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

After 200 gets truncated to Campbell St, there won't be any more services that will turn into Brown Street (officially). I think the key word here was "officially", since the 144 bus around 2pm I was on today going to Chatswood still turned onto Brown Street, and while I didn't pay attention to the...

Re: Jan 2021 bus changes - STA region 7

Hopefully tomorrow (weekday) the updated route 458 will be available. The interactive map does not display the route 458 from 24 Jan onwards, this should be rectified tomorrow. The new timetables for Night Ride routes N80 & N81 should be updated soon to reflect STA as the operator.

Re: Sydney commuters gain 1200 more bus, light rail and ferry services for summer

There are a number of bus timetables that have the additional Summer trips published, some routes have additional trips on Friday evening only and some routes for both Friday & Saturday evening.

Re: NSW TRANSPORT - Trip Planner & Departures

Why would you want the trip planner to give you a lengthy looping ride on a bus, having passed your destination (albeit on the other side of the road), rather than get off and walk across the road? For the vast majority of passengers, that would be a failure of the trip planning function. My exampl...

Re: Private Bus Operations 2021

^ The bus fleet numbers are in the 'to be delivered' section for Transit Systems on the Bus Australia Fleet Lists. These buses are required as the route 458 will be operating out of Region 6 at the end of this month and route work will be reassigned between the depots.
