Good to see. The large number of big ticket events at Bellerive this season has set the scene for a more sensible transport culture surrounding such events. Any word on patronage levels for these services this season?

It will be interesting to see if similar arrangements will be in place for the AFL this winter. Would also be good to see services to DEC for the big events there ... eg - isn't there another title fight in March?

Loadings have been good I've been told, not actually been on the service.
Wanted to get on Sunday's lot but due to my crappy early shifts am unable to :x

The DEC gets the 15/16's when required - surely that counts as a service? :lol:

ONLY when requested by DEC :roll: O'Driscoll probably doing bulk of Boundary Riders. Have been every other game. Can't see why WE can't do it all, wouldn't be THAT difficult :roll:

Just as well you put the laugh after that comment. A service that finishes before 7pm is hardly a service for night events!

But we DO... it's just that most of the time (ie - weekdays) the service is subcontracted out. It's still a Metro service! :?

Tell that to the PUBLIC. All they see is another operator, so to THEM, it's NOT Metro doing the Boundary Rider. (so to me, and that means jack :!: Metro are not getting value for their advertising of the service :roll: )

It's school VACATION :!: Why NOT :?: The vehicles ARE THERE :!: It's like the Cruise Ships. Only need (2) and THEY, could be the (2) UniBus buses (as UniBus(es) are not required for 95% of the Cruise Ship season)
