Re: NSW On Demand Buses

I hate the prebooked idea from locations like this, they should be trying to get customers and once they have enough then depart.

As there are 2 vans sitting there, the second one could be used if there is a pre booked customer from a pick up location elsewhere.

More likely just the knobs running it! Get a decent team and TfNSW can really be something.

Re: Bus onboard PIDS

Busways have displays in some of the CB80’s or Bustech VST’s
Only seen them showing destination of the route they are on and never a fully functional display.
Others have shown UK services.
