Re: New Intercity Fleet Purchases/Observation

I wonder whether the new intercity fleet will be able to travel beyond 115km/h? With Northconnex, Westconnex and M6 Motorway, intercity trains will become much less attractive as it is much faster to drive than catching the train. If our train is not speeding up, then in the long term we are going t...

Re: 25/10/2020 Bus service changes - Inner West

I drove on Parra Road today during peak as well as being in the city at lunch time, I observed that 438X and 461X has pretty low patronage, yet they appear to be more frequent than 440. I also observed there are some double up of 438X and 461X, possibly due to Covid or traffic. I wonder how the Vict...

As M10 cease to exist, the artics at L can move to K until route 100 is launched and transfer over to STA Region 8?

Re: Northconnex

It seems that the promotion of Northconnex has been ramped up on Facebook lately, which I am hoping Northconnex will be able to commence operations by the end of October/early November. With that in mind, I wonder whether any CCN Railbus will operate on Northconnex instead of Pacific Highway which w...

Re: 20 YEARS SINCE THE OPENING OF THE SYDNEY OLYMPICS

20 years before, everyone flock to Sydney to see the Olympics.
20 years after, no one can leave Sydney at all due to travel ban.
I hope COVID can end soon so that we can watch Olympics live again.

Re: M6

I hope M6 will commence constructions soon and once it is complete, going to Wollongong from Sydney by car will be a lot faster than train. Currently Wollongong to Central is 70 minutes by car, potentially can cut to 50 - 55 minutes, which makes living in Wollongong a lot more attractive than in Wes...

where in Wollongong do you think there is an actual demand for these monstrosities ? 100 people who all want to go to the same place at the same time ? when your route is running every five minutes with regular buses and can't keep up with the demand, then i'd consider it. Yes. From Porter Street N...

Dion's Bus Service m/o 6965 has debut today on free bus Route 9N.

It is a Volgren bus and it appears that it is so new that it does not have any fare machine.

Due to high amount of patronage, Free Bus 22T4 operated this weekend with Articulated Buses.
As the result, some free 333 services were operated using rigid bus only.

Strangely not much news about buses that has been pre-released before 18/6/2019 for the 2019-2020 budget. Would that be because StationLink buses were redeployed to normal buses, plus the fact that buses in the Hills District will be cut later this year so they might not have a lot of buses in budg...
