The next 3 Perth contracts, which are currently out for tender, are Marmion, Joondalup and Claremont, while the Geraldton Regional contract is also up for grabs. The Geraldton contract commences on the 1st of January 2020, while the 3 Perth ones are commencing on the 12th of January 2020 (from memory).

A-Series Misc. Announcements

Postby Zidanehartono » Sat May 18, 2019 9:41 am

Does anyone know other announcements that the A-Series trains makes?

I know these ones:
1.When you hold the doors open:Please do not hold the doors open, failure to release them is an offence and can lead to refusal of travel.
2.When you bring your bike during peak times:Can't remember what it said.

They also make: (Noticeably on the Armadale C pattern, on the express section between Claisebrook and Oats St) "Please refrain from consuming food and drink on the train."
(As it approaches Perth Stn) "This is Perth, please mind the gap."

Yeah besides that but i'm referring to seldomly used announcements or automated announcements that starts with a ding-dong-ding like driver spoken announcements.

On approach to Sherwood towards Armadale, they have "Please mind the gap between the train and the platform, as the platform level may vary" (or something close to that).

You also hear this one as it goes over the Roe Hwy flyover. However, it's not heard on the all stops version (aka Football service)

Does anyone know why do we need a bus stop supervisor at ALMOST every stop of Stadium Special 661 in the CBD? Why don't they just appear at dedicated stops on St Georges Terrace and near the Causeway?

Be interesting to see what comes out of it. I know First Group are trying to get their foot in the door in Australia. And Ventura Buslines here in Melbourne have for the first time attempted to branch out and tendered for Adelaide contracts. Unsure if they tendered for Perth. Transit Systems have proven themselves since there start in Perth in 1996. In turn they have proven themselves as a leader in the industry and their rapid global expansion in only 23 years is impressive to say the least.

Is there anyone who has knowledge of who actually tendered that can give some insight?

The Geraldton contract closed for tender on the 21st of May, and awarded 30th of August (no delays expected) to commence 1st Jan 2020. The 3 Perth ones close on the 11th of July, and are to be awarded on the 4th of November. The Perth contracts however have been amended to start a week later on the 19th of January, 2020.

Work to replace the 109 Hamilton street bridge in Subiaco has been a success and is expected to reopen to cars in September, main roads and PTA will remove the remaining 2 ageing wooden bridges on the Fremantle line at Congdon street in Swanbourne and Eric street in Cottesloe over the next couple of years subject to availability of funding, the Congdon street bridge replacement is in the planning stage and will allow for 6car trains to stop at Swanbourne station it’s unclear if platform lengthening will be included in the project scope which can be viewed at the below link

Hi
Does anyone have any details regarding the buses that replaced the Fremantle Line from 1979-83? I.e. route, frequency, numbers, fleet etc.
Cheers

The link will take you to a page which has each fleet number primarily used, and the pics should have the route number in it. Frequency wise though, I don't know where you could find that.

I asked for the route and numbers earlier in this thread, and this is the (rather useful and nice) reply I got: http://www.busaustralia.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=85338&start=25#p1031520
