Re: CBD & South East Light Rail

Considering how packed these services are these days at UNSW, how can they ensure social distancing is possible? If social distancing is not possible, if one person has Coronavirus, then it will risk the entire NSW into Stage 4 lockdown, especially when we are facing the more contagious UK strain. I...

Re: Extra Covid 19 services

The face mask mandate only applies to Central Coast, Blue Mountains and Wollongong areas. So I wonder from which station on the South Coast Line and Central Coast and Newcastle Line will this mask mandate does not apply, as they would have been outside of Central Coast (i.e. in Hunter) and in South ...

Re: CBD & South East Light Rail

Caught the tram to and from Randwick and wow, this thing was absolutely packed. With, you guessed, UNSW students. The travel time was also commendable. 17 minutes from Central to Randwick. I wouldn’t agree with Mayor Laxale’s very recent comment of “the slowest tram in the world” - its actually via...

Re: December Bus Changes - Northern Beaches and Lower North Shore

I wonder whether STA and TSA can investigate whether they can update their rear desto font on newer buses, so that when the bus is running an express service, like 180X or 461X, the font of the bus route can fill the desto better? I believe Hillsbus has done a good job on 610X etc, and other bus ope...

Re: The death of Metrobus.

The death of metrobus is simply an act of bastardry by the current NSW government. Yet Metrobus is also a political stunt caused by the previous Labor government due to their mismanagement of bus services across Sydney. If the current government can come out with solution that maintains the service...

Re: Private Bus Observations 2021

It seems Transit Systems has printed and delivered some branded face masks yo its drivers.

I hope I can get one if they do decide to give away as a merchandise.

Re: STA Observations 2021

Perhaps this should be the last STA Observations thread as STA is due to be privatised by the end of the year?
Perhaps we should discuss what observations thread is required for buses going forward.

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...
