Re: STA Observations - July to December 2018

They are not true Ivecos. They are a badge engineered job as a result of take over of International Harvester in Victoria. They are an amalgam of boring soulless American sourced components with an Iveco label slapped on with a tube of Bostick liquid nails from the nearest Bunnings outlet. Are Bunn...

Re: New coach services between Sydney and Goulburn

Perhaps its all because NSW regional services are compulsory booked seats and require payment when booking, so Opal isn't needed.

Re: Route/Timetable changes 23rd and 30th September 2018

Looking at the 400 timetable there aren't many trips that are listed as Wheelchair accessible Mon-Fri. Could P 14.5m buses be used and W Scania L113CRB & R Scania L113CRLs both non wheelchair accessible. . Don't get you hopes up! I input a request yesterday, suggesting that it was an error and poin...

Re: STA Observations - July to December 2018

I was waiting for a 310 at Eastgardens this afternoon, which just managed to limp to the stop from the standing area. After some fiddling the operator climbed out, went to the the side, came back and it started. 'Someone turned off the gas' was the comment.

Re: 2017 Train & Bus timetable changes

This is the SMH these days: attack selective schools on the odd days, and dig something up about Sydney Trains on the even days. Just bear in mind that the SMH has been reporting for much of the year that TfNSW has major IT issues and that this was demonstrated to be correct last Saturday morning.
