Re: Jan 2021 bus changes - STA region 7

Route 343's new northern terminus in the City will be Circular Quay, utilising the termination space vacated by the M52, since the 500X will now begin/terminate at Hyde Park.

Re: Jan 2021 bus changes - STA region 7

I am highly concerned that the discontinuation of routes like 515 and 518 will make passengers from the popular Chinese suburbs such as Eastwood and Macquarie University suffer as there will be no direct city service for them. I don't quite understand what point you're making about Macquarie Uni lo...

Re: Jan 2021 bus changes - STA region 7

How long would the route number 340 have lasted in this case? Around 12-18 months? (M40 was renumbered to 340 some time ago but forgot when). M40 got renumbered to 340 at the same time M41 and M54 were renumbered to 410 and 550, effective 28 April 2019. M60 and M61 were renumbered/consolidated into...

Re: December Bus Changes - Northern Beaches and Lower North Shore

Some things of note: Route 114 (Balmoral Beach to RNS Hospital) will inherit the split routing of route 257 around the Crows Nest area (albeit a modified routing) - RNS bound services will run via Falcon Street, Alexander Street, Burlington Street, Willoughby Road, Albany Street before returning to ...

Re: The death of Metrobus.

Much of the 2010-era Metrobus post signage that lined the route of the former M54 (now route 550) between Parramatta and Macquarie Park via Carlingford and Epping has been either: struck/damaged by errant vehicles, vandalised in the early hours of the morning, or been sporadically replaced by blue H...

Re: Jan 2021 bus changes - STA region 7

Here are my critiques: 1. So with the rerouting of the 200 to Gore Hill (the current terminus of the 320) it seems that the routes will piggyback each other from the Harbour Bridge all the way up the Pacific Hwy to Gore Hill. Even though there is duplication between 200 and 320 between North Sydney ...

The exact route paths of the new routes (100, 111, 114, etc.) are also live on the NextThere app (iOS only), despite no timetables being loaded in conjunction with the route information....

Re: 25/10/2020 Bus service changes - Inner West

Is it being operated as a loop service? In via Bathurst and out via Druitt? I honestly can't tell from the network map. When the timetables are released, we will know. According to the new route maps for 25/10, 503 services will operate as a loop upon arrival at Town Hall, using Bathurst Street EB,...

Re: December Bus Changes - Northern Beaches and Lower North Shore

Will be keen to see the new network map once it's released - the changes around introduction of the B-Line in late 2017 was a good attempt at cleaning up the region's complicated network.

Re: 25/10/2020 Bus service changes - Inner West

When they're talking about terminating the 413 at Railway Square and encouraging people to change to the light rail for the CBD isn't that a bit of a large gap? Is there no way to get it through Rawson Place? Does anything from the inner west actually terminate at Railway Square? I think all of the...

Re: Extra Covid 19 services

In my neck of the woods, the 550 is operating on a roughly every 7 min frequency in both directions from just before midday to 3pm-ish which was somewhat unexpected as the offpeak services never really got full except if the one before or after was late (they normally go to 15min freqs in offpeak o...

Re: STA Observations 2020

I have also seen desto files loaded for similar changes to be made in Region 7. This includes 500X Parramatta Limited Stops and 500X Circular Quay Limited Stops, which I would presume would replace the M52. I don't know when those changes are being made. It would seem as if all limited stops and ex...

Re: Private Bus Observations 2020

It's good to see routes like the 389 providing links from the city to Pyrmont, filling the service black hole. The Pyrmont to Town Hall section of route 389 was originally the remainder of Route 443 which ran up George Street to Circular Quay prior to the October 2015 overhaul of the CBD bus networ...
