I can't see any rail connections for any bus services departing Mawson Lakes, Salisbury, Elizabeth, Noarlunga Centre, Seaford, Blackwood, etc. Connections seem to be a thing of the past - in printed form at least...

Only connections that exist these days seem to be Southlink bus/bus connections with the 721, T840, etc, but even these arent really listed (even the 721/721R times mention to catch a 720H but you need to look at the 720 timetable for city departure times)

Last bus every night on the 263 Route will now become a 263A terminating at Dunrobin Road instead of Marion Interchange.

Same with the last 248, now 248A terminating at Morphettville Depot.

Also, new bus timetables are available in the Currie St Infocentre, but not tram yet

On the 830F/834/835 timetable it shows connections with 860F/864F services. All other hills feeders mention connections as well.

Thats correct. All SouthLink hills buses have connecting feeders and those feeders have to wait for those buses listed to arrive (set down) before departing (unless has had the approval by Aldgate to depart in extreme circumstances where buses are over 15 mins late).
What even is a bus?

And usually when that happens the driver has already asked whether anyone needs the connecting feeder.

You would think the 248A would continue along Bells Rd and Morphett Rd on request, setting down only - but no!

I wonder what the last 557 from PBI does...?
jibb wrote: The cost of doing individual signs would not be practical,apart from being prohibitively expensive. The idea of the signs is to draw peoples attention to changes-they then have the option of going on-line via computer,smartphone,tablet,or ringing the Adelaide Metro helpline,or failing that call into the Adelaide Metro info centre outlets in the City. Many local shops/newsagents have local timetables as well.
I went into the Stirling "Oak Plaza" newsagent today and asked if they ad the new timetables. They said they had just ordered them in and they would be in stock by Friday, so I imagine most newsagents are in the same boat.
14 days to go...

Several I went to today already had them in,as they are serviced by an Adelaide Metro contractor who delivered most of them on Monday(except Glenelg tram which is still not available).
The info centre in the City is already out of some of the new timetables .

Missing off the Adelaide Metro list of new timetables is H33,as it has a new timetable available on-line and in hard copy.

Noticed today that the new bus stops have been put up along East Parkway in Northgate for new route 206 and also one new bus stop along Wilkinson Road in Para Hills, due to rerouting of the 229.

Funnily enough I saw small printed corflute sign out today at stops 36, 30, 36A, 36C (in the Hills). One mentioned the new 820/821/822 and on stops 36A and 36C it mentioned that the 865 replaces the 868. I would've taken a pic but at my stop (37 Longwood Rd) there wasn't one (of course :roll: ). Tomorrow I might go and take a pic of one tho.

With the amended J!X new timetable and the service 1/2 hourly on weekdays(daytime) it will require at least 2 buses at any one time to operate the service.
Will be interesting to see which other bus/buses joins the Double Decker?

It'll probably be similar to the Sunday T843, which uses two buses as well, 3401 and then any random bus.

Found at stops 38, 36C and 36A Longwood Rd. Probably more further towards Aldgate as well.

While on my way to Stirling, I noticed that the new timetable was already at my stop.
New timetable already installed at stop 37 Longwood Rd. Stirling newsagent hasn't even got any yet!

King William St Stop X2 "relocating south" as per notice on stop.
Not sure how far south it can go though, not much wiggle room around there!

Hopefully this time they get round to updating the timetables at many Bus stops in the Elizabeth area, Midway road just to pick one still have old 2012 timetables in place for the 400, And at the Elizabeth Railway station According to the Sigh you still can get Bus route 407, :D

That could explain why the set down stops on King William Street for 7xx routes are being changed from V1 and X1 to W2 and Y2

I saw today at stop X1 KWS that it is relocating south as well.

On another note, route T843 will service all stops in Hahndorf (51-terminus) as opposed to the current running of just stopping at stop 55.

Replacement Timetables have gone in at Bus Stop C at the Elizabeth Railway Station, All correct for Buses Leaving Elizabeth on the C1/224/400/500 times for Buses heading away from Elizabeth However They have got it wrong with the 560 timetable it is the timetable for Buses from TTP to Elizabeth.
