Also, the last 502 is being operated by a Wingfield bus for whatever reason. I've seen these do this run on weekends, but it's odd to see one on this run late on a weekday night.


Thats normal since the timetable changes, a friend of mine based at Wingfield drove the last 502 last Thursday night, it may have been him again tonight
You got a real flash bus, but my one's flash one, eh
And I believe that my one's faster than yours, Mr Bond

I contacted Adelaide Metro regarding that yesterday so they fixed it on their website.

761 and 1751 are still out of action after several months in the workshops!

1751 is finally back in service this afternoon.

761 was back in service this morning.

Checked on transit times to see what's doing the 2015 228 from the city just out of curiosity. The vehicle id says 2223 of all things.

Looks like there's gonna be a lot of folks left behind!

2402 is doing the 2115 one.

Just noticed something equally odd using TT. 2219 is doing a 228 into the city. I haven't heard of a Southlink North div NL going into the city on a weekend (let alone a Saturday night) for years

I believe its up to the driver what bus he/she can take out. As long as passengers can get from a to b , also IMO it's more safe to walk down the back stair of a NL202 then those steep stairs on the scanias especially when you have passengers on board that are drunk.
Next station is Victoria Square. Change here for all trains.

Not sure on dispatch with Southlink, as far as I know with Torrens and Transfield your bus is allocated "written down' for the fshift, sometimes if you ask whoever does dispatch nicely the driver can get a certain bus for their shift. etc 542 or 2746.

3401 is working the 1335 city bound T843 currently. .. unless I have missed something we finally have a weekend double decker in service... should be returning to mount barker on the 1440 outward T843 service also.

That's strange, yesterday (Saturday 28/02) I saw 3310 on the 1240 arrival on route T843. Also saw tram 109 is all dressed up for the fringe, with lights all over it.
First person on 822, 865 (2016 re-route).
Last person on 867, 868.
