Re: Gawler Rail Line shutdown

Because the Gawler Bus subs require so many buses,Torrrens Transit didnt have sufficient spare buses,so they chose to give Kanga some runs. It was also common for SouthLink to use contractors for weekday closures on the Gawler & Noarlunga/Seaford lines. Good way for charter companies to get some re...

Re: Gawler Rail Line shutdown

Why is it suss? Perhaps Kanga sees a longer term opportunity to either participate in or tender in their own right for rail replacements. After all its a free market..... The buses could also be used for cruise ship transfers to the city when that activity eventually resumes. I know a few years ago...

Re: Buses out of service for long periods

Re: Gawler Rail Line shutdown

Seems suss that kanga has dressed up their runs as K Rail. Maybe they are hoping one of the new bus operators or train operator will flop

Re: January 2021 timetable changes

A tinkering of bus routes in northern Adelaide could be considered.
For example:

228 divert to Lyell McEwin Hospital

Re: Flinders Line news

I am really shocked at the location of "Flinders Station", or whatever they are calling it. It just seems to be in the middle of nowhere with a fair walk to the majority of the Universities buildings, and a bit of a walk to the Hospital. Where else could it of gone without costing an arm and a leg?...

Re: O-Bahn extension ruled out

Re: O-Bahn extension ruled out

Existing services could be improved by removing the 3 minute loading time at TTP that seems to be present on all services outside of peak, even late at night. It doesn't always take that long for 10 able-bodied pax to step onto a low floor bus. That extra minute or two loading time is the differenc...

Re: 230, 232 and 232R route and timetable change

From an outsiders view, I think it would make sense for a new route entirely instead of making the 230/232 situation more complex than necessary. 230/232 to remain the same north of Arndale. Then run direct via Torrens Road to the city (decreasing travel time for people who live further out) 231/wh...
