More buses were transferred after the M20 decision.

Not sure if this counts as an "observation", but I saw a MAN DD in B-Line livery outbound on Alison Rd yesterday morning. I wasn't able to catch the desto/display.

I'm usually at work on Alison Rd in the morning but this is the first time I've seen a DD. Are they scheduled to do 891's?

The transport Minster announced extension of deckers serving more routes, so I think they were testing it for this area.

I think the Deckers aren’t a bad idea for a route like the 891, with one pick up/set down location. I don’t know if they would be the best for regular route services though.

The UNSW services are peaky, so mostly need buses that can be utilised elsewhere at other times.

And it is intended that the trams will carry most of the load from next year.

Yes the UNi bus routes are scheduled to be abolished when light rail comes along.

Maybe driver training, teaching them how to avoid trees?

There was a B-line DD in the Randwick depot on Monday, not sure why.

Don't worry most along the light rail route have been cut remember all the protests. Though power poles & narrow lanes are an issue. I can't think of Randwick depot route that is suitable for double deckers that aren't uni routes the 400 maybe 370 is fairly long but has it's issues.
