Re: Ryde: development hits the infrastructure wall

500 is a peak hour service these days, not all day, and 501 goes to Railway Square only these days, not deep in the city centre but on the fringes. 500 also operates a handful of Saturday evening trips, and several Sunday services, often as a short working of 515 which only runs hourly from Circula...

Re: STA Observations - January to June 2018

New region guides are up for the Western (7) and Southern (6) regions, showing the removal of 462, 547 & 550, new route 259, truncated and rerouted 545, and rerouted 422 and 466. The map for the Eastern region (9) has not been updated to remove X03 from the map. https://transportnsw.info/document/1...

Re: STA Observations - January to June 2018

Spotted Y’s 2923 at Macquarie Centre this arvo on a Parramatta 545 service. Probably the first time I’ve seen a Volgren B8RLE from Ryde in service before - according to Fleet Lists it was delivered in March. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180508/b304f8551f37cbafc2198039a25c5fa0.jpg Sent from my ...

Re: STA Observations - January to June 2018

Caught M's 3835 this morning on the 8:02am Epping to North Sydney 291 service. At Epping Station the driver carefully warned the Epping Boys High students to tap on with their bus pass (Blue School Opal Card) before boarding his bus. Also while waiting at stop 2065136 at Greenwich, I spotted P's 233...

Re: STA Observations - January to June 2018

Was at Epping this evening at around 6 pm. Almost 100 people waiting for a 546/549. Aside from the fact that one of the 549s that pulled up was 23 min late according to the real time apps, the new TTs to take effect on 6/5 still only has the 549 running at 10/20 min intervals during the highest pea...

Re: STA Observations - January to June 2018

In other news, I'm pretty astonished that Route 549 gets a service boost, since there is currently very little late night transport from Epping to North Rocks and Carlingford North where I live (bar the M2 Barclay Road interchange, which is served by the M61/607X/610/610X/611/619). Glad to see there...

Re: STA Observations - January to June 2018

Comparing the current 545 and new 259 it seems there has been a cut in frequencies compared for when the route was 545 to what it will be when it becomes 259. Weekday off peak - cut from a service every 15 minutes to every 30 minutes Saturday - cut from a service every 20 minutes to every 30 minutes...

Also, the new PDF timetable for route 422 still shows "Kogarah to City Martin Place" instead of "Kogarah to Central Pitt Street". The route map at the end of the timetable still shows route 422 running via City Road instead of the new diversion via Parramatta Road and Missenden Road. *EDIT - I've lo...

STA Observations - January to June 2018

Other news from yesterday, I caught 1721 (an artic) from M running the 11:25am 292 Marsfield service. I’m not quite sure why M would run an artic at that time since there were only two passengers on board the 292 between Lane Cove Interchange and Macquarie Centre the whole way. Might be a bit of an ...

Re: Nightride changes from March 2018

Is there still an all night option along Epping Rd? N91 could have travelled up the Pacific Hwy to Gordon then left Lane Cove Rd R Waterloo Rd and back on track there, with North Ryde area covered by the Epping Rd service or 610's(??) That awkwardly ridiculous detour of yours via Gordon for your N9...

Caught M’s 3436 on an Epping bound 288 at Macquarie Centre today at 12:40pm.

Your destination board says 288 City.” The driver was in no hesitation to promptly co...
