Heard on the news last night Covid 19 restrictions here in South Australia have just been implemented again.
100 Max at weddings and funerals, a maximum of 50 in private homes. Nothing major yet, more precautionary than restrictive.

Doesn’t appear to have been out except on that 1 occasion?
Perhaps there’s an issue with its vehicle ID or BCU - it passed me again today (around 1:30PM), but it’s not showing on real-time apps

There hasn't been any new Bustech's into service for several weeks. Last one was 1067(which has been off the road for almost 2 weeks).
I saw 1067 on King William Street today on a 245, so must be back in service

Re: Bustech CDI 1790

When was the last time 3401 was out? I haven’t seen it in quite a while

I know there was a new shift cut done, wondering what that will mean for the decker(s)? Lots more T840s now doing 864/835/837/838/839 services before/after city runs

Possibly no longer needed. 2744-45. 2854-57 [previosuly suggested as Aldgate]. The four Rosas 2602/3/5/6 ... may have gone to Link SA or some...

Re: [July/Aug 2020] SA transport observations

2858, 2522 both at Aldgate/Barker. Can’t confirm 2523 but it’s rumoured to be in the hills too. I wonder if 2857 is in the hills too, which would give a clean run from 2854-2858

Ironically, 3375’s former number is 2858

Ah, the TransitPlus livery. If there was something to break up the white front, this would've been the second-best looking livery Adelaide buses have held, only bet IMO by the RedMet livery. They used to - “TransITplus” was written in black and blue on the front and sides. Later “SouthLink” in blac...

Re: Knoll faces Liberal Party revolt on bus cuts

The Premier Stephen Marshall has announced that the proposed cuts to bus routes and stops has been cancelled and will not go ahead--good news. Great, so Adelaide’s 20 year old and outdated system will remain dysfunctional While I agree with most that the New Network wasn’t perfect, I believe with a...

Re: The Random Admet Question Thread

I don’t believe so, on the Parliamentary Report released a few months ago (and in the contract document for the hills), the 836, 856, 857 are still there. Not sure why only the HL1/HL2 were cut. I’d assume 836,856,857 will be renumbered too

Re: Consultation on new AdMet Network

It wouldn't be a great loss with the 'F' service's disappearing as they currently take 28mins to travel from Stop 13 to the City and the 861's take 30mins. During the inter-peak, the 'F' service's take 22mins vs 23mins for 861's. It’s not about the time, but the perceived speed of the service. The ...

None, because it’s a Mount Barker service? Stirling still has the half hourly 81/82. Why should people wishing to travel from the city to Mt Barker be made to sit through every town and hamlet in the hills? If the X82 operates 5:45am-10pm, I will be relived that common sense has finally prevailed. T...

Re: 752 bus route

No real surprise - did a small survey of the 3:30, 4:30, 5:30 services and all were next to empty (2 pax max).

A much simpler system for the Southern Vales is planned, reducing 10+ variations to just 4.

Does anyone know what the 2571 from Lonsdale depot is doing up in the hills? Saw it running an 883 this morning.
Most likely being serviced at Aldgate. A number of Lonsdale buses have been serviced at Aldgate in the last few months including 2585, 2522, 2571, and an NL202

2530 from ONCA covered a Mt Barker shift tonight, as 3204 broke down in Mawson Lakes on a 222. Only involved doing a T840 but was an unusual sight nonetheless

I assume it will have to do a shift tomorrow to get it home

Re: 752 bus route

I have not previously used the 752 service, however I do intend to try out a few services before it is removed

I wonder whether it would be better used if it went through to Seaford/Noarlunga? From memory it used to a few years ago
