A LOT of artics running on the 950, even into the evening... and yes, I know it's because of the UWA extension... plus the occasional artic on the 67/68 & 48, if I recall correctly. 2. ...

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

It is definitely repairable - 2441 and 1850 were involved in an incident 3 years ago, both suffered more damage than 2033 yet both were returned to service.

Re: VOLVO’S FIRST ELECTRIC BUSES IN AUSTRALIA DUE MID-2021

Dynamic braking is standard on electric buses. Drivers have to be re-indoctrinated that it's actually OK to use the brake as much as possible rather than a retarder! Yes well aware not just BEV buses but cars too the single pedal operation will take some getting used to for the drivers you don’t re...
