A little prematurely overconfident that there would be no technical glitches

Does TfNSW not know where the 526 runs to and from?

It seems also they have no idea that the quickest way from the T1 Northern Line to Olympic Park during weekdays is to change at Rhodes for 526/533. The 526 has also been running from RHODES and not just the Olympic Park Wharf to Olympic Park! Image

I noticed that when I was looking up journeys to Olympic Park in the weekend. A whole bunch of people from Nowra were going to go to an event at Olympic Park but somebody chose Sunday without realising there was trackwork (there wasn't on Saturday, bad choice!). They called the trip off because the journey involved 3 trains and 2 buses, with a 10 minute wait between each train and half an hour (!!!) between buses at Kiama, a 4.5 hour journey in total. By the time they got there they would have had about an hour before needing to head back!

I see this quite regularly - people spending 6 to 7 hours travelling to attend a 1 hour medical appointment in Sydney. The hard bench seats also add to the discomfort of those travelling with medical problems. Very third world.

hmmm... old habits die hard. What do you now call a Campbelltown via Granville train?

Usually Leppington trains are "T2 Leppington" services, and now we have "T2 South" again, after "T8 South" was created in 11/2017!

In November last year pdf bus timetables for Hillsbus, Interline and State Transit had maps included in the pdf's. I noticed today that the timetables for Hunter Valley Buses routes (not including the ex Coastal Liner routes) have also had had such maps included. Must have happened in the last two weeks as one I archived on 30 August did not have a map.

No, the maps (although just simple maps) have been included for a while now.

The bus companies that have maps such as Newcastle Transport are the best

The information on the website for today's special event services says that ECRL shuttle services between Hornsby and Chatswood will be extended to the City today. Those shuttle services were permanently extended every weekend since last year's timetable changes.

It appears for both of these instances they've just copied last year's information and forgotten that the timetable has changed since then.

Worse still they keep referring to the 526 as running between Burwood and Olympic Park Wharf... When it has been extended to Rhodes since 2016.
