Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

I know that the Scania L94UA, MAN NG313F and Iveco Citelis CNG buses have the old livery. I've never been on the articulated CNG buses but I believed that the seats are outdated and needed to be refurbished at the end of the year. Do you know when will these three units be refurbished?

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

Last week I saw TP2378 (with the Airport livery) operating the Route 34. It was very strange why the bus with the special livery operating the Route 34. Normally buses with the airport livery operate on Airport routes including Route 40, 380 and 935.

Well done on the milestone. It is a great era.
I feel that the TP2974 will go to Transdev but which depot will it go to?

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

This afternoon, I noticed 2020 operating Route 990F from Perth to Mirrabooka. Since Swan took over Joondalup contract this year, Joondalup/Wangara used the route. But Karrinyup depot decided to use a CNG bus for the Route 970.

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

Re: Let's fix Channel Nine

Today show could be fixed by getting rid of Tony Jones. He is unwatchable when he is on TV for these reasons—too opinionated, spouts a lot of crass comments on TV and condescending. His interview towards Japanese tennis player Naomi Osaka was cringeworthy and asked a lot of lewd questions on TV. Nao...

What annoys me on Channel 9 is having to put up with Eddie McGuire on TV. I cannot watch his show, Hot Seat anymore—his constant dribble from him was enough to turn my TV off. Hot Seat is unwatchable now—the same format over and over again. Some people have stopped watching his show because he kept ...

Re: WA Transport General Discussion & Questions - 2018

But with that said, a few B7s (the early 22xx and 23xx in particular) are in pretty terrible condition already so it wouldn't surprise me if they went in a little earlier, but probably not before 2020 since there are still ~250 OC500s left to go. I noticed that there were Mercedes Benz Oc500LE Dies...
