Re: VOLVO’S FIRST ELECTRIC BUSES IN AUSTRALIA DUE MID-2021

Volvo states the 7900E has a range of 200km, and with there being over 40 trips per day - based on your 4.5km circuit distance, it is at least 220km not including the trip to/from the depot. The NH's didn't do all the trips either, usually replaced by other midi's around midday.

Cheers! :wink:

Re: Accommodating passengers with limited mobility

A semi will not go around the same corners as rigids, let alone artics, without taking up twice the road, or probably destroying any street furniture. You try putting a semi on something like a 607X - getting into Sydney would be easy, but trying to turn from York to Druitt/from Druitt to Clarence, ...

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

So all the taxpayers money that’s been wasted on repairs, refurbishments, mechanic repairs for these piles of sh** obviously hasn’t worked may as well cut their losses and just start withdrawing them Same could be said about your car... When the fleet covers over 100 million km per year, occasional...

Ah, today's "What gives you the S&#T's!?" is the fact that the Federal Government allowed a ship (a live export ship, came from UAE) to dock at Fremantle, with knowledge of people on board with symptoms of Covid 19, and just happened to forget to tell the WA State Government about it.

Re: New bus contracts to drive improved services (as from 20

And this claim of "the right method" is based off what? Obviously, as someone not from Sydney (and has only spent 4 days there, mainly riding STA buses), I'm not entirely understanding of the issue the unions have over privatisation - based off my knowledge of the Perth method, Perth and (from what ...
