Possibly for 2082 and 2085, but 1615 wouldn't be unusual.

Swan picked up some Circle Route work to assist Transdev this afternoon.

PATH Transit have sent 2760 and 2761 to assist Transdev with their evening operations in the Fremantle Contract. There are conflicting reports as to whether they are doing Service Runs or are assisting with Rail Replacement Duties that Transdev have this evening.

As for refurbs, up to and including 1952 are back from refurb and in service at Rockingham, 1953, 54 and possibly 1955 are all away.

And despite being one of (if not the) oldest pre-refurb OCs in Perth now, the three dolphins RCCTS1-3 are all still in service. I often wonder what the plan is with these.

PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2018

Postby shinjiman » Sat Oct 20, 2018 9:53 pm

Today there's 4 Swan buses doing for the specials to Elmar's in the Valley.

623 Ellenbrook Central - Elmar's in the Valley via Gnangara Road and West Swan Road
623 Elmar's in the Valley - Ellenbrook Central via West Swan Road, Gnangara Road, Henley Brook Avenue and The Permonade

624 Guildford Station - Elmar's in the valley via Meadow Street and West Swan Road
624 Elmar's in the Valley - Guildford Station via West Swan Road, Meadow Street, Guildford Road, West Road and Guildford Road (In my opinion it should bun via West Swan Road, Benara Road, Lord Street and Guildford Road should be a better option as no U turn is needed)

Just only remember only one of the bus was 2491 on Saturday.

On Sunday 2487 and 2491 were running as 623, 2530 and 2553 were running as 624.
