361X timetable now available - one service AM Peak from TTP to Port Adelaide and then a return 361X at PM Peak.

Seems to take about 10 minutes off the normal run time and doesn't stop at all between TTP and Port Adelaide (deviates via North East Rd/Grand Junction Rd for a quicker route).

Northern suburbs left out again.

461 and 462 should be merged into one route. 463 running between Munno Para Shopping City and Angle Vale via Mark Oliphant College, Munno Para West and Heaslip Road. Also new 413 replacing 404 and 405 running between Salisbury and Parafield Gardens (Martins Road) via Whites Road, Kings Road, Lavender Drive, Lobelia Road, Martins Road to Parafield Gardens (Rundle Road)
Next station is Victoria Square. Change here for all trains.

If I'm not mistaken isn't the 361X Route the old Route 360? Obviously the 360 was all stops however!

Would double decker buses be ideal for routes like T721, G22 and maybe 254X?

I doubt that double deckers would fit underneath the pedestrian walkway at Noarlunga Centre interchange. They definately wouldn't fit underneath the car park at West Lakes interchange, or under the canopy at Paradise Interchange. Are there any other locations that double decker buses wouldn't be able to fit under? I think the 254X would be fine - the railway viaduct at Port Adelaide had double deck trolley buses running under it. As for the G22, I'd want to check the clearance at the Millswood subway before committing to that route.

I'd want to purposely have it lowered just so that there isn't a scheduled 'G22X' run that is almost operated by 2018 built diesel powered washing machine! But just my opinion....

New timetables are not yet available at Currie Street Info Centre or shopping centres. Awaiting to hear from Adelaide Metro when they will be available for the public.

Considering the number of Bus Timetable changes today(49)-mostly Light-City Buses, the promotion/advertising of these changes has been very low key. Previously we would see notification signs at many bus stops-this time they are relying on their website or social media to inform passengers.
Considering most timetables have lots of time changes to many of their services this is both surprising and disappointing!

There's been no update yet to myStops to reflect yesterday's timetable changes. Is this app still supported?

Last update was 20th April-I have emailed developer to find out if there is a problem and if he can have it rectified. As soon as I get an answer will post.

Regretfully it would appear that this app will no longer be supported as developer doesn't have time,money and resources. Such a shame as it was an excellent app --much better than Transit Times with fleet nos etc and was updated weekly.
Unfortunately I am not aware of any other app providing this info in Adelaide?

It appears that myStops has now been updated as of 05/05/18 7:42PM. Not a bad thing, as virtually all LCB services were not showing up beforehand.

Yes I have just noticed that myself-great news. I have emailed the developer to thank him. Don't know how much longer he will be doing it.

Is there a link to this app? Searching doesn't yield an obvious result.

Does that mean it's only available on Android phones? If so do you know if there's any apps that show fleet numbers for Apple? Thanks

As far as I know it the answer is no. It is the only app that shows fleet numbers-its the best app for Adelaide Metro services.

How does it display fleet number? I can't seem to find any fleet numbers on it...

Search for a stop, load the list of upcoming departures (be sure that the late/early/on time indicators are showing up with the service), and tap the vertical 3 dot line. It will bring up a small box which will read 'vehicle details. You then select this to view the fleet number.

Hope this works for ya.

Save a stop or stops to your favourites from map showing stops. Click on the stop,real time is either a blue square(early),green square(on time) or red square(late).
Tap the real time arrival and in top right hand corner tap and it shows fleet number , trip number, depot,Rego.chassis and seating.
Hope that helps.
