Printed timetables

Post by Skexis »

Rumour today is that AdMet will no longer produce printed timetables and instead will expect everyone to look the info up online. Has anyone else heard anything about this?

Wouldn't surprise me,as they(DPTI) have had their budget cut,so anyway to save moey. Not everyone has a computer /printer,so this won't help a lot of people. It would be a backward step.

What about timetables on bus Poles?.

We used to have a 2 timetable display Racks out the front of the Elizabeth shopping center both have been removed,

Have they done this at all other major shopping centers?

Noticed an ad in the window of the Currie St info centre yesterday, with a picture of printed timetables with a big red line through it. I think the ad (didn’t have time to read it while in traffic) was promoting a timetable kiosk (an I store computer for customers to use I guess, going by the picture).

A member of this board has posted on another forum that this is incorrect.
He has spoken to DPTI Marketing Department,and they have advised that what is happening in the future is that the print runs will be smaller to avoid costly wastage.

Both Marion and TTP Westfield Centre have large displays of local and other timetables.

Have they done the public a favour by replacing the boards with those rather uninformative green pieces of paper?
