January 2019 service changes

Postby hillsbus » Tue Dec 18, 2018 3:37 pm

Will there be any service changes in late January e.g. to reflect the Government's cost saving measures or will these occur later in 2019?

Thanks Jibb.

I'd say Sunday 27 January would be the likely day?

I presume it will largely be alot of late night services that will be cut or are there others that will need to be cut?

I would assume that this would ultimately see less shifts for the companies to cover, and hence less buses required overall, enabling more premature retirements.

The only reason less buses would be required is if they cut services in peak hours,which I doubt.

How is this State Government going to increase public transport patronage and decrease traffic congestion and travel times if all they are doing is cut cut cut funding for public transport?
Next station is Victoria Square. Change here for all trains.

Many years ago we had a good mix of city based routes and cross suburban routes nowadays its mainly city based, thats ok during peak hours but at other times people mainly just want to go from suburb to suburb.

361, good route but too infrequent
for a busy road, deviating this route via Dry Creek Station will allow connections with train services allowing people to travel via public transport rather than driving and it will help reduce congestion between Port Adelaide and Salisbury.

300 is a good route but at nights and weekends its too infrequent

100 is a good route but at nights and weekends its non existent or too infrequent

No route between Port Adelaide and Brighton via Tapleys Hill Road, a half hourly service will help reduce congestion along this corridor

J7/J8, good route but too infrequent for people wanting to get to the airport by bus, non existent on weekends

101, good route but too infrequent, no service on weekends

190 between Glenelg and Mitcham is too infrequent on weekends

320, good route but its duplicating with the G20 and G21 between Flinders Hospital and Aberfoyle Hub

Most of the northern and southern routes are hourly on weekends which doesn't make sense as many hospitality venues are busy on weekends

In the hills towns like Birdwood, Gumeracha, Lobethal and Woodside are popular on weekends and summer nights when events like the Lobethal Christmas Lights or Oakbank Races but there is no bus services
Next station is Victoria Square. Change here for all trains.

Agree about a bus service between Port Adelaide and Glenelg, in fact it should run from Noarlunga Centre servicing NC Train , also Brighton Station. Brighton Road traffic is horrendous in peak hours and is pretty busy at off-peak times.I am sure if there was a frequent service along these roads it would take some of this traffic off the roads.

There is probably a need for a service from at least Glenelg to Salisbury as there are lots of workers who live in the southern inner and outer suburbs who work out Salisbury(and even Mawson Lakes) who maybe could be enticed off the roads if there was a decnt bus service.

Regrettfully DPTI don't seem to e interested in trying anything new.

My experience with Tapleys Hill Rd is that the traffic starts to build up at around 0600; possibly a little earlier. Any service running along the length of Tapleys Hill Rd would need to start around 0500 or even slightly earlier to be a viable alternative to driving.

Brighton Road is very similar-at 600am in the morning traffic is very heavy, probably at least 1/3 turn off at Sir Donald Bradman Drive headed to the Airport.

Brighton Road traffic is horrendous in peak hours and is pretty busy at off-peak times.I am sure if there was a frequent service along these roads it would take some of this traffic off the roads.

Taking this service to Noarlunga Centre would be duplicating the train line. It certainly needs connections to the train line - possibly Hove. There isn't a lot of patronage around the Lonsdale Rd area that isn't serviced well by trains and feeder buses, so I'd probably have the service terminate at Marion Centre (which provides other bus connections) or continue via Main South Rd or some other route through the outer southern suburbs which would help to provide cross suburban services. I'd even go beyond Port Adelaide and right up to Osborne. It would need to run early enough to be useful for workers as others have mentioned. This could connect with (or work in tandem with) a route from Mawson Lakes to Port Adelaide and Osborne.

A similar service along the coast would also be useful. The 300 should operate expanded hours, or a new service partly servicing Tapleys Hill Rd and partly servicing the beaches north of Henley Beach would be beneficial, especially Semaphore which has fairly poor services, and extremely limited services from Port Adelaide. Perhaps some of the short 300 trips between Marion Centre and Glenelg could be reduced to offset some of the costs of this new service.
$2,500 fines for vehicles illegally using red Bus Only lanes - could cut the state's debt real quickly if they extended that to regular Bus Lanes!
