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: [Sept/Oct 2020] SA transport observations

I imagine some buses will need to be used for train substitute services on the Harbor and Grange Lines and possibly all lines when wires are put up on the rest of Adelaide Yard

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...

Re: [July/Aug 2020] SA transport observations

Last week I went on a few buses in first time in ages whilst waiting for my car to be serviced. The driver on the 502 was braking too late. The MAN bus on H30 felt like its tyres were really really inflated. Then rode a A City train to Clovelly, swaying alot especially between Mile End and Goodwood....

Re: Consultation on new AdMet Network

There generally are people who use the nlw hourly (or 2 hourly on Saturday) 565 service given it has a guaranteed connection with the 560 to/from TTP. Also alot of people in Montague Farm (Henderson Ave) seem to go...

No real surprise - did a small survey of the 3:30, 4:30, 5:30 services and all were next to empty (2 pax max). A much simpler system for the Southern Vales is planned, reducing 10+ variations to just 4. One option that might work though is extending the 737 to McLaren Vale via Clarendon and McLaren...
