They may be getting those registered from 1466-80 that are based at Midland. After all, Midland and Albany are controlled by the same company.
What about 1462?
That one is an oddball like 2135/37/56 and 2244. Squiddy couldn't have said it better.

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2021

Did a trip down south to Albany today. Spotted 1445 on an 806 and 1449 on an 808. Is Albany getting any of the older Volvos going down to replace the old O405NHs. They may be getting those registered from 1466-80 that are based at Midland. After all, Midland and Albany are controlled by the same co...

Re: Pay no more than 2 zones

While I think there is need for further fare reform I don't think a two zone system would be appropriate. The inner core ends up subsidising the outer core even more. It's better to have a distance based system with capping or the current zonal one in place. Public Holiday Caps and Weekend Caps irr...

Re: Pay no more than 2 zones

I think they should introduce distance based fares instead of zone pricing. If you look at 517, it costs more to travel from Thornlie to Southern River but cheaper to travel further towards Leeming because Southern River is in Zone 3 while Thornlie and Leeming are in Zone 2. By right, the distance b...

Re: $90 million upgrade for Stirling bus bridge

If the infrastructure wasn't designed for artics, at least it should be configured for double deckers. How else would it accommodate high capacity buses?

Re: $90 million upgrade for Stirling bus bridge

Well, Transdev practically owns Freo anyway. I've seen a 999 bus operated by Transdev de-bus everyone upon reaching Freo, then change to 511 bound for Murdoch. It’s almost as if Transdev are operating normally within their contract Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk It was usually a Swan or Path ru...

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2021

Today I was at Perth busport and noticed that TP2049 doing Route 389 to Wanneroo. I think that this was the first time that an OC500LE CNG doing a bus service to Wanneroo. Most certainly not. Trigg used to have their fair share of 346's, which in turn meant that plenty of OC500LE's have done 346's....

Re: $90 million upgrade for Stirling bus bridge

Sometimes there will be a driver change for the 999 at Southlands. The next driver usually waits for the incoming 999 with a spare bus from CV. Morley, OATS STREET, Southlands, Murdoch Park'n'Ride and Stirling are all relief points on the Circle. tonyp: Regarding Fremantle Station, it's the start p...

Re: $90 million upgrade for Stirling bus bridge

Surely you're being a little tongue-in-cheek? There's layover at the ends of routes. Even 998/999 layover at Fremantle (to the annoyance of anybody wanting an unbroken trip from south of Fremantle to north of Fremantle!). However, there's certainly no layover that I know of at these railway interch...

Apparently Perthbus.info has mistakenly classified 3104 as a rigid B8. Hope they have since rectified it.

Also, Trans Geraldton still shows Buswest as a contractor on the same site. AFAIK, Path Transit is now in charge of Geraldton region.

Re: Transport In Review 2020

The changes at the Busport coincided with the truncation of 67 and 68 to said terminus.

Also, 33 no longer serves Karawara, effectively becoming the former route 70.

Re: Transport In Review 2020

Also, Swan Transit's contract for Canning and Gosnells was apparently extended to 2022, possibly to tie in with that of Kalamunda, paving the way for all 3 packages to be operated by one single operator in future, who is most likely the incumbent for Kalamunda.

Some history here to help with perspective: Prior to 2011, the 36 and 75 were part of the Claremont/Belmont contract area. When the tenders were put up in 2011, ...

Re: PTA / Transperth & Private Observations - 2020

Still, the most number of shared runs has to be Canning and Southern River. I see it all the time in Thornlie. Routes that are nominally Southern River (Gas depot) have mostly Volvo fleets, which are from Beckenham and Canning Vale. My guess is this is simply an efficient way to roster; perhaps it ...
