Re: Buses out of service for long periods

For various reasons many buses spend long periods of time out of service. Current examples :- Volvo 1900 Mile End Depot MAN NL 202 CNG 757,764,1754(accident damage) Morphettvile Depot Scania Artic L94UA 951 St Agnes Depot MAN NL 202 253 Morphettville Depot I imagine both companies have other buses ...

Re: October Bus Timetable changes

In my humble opinion, F routes along South and Main North Rds are pointless. People getting on at FMC and Sefton Plaza use the F buses and they seem to stop at a heck of a lot of stops sometimes.

Re: [Sep/Oct 2018] SA Transport observations

In my opinion, even the CNG NL232s would make for more reliable O'bahn vehicles than additional completely unmodified Scanias. Doing this is just adding wood to the fire. The M.A.N NL232 CNG’s were actually built for the Southern O-Bahn that never went ahead those brushes on the right next to the f...

Re: Good quality bus timetable app?

If you’re after timetables MetroMATE is easy to use

For more advance features I recommend using NextThere for looking up vehicle fleet numbers if you want to ride a particular vehicle.

Stupid SA government wasting money replacing the fleet yes some buses are old etc the SL202’s 11.190’s and soon the NL202 Diesels will start to go It makes no sense having an age limit for older buses when these buses are in good working order replacing them with a cheap unrealistic replacement are ...

Torrens Transit to acquire Light City Buses

H30 & 178 have never run on the O-Bahn. These services through-linked with former O-Bahn routes 530 & 578 (and 530X & 578X) respectively. Would be interesting to see if there are enough spare O-Bahn buses to make this happen, and if contract areas will be allowed to mix again if they might be broke...

That is awful news. It means more of these dreadfully built V2 CB80s on the streets when I thought we were finally relieved of new deliveries of these for good. I’m getting tired of seeing them, hearing them, I’m not a huge fan of the ZF Ecolife gearbox anyway Voith DIWA in a Volvo B7RLE is more en...

612 did some trips last night 235, 273, 235, 273, and the last 506 for the night
It’s great to see that being used on other routes and at night rather than being on 361’s most the time.

I guess we might hear about some tenders from well known companies then maybe CDC or Transdev?

I guess it doesn’t really matter which company has it there is always advantages and disadvantages its always been that way since privatisation happened.

1604 was sighted at Sims Metal last week, quite possible that it has been scrapped already.

Perth have got some Diesel Mercedes Benz O 405NH’s( like 542) stored, perhaps the Government or Light City Buses should look at purchasing some ? or even some of their Midi ones they’ll be suitable for the track.

im guessing that if the reported estimated damage for $150000 that 1161 could be close to a write off seem alot more damage than 1140 was From the footage I saw the fire looked to spread more than what was the case with 1140, so unfortunately 1161 may be joining 1120 (first Scania O-Bahn artic fire...
