Service Changes for nRAH

Postby 2MSJ » Wed Aug 09, 2017 9:41 am

Found this on the Adelaide Metro website:

http://www.adelaidemetro.com.au/Announcements/News/Public-transport-options-for-the-new-Royal-Adelaide-Hospital wrote:Shuttle bus service
A new bus shuttle service on North Terrace will connect the old and new Royal Adelaide Hospital sites from next month operating every: 30 minutes between 7.15am and 7.15pm weekdays
8.15am to 6.15pm weekends
Until January 2018 when the AdeLINK City Tram Extension is due to be completed which will be within the FREE city tram zone that runs between the South Terrace tram stop and the Entertainment Centre. All Adelaide Metro Trams are wheelchair, scooter and assistance dog friendly.


Other public transport changes:
Re-routing the primary Hills bus route 864 to operate in loop from Currie Street to the new hospital via Morphett Street and North Terrace. Services from the city will commence from the new hospital at stop Y1 North Terrace and proceed via Currie Street from Sunday 3 September
C1 services and C2 O-Bahn services will be re-routed from Sunday 3 September. These will travel via their normal route along Grenfell/Currie streets and then via Morphett Street and North Terrace, stopping opposite the hospital at bus stop Y1 North Terrace. Services from the city will commence from stop Y1 North Terrace and travel via West Terrace, Currie Street and then via normal route
New bus stops will be installed on Currie Street and North Terrace to service the hospital
Updated bus timetables are being finalised and will be available soon

Let's hope that temporary shuttle does not get too tangled up with the tram construction works - more 25km/hr speed zones, just what we need in Adelaide!

These names sound as though they date from the days when there were two digits and a letter for each bus route (such as the 155 being a 15E (hypothetically). I can't believe that they haven't been updated.

However, they're probably easier to recognise than what a 3 digit number would be (say 983 (a 98C for example)). I guess there's no real need to fix what isn't broken after all.

C stands for clockwise, A stands for anticlockwise. So labelling it the 97A at least conveys the information that it's anticlockwise (not that there's a clockwise version of the 97 by the sounds of it, but at least it's consistent with 98A, 98B, 99A, 99C).

And no the B10C doesn't run clockwise, that C stands for City terminating. LOL.

And when the C is a prefix, e.g. C1/C2... :lol:

For those new at the game this was a variation of the J1/J2 but terminates in the city, and with no connections or other similarities to the J1/J2 any more there really is no reason why the C1/C2 "numbering" should remain.

Then there are also the 100C, 167C, 200C, 300C, 750C, 751C and 865C. These 'C' suffixes don't mean clockwise or 'terminates city'! :lol:
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.

Not to go off topic, but what does the 'B' in B10 stand for, then? I hope it's less obvious than 'Bus'.

Will people who wish to go to nRAH from Grenfell and Currie Streets be able to board C1/C2/864 buses?
Will C1G/C1T buses go to/from new RAH or only C!/C2?

I would guess yes and yes, just like all J1, J1A & J1H detour via the old RAH now. And there are no C1T/G go to the city, all are called C1.
What about N1 & N864 :lol: I guess no.

Seems odd that the 864 is one of the routes singled out for being diverted as it doesnt serve the old RAH

It might be to give all three service providers a share of the additional kilometres - TT get the 97A; LCB get extensions to C1/C2 and SL get extensions to the 864.

New C1, C2, 861 and 864 timetables were released as well with above mentioned ones together this noon, but now disappear.
Luckily I downloaded all of them :lol:
C1, C2 and 864 series would be extended to new RAH as well as N864 but not N1

Stop B1 on West Terrace (adjacent McDonalds) doesn't appear on either map. All other West Tce services in that section service it.

New terminus for the 864 - stop B2 West Tce. Must be a new stop. It's odd that the 864 is extended but not the 863 which is essentially a short-working. Higher frequency to the RAH during interpeak than peak with all the various Hills routes that operate peak times!
It looks like stop Y1 North Tce is further east than it was before for route C1/C2.

With all services on the C1-C2 services to/from stop Y1 (excluding a few C1T's in the weekday evening peak from Hindmarsh Square) there is will be a good service to/from Currie and Grenfell Streets,and as I have said previously much quieter Clarendon Street terminus for O-Bahn buses.

Compared with the versions I downloaded last Thursday, the only 2 differences are the stop locations near nRAH and no extension of N864, no changes in all other times.
