Re: [Sept/Oct 2020] SA transport observations

Recently went past Aldgate Depot and saw a red artic there numbered 3379. Are Southlink renumbering all the artics 2854-2856 & 2858 to 3377-3380? Will 2522 and 2523 return to their original fleet numbers of 3223 and 3224?
Can anyone in the hills confirm this? Cheers

Re: [July/Aug 2020] SA transport observations

I noticed a 229F to City this morning listed as 247. Didn’t get to see it up close but it was definitely a MAN NL 202 so wondering if the 22** buses at Edinburgh North may have reverted to their old Serco Numbers? Or just a coincidence but I wasn’t close enough to see the number of it

Re: [July/Aug 2020] SA transport observations

I see not all ex Southlink Lonsdale 2200s have been transferred to Edinburgh north as Busways 2207 and 2212 were in service today I actually saw 2832 still hadn’t been been renumbered to 832 yet, but is listed on app as 832 so just a case of getting to it I guess.

Re: Adelaide Bus Network Simplification Ideas

Reviving this thread in view of the failure of the latest proposals. I've been thinking about some of the routes I know, and some small-ish changes that can be made to them. Firstly, dealing with routes around (or fairly close to) my old stomping grounds in Valley View - 271, 273, 361, 503, 507. Re...

Re: Consultation on new AdMet Network

The 565 route already had every second service cut to allow the creation of the 566. 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 ...

Re: Consultation on new AdMet Network

Another slight tweak that may not cause much fuss could be removing the 565 unless there is massive demand between Stop 37C and Ingle Farm Shops which still has 500-501-502, 560 and 229 services. 566 services cover the Mawson to Ingle Farm stretch and use the extra kms to extend the 415 to Golden Gr...

Re: Consultation on new AdMet Network

Have been having a look through at the new network. I’m all for the through running, regular services. As for the route numbering this is going to cause massive confusion among travellers - we should keep all routes at three digits and where current routes don’t change leave them as they are eg 837,...

Re: The Random Admet Question Thread

I have heard rumours of them potentially being prematurely withdrawn. But unless this is actually the case, they should last until at least 2027, excluding the 4 units (3269, 3270, 3310, 3311) that were built before 2002. Not sure about the extra ones that were built at random intervals from 2003 t...

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.

Re: [May/June 2019] SA Transport observations

Also Torren Transit has 751(2751).[/quote] 2751 is Lonsdale so depending what Busways do re numbering it may be okay. If Busways also drop the 2 in front of numbers I guess 2751 could go to 724 could it? Being different to its original number. Same situation with 2806, 2807, 2808 and maybe 2803, 280...
