O-Bahn extension ruled out

The State Government has today ruled out any possibility of extending the O-Bahn from Tea Tree Plaza to Golden Grove.
The Government said the option would destroy too many trees and cost too much money.
It would lead to the demolition of 41 homes as well as 290 trees.

Re: [Sept/Oct 2020] SA transport observations

Due to a shortage of buses and drivers a number of coach companies are being used to provide GA1-2-3 services from today. Kanga Coaches has quite a few buses out including off-peak runs.

Re: [Sept/Oct 2020] SA transport observations

I doubt that Torrens Transit or Busways or Southlink have sufficent spare buses to enable a full shutdown of the Gawler Line.
With many buses out of service ,they barely have sufficent buses to cover am and pm peaks!

Morphettville Depot currently holds 177 buses in the yard.
It was built for a capacity of 250 buses.
