Re: Private Bus Observations 2021

Meanwhile... AnyTrip was reporting that the 0020 T80 to Smithfield was done by a B12BLEA, as was the 2320 T80 ex Parramatta.

Re: $90 million upgrade for Stirling bus bridge

Excuse me while I try and figure out the message above... Perth will almost never see double deckers again. We do not have the high capacity, long distance routes that other cities have, like Sydney or Adelaide. Perth is too sparsely populated for any usefulness in deckers, however that suits artics...

Re: PTA / Transperth Service Changes - 2021

I find it somewhat disappointing that the chosen option for route 233 in Piara Waters was the direct Armadale Rd option, rather than the Greywacke/Aspiri/Fanshawe option. Given that Armadale Rd is practically highway-grade through Piara Waters, there's no chance for a bus stop in that area. It mean...

Even if it did (which I VERY highly doubt it did), people (like us) would not have a clue, and the people in the know would not be allowed to say due to the company's social media policies.

Re: $90 million upgrade for Stirling bus bridge

I doubt they will terminate at Cannington - the main use for the 202 and 203 (at least those two) is the connection it offers for East Cannington residents to go shopping at Carousel.

Some of you seem to forget that a windscreen, the only thing between a driver and an airborne obstacle, is incredibly hard to break being layered with 2 panes of glass... Although your 'tally' is nothing to brag about, as it is still technically a crime to smash a car window. I'd suggest keeping it ...

AnyTrip is also stating there is a Mercedes Benz OC500LE with a CB80 body currently doing a 178 to Cromer Heights (9:49am trip ex Wynyard), which is also showing as the operator being State Transit Northern Beaches.

Re: STA Observations 2020

Looks like 3851 did a 200 from Bondi Junction at 7:05am, a 200 from Chatswood at 8:18am, and your 200 from Bondi Junction at 9:40am (thanks to AnyTrip), with AnyTrip also stating the operator as State Transit Eastern Suburbs. Don't entirely know if that's useful info though.

Kalamunda, as far as I know, has never done a 380. Welshpool did them before Redcliffe opened, but since then I don't think it has happened.

Pasha, 2016's been back at SR since May.

Other observations - SR's 3007 and 3026 seem to be getting more use compared to their previous permanent shifts, as both have been seen at Armadale Station around 5:30pm and 6:30pm in the last few days.
