More timetables picked up from Sita on Friday:

404

431

432

455

All have bus & train times effective 8 May 2011 v.1 (Apr 11)

The only Sita timetables not being reprinted are those for the 402 & 472 as they do not contain train times.

Melbourne Bus Link's timetable for Route 600, 922, 923 (Southland SC to St Kilda) has been reprinted "Bus times effective 10 October 2010. Train times effective 8 May 2011. v.1 (Mar 11)"

Train connections at Sandringham are now shown for all trips, and not just Weekday AM times towards St Kilda and Weekday PM times towards Southland.

A number of minor corrections have been made to bus times, timing points & route descriptions.

Notably, the last trip from St Kilda to Cheltenham on a Saturday is now shown to run 15 minutes later at 24:17. Apparently this was changed way back in November 2008 but wasn't changed in the printed or online TT at the time.

The timetable also reflects that all services are now wheelchair accessible.

Kind Regards

Westrans Werribee.

Picked up onboard bus at Hoppers Crossing Station today (2 June).

Route 436, 437 & 446 reprinted bus timetables still dated bus times 2 May 2011, train times 8 May 2011 now in v.2 (May 11).
&
Route 442, 444, 445 & 446 also reprinted bus timetables still dated bus times 2 May 2011/train times 8 May 2011 now in v.2 (May 11).

Craig wrote:In addition to Bradley's pick-up, I have discovered some serious errors with the new booklet timetables for Westrans Werribee :twisted:

Routes 436/437/446
  • Pages 31 - 32: Old 437 Sunday timetable shown, not the new ones. Buses run up to 11 minutes earlier than shown.
  • Pages 37 - 38: Booklet timetable shows the 17:02, 17:42 & 18:22 trips operating via the Sneydes Rd deviation to serve the State Chemistry Laboratory, but the online timetable shows the 15:42, 16:22, 17:02 & 17:42 trips operating this deviation instead. :? Not very good if you rely on this deviation...
  • Pages 41 - 48: Old 446 weekend timetables are shown, not the new times. Many departures are now several minutes later, account of the reduction of travel times by around 13 minutes

All now had been corrected.

Routes 442/444/445/446
  • Pages 10 - 14: Old 442 weekend timetables are shown, not the new times. Buses towards Hoppers Crossing operate up to 12 minutes earlier than the times shown :twisted:

Had now been corrected.
  • Page 32: Booklet timetable shows first Saturday bus commencing at Thames Bvd at 07:38, while website shows bus commencing at the next timepoint, Hogans Rd at 07:43

  • Still says departed at Thames Bvd at 7.43am & http://tt.metlinkmelbourne.com.au/tt/TT ... 5ac_TP.pdf then schroll down still website says departed Thames Bvd at 7.38am
  • Pages 37 - 38: Booklet timetable shows the 17:02, 17:42 & 18:22 trips operating via the Sneydes Rd deviation to serve the State Chemistry Laboratory, but the online timetable shows the 15:42, 16:22, 17:02 & 17:42 trips operating this deviation instead. :? Not very good if you rely on this deviation...
  • Pages 41 - 48: Old 446 weekend timetables are shown, not the new times. Many departures are now several minutes later, account of the reduction of travel times by around 13 minutes

  • Also had been corrected.

    Most 850 trips now depart Dandenong Stn 2 minutes earlier than previously & a note in the timetable indicates that the 2 weekday trips each way which currently divert via Dandenong Plaza will no longer do so when (unspecified) changes to the Dandenong Hub take place.

    These timing changes took in effect in September. This is to cater for running via the new Langhorne Place Interchange (eventually). Many other routes were also adjusted at the same time, as were arrival times into Dandenong.

    They may have taken effect last September but the previous edition of the 850 timetable dated 27 September 2010/train times 10 October 2010 v1 (Sep 10) does show Dandenong departure times 2 minutes later than in the current issue so presumably they were wrong?

    Thank you for the explanation of what the Hub is.
