Don't know which timetable 281 will be appearing on, TP hasn't had the online timetables updated yet. Yes, if a route is not numbered in the 7XX (or 6XX for that matter) range, it is just about certain to get a printed TT.

Just saw from the Transperth timetables site, there's time and route changes on 22 March 2020 and 5 April 2020. (Note: the 5 April changes had been postponed until further notice, so it will be the same timetable until Transperth announces)

From 22 March 2020
  • Routes 178, 179: The timed stop point is changed from near Armstrong Road to near Manning Road, and no time changes are made
From 5 April 2020
  • Route 512 and 514 to Murdoch is to be changed using the Murdoch Drive (Roe Highway northbound) on ramp, no time changes are made
  • Trip reduction for routes 334, 336 and 337
  • Minor time changes for routes 335, 353 and 355
  • Additional trip for route 355 to Whitfords on weekdays
  • Additional trips for route 955 on weekdays, several trips are extending from Bassendean to Morley for the full route, also have earlier starting times and later ending time for weekends as well

Sun 05 Apr

From Sunday 5 April services in the Ellenbrook area will undergo changes as follows:
  • Routes 334, 336 and 337 will undergo time changes and run fewer services due to poor patronage.
  • Routes 335, 353 and 355 will undergo time changes.
  • Route 955 will undergo time changes with additional services running between Bassendean Station and Morley Bus Station.
Transperth website wrote: Routes 512 and 514 - Route Changes

Mon 06 Apr

From early April, routes 512 and 514 will undergo a route change in Murdoch due to the completion of the Murdoch Dr/Roe Hwy connection.

This change is likely to occur on Monday 6 April, however, it is dependent on the road works in the area being complete.

This change will primarily affect passengers travelling to and from Murdoch Pines Estate or Lakeside Recreation Centre.

View the maps to see where these services will run.

The following stops will be affected as part of this change:

The nearest alternative stop is Stop 27950 on (Murdoch Dr before Farrington Rd)
  • Stop 28058 (Farrington Rd before Murdoch Dr) will move approximately 100m towards Baker Ct[/lust]
Timetables updated:
  • Bus Timetable 9

And there will be an additional 374 in the afternoon from Mercy Coll. to Landsdale Farm from Monday 23rd March.

The 282/283 timetable hasn't even been updated to reflect the removal of one trip. I wonder if the date on the website is wrong and the 741 is still operating for now?

Does this mean Roe 8 opens as of next month?

More like Roe 7.5 ideally it should be Roe 8 unfortunately politics and a vocal minority of protesters got in the way of progress. You can’t access Roe highway from Farrington road or Bibra Drive just more rat running through Karel Ave. I recently drove through Murdoch and it’s a complete disaster, the 3 point traffic controlled roundabout at Bibra Drive won’t achieve much. I’m on the fence about how well the high street upgrade will relieve things and there’s been no talk of the outer harbour at all period. $100 million for a road project that won’t fix congestion or make any real improvements to public transport mainly buses it’s a disgrace.

The route 376 (Sheet 2) also have the same map misdrawn which was re-released on the 15/03/2020 timetable, while the routes 512 and 514 (sheet 5) were pre-drawn their routes per 12/04/2020 changes.

I too thought their altered version wasn't ideal, but given Farrington Road is already chockas, adding more traffic to it or Bibra Drive/Progress Drive/Hope Rd as a result of improved Roe Highway access would be undesirable. Am guessing this link will ease issues experienced in the Murdoch area as a result of the lack of direct link to the freeway & Roe Highway.
Access to Roe Highway from Bibra/North Lake and surrounds will be an ongoing issue until such a time Roe8 etc are constructed (if they are at all).

It's unfortunate buses will be somewhat inconvenienced by this - I personally don't see it taking the same amount of time, but we shall see. The 512 passes directly by Murdoch University and could easily service it, and be of significantly greater use to the surrounding community than servicing those two extra stops around Murdoch Chase.
Example - If you lived around Coolbellup - you have the time taken to access your bus stop, a 10-15min ride on a 512 to Murdoch Station, waiting time, then a 204-207 or 998 to the Uni. It is FAR quicker to walk.

Transperth Website wrote:William St - Bus Stand Changes
Sun 24 May
From Sunday 24 May there will be a change to the location of stops along William St in Perth. These stops will be relocated along William St towards the river due to safety concerns at the Murray St intersection.

This change will affect routes 41, 42, 48, 55, 60, 66, 67, 68, 950, Blue and Red CATs.

These routes, except for Route 60, will continue to service the same stop numbers. Route 60 will now service William St - Stand 1.

Download a map of the new stop locations.

Having witnessed (and experienced) the struggle encountered by the 30, 31 and 34 as they try to access and depart their William St. stands, I hope there are plans to improve (prioritise) bus movements along William St. to better-cope with the relocated stands. I suppose the easiest solution would be blocking right turns onto the Terrace, but that still leaves the conga-line of cars trying to get onto the freeway, which usually block buses from the Terrace turning onto William St., too.

Seems likely the route 387 had re-introduced that portion again as it was run previously and had been withdrawn a time later.
