Re: Current Bus Contracts/Renewals

Westside, while I applaud the effort you have gone into in producing these maps for your proposed Outer North contract area, this is not the place to post them. Feel free to create a topic in the forum Armchair Operators & Fantasy Networks http://www.busaustralia.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=71 Thanks...

Re: Current Bus Contracts/Renewals

Thanks. :) The map is made by taking Admet's original map and using my very limited photoshop skills over the top. It's just lines and squares at a high res, but they look ok when zoomed out at that height. Yeah, my idea is around fewer routes that connect through the main stations. Rather than dump...

Re: Current Bus Contracts/Renewals

Given the drastic changes to other contract areas. I was thinking about what a significantly overhauled Outer North area would look like. There's no reason the Outer Suburbs don't deserve high-frequency routes too. I think there are also a lot of routes that can be consolidated to make this happen. ...

Re: Consultation on new AdMet Network

Anyone important read these forums? I’d like to see “Route 237” reintroduced extended to Tea Tree Plaza as sometimes it’s a hassle with the 361 it doesn’t always connect when you need it. That thought goes against the mantra of the new network, which is fewer routes, less duplication but higher fre...

Re: Major weekend track closure - Southern lines

Cool, thanks for the suggestions! At least the Altandi option is timetabled, so there is a level of reassurance assuming the GC trains still run to timetable for the VL to Yeerongpilly section. And the 140/130s still run every 15 mins on weekends and seem pretty fast, so that's not a terrible option...

Re: BUS ROUTES TO BE SCRAPPED IN DRIVE FOR SAVINGS

Speaking of short services, if the 150Ps were removed, this would free up a bit of funding for the 333s to return. Surely these are even more useless given that they only operate to reduce not in service running. They must have been implemented by Labor as a result of them possibly being persuaded ...

Can anyone tell me why the Osborne Footy Extra Trains don't run express from Woodville to Adelaide like the Seaford one's do? There is a Grange train 5 mins behind, like the Seaford trains have a Tonsley train right behind. So I can't see why you need this extra capacity for these interim stations!

All an extension of the o-bahn to GG would do is route the C1 and C2 buses off Golden Grove Rd and on to the track. The 548 and G40 buses will be the only services on GG Rd. All other services will remain the same. Is it worth it to save 4 buses an hour a few mins, probably not. There would have to ...

I don't mind the X30. Many other cities have the express (or otherwise) pattern indicator at the start of the route number. Ie Sydney with routes such as M30, X03, L37, E50 etc. Doing this will help with the mix up between which letters mean a short-run and which mean a different stopping pattern. T...
