.

1:00am NYD. City bound Obahn tunnel is closed.

I could not tell if the outbound tunnel was open or not.

For Gunzels interested in catching the “one-off” services, the 150s scheduled to connect with the 157s at stop 18 are showing the destination 150W

Re: [Nov/Dec 2017] SA Transport observations

I am on my 7th bus today. Even the 415 I caught at 3:51pm had 7 passengers.

Both my 451s (even the one at 10pm) had good numbers on them.

And, I saw a Torrens Artic on a 230 around 10:55pm at Ovungham.

Me too. I thought it may be Vodafone or something.

Lucky lunch is at Greenwith and dinner at Andrews Farm! The 415/train/451 transfers are tight but should be ok on Christmas Day.

That works for me and most others. It does not work for the poor lass with intellectual disabilities that was freaking out on the bus yesterday morning that the timetable had been removed. Not saying she could have the ability to look up a timetable on line. She may be able to. She may not either. S...

Re: [Nov/Dec 2017] SA Transport observations

Observed on my 251 this morning that all timetables have been removed from the stops.

Is this happening anywhere else?

[Nov/Dec 2017] SA Transport observations

Cornflute signs are up along King William St. detours for services during the first two weeks of January. Looks like all services have one up.

Better than the confusion along Grenfell St at 9am this morning.

Re: December 2017 timetable changes

Could it be that they trailed these stopping patterns in Currie/Grenfell Sts when they redirected the 144-147-150-157. I thought the limited stops worked well and kept services moving.

Re: December 2017 timetable changes

So many factors make a bus late. Road conditions. Passengers not having their money or metro cards ready when boarding. I could go on. I am assuming that you work at Bedford’s. I feel for you and your workmates. These changes, if ever so minor, can cause raised anxieties. Even re-routing the G40 in ...

Re: December 2017 timetable changes

Regarding the 721F and 722F - I would make them express to and from FMC.

Eliminated the “fast” bus stopping every second stop to pick up or set down

Re: December 2017 timetable changes

This would make a mess of Kensington Rd, but hey, it’s the genesis of an idea.

142 travels via Grant Ave then Kensington Rd and normal route.

144 travels Kensington Rd, Portrush Rd then normal route.

Maybe they ran them as 544 as C1 or C2 would imply that it ran to the NRAH.

Who knows.

Re: [Nov/Dec 2017] SA Transport observations

The 6:27pm 361 did not operate from Port Adelaide last night. Cancelled due to lack of manpower. While it did not bother me too much, several passengers were annoyed that the last service of the night was cancelled and they had to go through the city to get home. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
