Re: December 2017 timetable changes

Currently riding 445 on a 361 to TTP. Maybe my last ride? Who knows. If you were to split the G40, you could do it in January. Demand for it from FU will soon die right down. Have the split ready for the new uni year in March. Do you all reckon there still should be an obahn service from Victoria Sq...

Re: December 2017 timetable changes

I reckon the G40 route should be abolished. Goodwood Road G10 services should be increased from 30 minutes to 15 minutes between 900am and 300pm to compensate for this. Those G40 buses could be put to better use to improve frequencies on the O-Bahn between TTP and the City. Once the new Flinders Li...

Re: [Nov/Dec 2017] SA Transport observations

Whilst waiting for my bus this morning which is often a CNG SL202, I had the pleasant surprise of SL202 Diesel 444 arriving. A lucky break given the few remaining SL202 diesels, and with 443 gone last week, it was probably the last trip I'll get on one! It still seemed to be running as well as ever...

I saw 441 on service earlier in the week. 445 has just left Arndale on a 253X to the city.

Re: Ideas for some Northern Suburb changes

More train services are needed, then you can turn the 224, 228 into feeders, there's zero point in having so many buses servicing main north, south of Mawson Lakes, the freed up buses can be used as feeders into Smithfield, Elizabeth, Salisbury, Parafield and Mawson Lakes running more express train...

Ideas for some Northern Suburb changes

Having had a bit of time on my hands lately, I have put some thought into how I would improve services in the northern area. I thank you in advance for reading my post, and look forward to hearing your thoughts, both good and bad, about my thoughts and ideas. I am aware that Lonsdale and Aldgate bus...

443 is doing the 9:17am 361 from Port Adelaide to TTP. When I get on I will try and see if she is scheduled for track work today.

Re: EVERY Adelaide Metro Route

Been a while since you posted! I was wondering how the bus riding is going? I assume you are a student so you hopefully have had a good few weeks to catch as many routes as possible.

Just out of curiosity, what exactly is the Southlink Engine idling policy as I saw it posted in another thread but thought it was more appropriate to post it here. Thanks in advance I am informed by a driver friend that idling time is three minutes. Makes for a hot or cold wait for the next run, de...

Re: The Random Admet Question Thread

Hi!! There is a history thread which has excellent details of the history of routes around the Seacombe area. If you are using the PC version, you can go to the thread and look up Seacombe or the route numbers (630/243/M44, 640/246, 641/247 and the service which is now 248 which is a hybrid of 640/6...

Re: O-Bahn upgrades

I have seen many motorists make their own carpark because of lack of carparks at Paradise Interchange and Golden Grove ParkNRide. By the way would it be more clever to start 591s from Golden Grove Park & Ride rather than Golden Grove Village in peak hour?[/quote] Part of me agrees with starting the ...

I know any bus from LCB can do a 300. Unusual to see 542 doing the 3 hour lap. Just spotted at Arndale leaving on its clockwise trip. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170626/af33b593f5b928f7d71299221627c7d6.jpg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk There are quite a few LCB St Agnes Rigids and Artic...

Re: [May/June 2017] SA Transport observations

Just a thought......would Transit Times Real Time for certain routes be switched off because of the detours around Glenelg?

This could explain J1, 167, 168, 263/263/265 and 251/252/253/254 not currently working.

See what happens when Jetty Rd opens up again.

Re: O-Bahn upgrades

That's interesting. So what will happen to these validators when the track buses run a "silver" service? Will people click that there are validators at every door? Or will they have services running from TTP to City only using this and the buses fitted out with the extra validators only used on thes...

Re: The Random Admet Question Thread

I recently moved to a new area in the Port Adelaide Enfield Council.

I am rather impressed with their community bus service. 3 times a week, every hour from 9am to 4pm, a bus comes past and services a fair few local facilities.

What other councils have decent community buses still?

Will you be covering strange short workings/extended workings as well? Two that I know of. There is a C2 on a Saturday morning that leaves GGV on the down and only goes as far as stop 80 Golden Grove Rd. It does not continue as a 548. And there are two 548s that commence at GGV of a morning. One goe...

Re: EVERY Adelaide Metro Route

Very keen on knowing how they go with the 451A. The only way I can see is a Saturday night. Get off the 451A with a mate. Scurry to Broadmeadows Station, get the last train to Gawler Central and the N224 back to Adelaide.

You could say the same about H30 and X30. I think this person is keen on doing all the buses and all the different route numbers.

Re: EVERY Adelaide Metro Route

Personally, I would do the 443 on a Sunday night. While every effort is made to run that service on time, any delay more than likely will mean a missed train connection at Elizabeth. Sunday's they start earlier and give more options of transport after doing the loop. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
