Re: January 2021 timetable changes

Regretfully our Bus Contractors whom I am sure have developed good solutions for their contract areas wont get anywhere as SAPTA under Government directions won't allow major changes to happen,especially after last year's planned changes debacle.

Re: New Driver With Torrens Transit Seeks Advice & Criticism

Thats good to hear about Torrens..
They have a good reputation, of course there are always those who are unhappy.
St Agnes is the second biggest depot for Torrens Transit with over 180 buses,both O-Bahn and Non O-Bahn.
Again good luck and keep posting.

Re: January 2021 timetable changes

It would appear that the proposed timetable changes will mainly involve running times-similar to that which occurred last July.
I wonder when Adelaide Metro will sit down and properly plan timetables to eliminate excessive time wasting at key check points?
