Been awhile since anyone visited this post. I vaguely remember 102/103/104 through routed from Freo to Salter Point. Anyone got TTs?

No timetables but I think those routes ran in early - mid '90s.

Ah the old 102/3/4.... These ran from around the early 90s to the early 00s.

The 102 ran Como-Fremantle via the city, and both the 103 and 104 ran from Salter Point to Fremantle, also via the city. They all shared a common route from Canning Highway over the Causeway, down St Georges Tce, QEII and Stirling Hwy to Freo. For much of the day on weekdays, alternate 102 and 103's ran down Stirling Hwy with a 20 minute off peak headway. As was common at the time, the 104 was an after hours combination of the other two routes, running at night and on weekends.

The 102 was split sometime around 1999, with the 32 replacing the 102 between the city and Como, whilst the 103 continued as a through route until being also split in the city sometime after 2002. As with so many through routes, timekeeping during the peaks could be a bit tricky. At the time of splitting the 102, it was still worthwhile keeping the 103 as a through route due to the economics of the depots operating it in those days.

IIRC, for a short time the 32's city terminus was on Kings Park Road near Havelock Street, which had been a busier terminus in the pre-City Busport days but hadn't been used as such for a few years.

Thanks VL6MT. Plenty of memories for us both on at least one of those timetables I imagine....

I'm trying to remember if the 32 West Perth terminus was later shifted to the 33's old Kings Park terminus for a while. I certainly remember intending to move it there, and alternate it with 33's, but can't remember if it actually happened. Another fairly short lived experiment was extending every second 32 to Booragoon in the off peak, but this wasn't particularly successful.

No I think the 32 (KP) must be a strong residual idea you had back in the day AB. Memories? The 72 in a linc at Cott and of course the 200!
I still recall seeing a 32 Booragoon ext arrow on the corner of Canning & Thelma somewhere or thereabouts

Taking out Linc's on the 72 remains my favourite memory of driving in Perth... and although I managed a few artics on the 200, I mainly remember balmy nights on the 200 in 11xx Renaults....

This isn't my pic - I'm on the other side of the lens - but it highlights one of the reasons why a Linc bus on the 72 was good fun.

That 32/33 concept will have to be added to the pile of ideas that never quite made it... The 32 was - and is - one of the very few South Perth routes that didn't seem to need a ridiculous number of turns to get a very short distance. My strongest memory of the 32 is waiting out the morning peak at the Como terminus, with a recalcitrant 1047 that wouldn't start - back in the days of 1047 wearing a different Lotteries livery every year.

if I can add to that... my first 2 days out of driving school in 1992 was clippers... third day was ... take co-driver AND artic (711 it was), and do... 72, Curtin Ave Cottesloe to Beaton St Wilson
my first paying passenger ever, was first stop in Broome St, after Salvado St

the Salvado St hump was always (and still is - even if its in the car), a favourite, as was the Adie Crt loop

I was driving to Toodyay on the weekend and passing through Gidgegannup. I recalled a trial route 336 years ago from Midland. Only lasted 3 months I think.

I remembered a Bus route that serviced around Neerabup back in the days and I cannot remember what was the route number. That bus route serviced between Joondalup Stn and Neerabup.

Shoudy, could perhaps be the old 490 (before Clarkson station opened) that came down Wanneroo Rd and Joondalup Drive to Joondalup Station?

I had a terrible memory but yes it was. That 490 from Clarkson Stn travelled to 2 Rocks via Wanneroo Rd (where Marmion Av wasn't extended until 2008). There was a bus route via Carabooda, Eglinton and Yanchep National Park.
I also remembered the 155 that traveled from Freo to Cannington via Garden City, Leavh Hwy, High Rd, Parts of Lynwood and to Cannington. That bus was operated by Southern Coast Transit.

The most fun I ever had on a bus was on a tour a few years ago when I was in a very old Volvo artic (B58 Brown Bomber I think it was) in the seat just behind the turntable going from Scarborough to Hillarys up the coast road. So many hills and bumps and such great feelings going over them all...

Hmm... Honestly can't remember. I know the 404 was 277... But is the 403 the old 276 or 278? Any old TTs?

403 was renumbered from 276 (although has since had route changes). 278 was the after-hours route.

I do have a 276, 277, 278 timetable from the mid 1980s but I'd have to dig in the archives in my cupboard to scan and post

I'll have to go for a wonder to see if it's still there but i'm 99% sure there is a yellow 276 direction sign mounted on a pole somewhere on or around Royal St in Tuart Hill
