After reading many of the new timetables on the Admet website, I noticed that route 548 has been shunted onto its own timetable with route 591A/C. I think that route 548 has been shunted around so many times since its creation, first on the G30/G40/G4/548 timetable then the C1/C2/548 timetable and now its with route 591. I think it made sense for routes C2 and 548 to be on the same timetable, due to the through-running, and now just to move the 591 onto the C1/C2/548 timetable, because routes C2/548/591 all operate in the Greenwich area.

Notice that the new G10 timetable has had additional services added including 2 later Sunday night services(1145pm,1215am) as well as an early morning 'after midnight" service at 1245am,which begs the question-as this is obviously a well patronised service ,why doesn't Adelaide Metro include the G10 on its "real" After Midnight services?

Only a quick guess without thinking about it too much, probably to do with the N224 operating on the next corridor over (Main North Rd).

If you think about the southern suburbs, After Midnight buses operate on Goodwood Rd & South Rd but not the corridors either side – Marion Rd, Winston Ave or Unley Rd.
Time to get bus priority and tram priority through the city and suburbs.
Time to police bus lanes which are used by arrogant car drivers.
Time to work for better timetables and better connections.

What I noticed, in comparison to other places, is the apparent complete lack of suggestions of alternative routes ( if there are any ), for the routes being completely abolished "to re-deploy resources".

Since the introduction of the new timetables and rosters Light-City buses are using more Artics on weeknight services right up to last buses.Also more O-Bahn Artics and rigids are being used on Non O-Bahn routes in off-peak times.
