Re: Sydney Metro West announced

But I thought they were going to do a tunnel to a new station somewhere? The Parramatta station site for the West Metro proposal was to be under Civic Place between Darcy St and Macquarie St. From memory I think that the station for the Parramatta to Epping Rail Link was to be under the existing st...

Re: Remnant routes that can be rationalised

Also, for Region 4, I'd eliminate route 708, it seems to be a rare service with a convoluted routing that largely overlaps several bus routes in the Westmead, Wentworthville and Pendle Hill areas.

Re: Remnant routes that can be rationalised

For Region 10 - I'd curtail route 962 to run only between Padstow and Sutherland, as much of its route mirrors the route of the M92. I'd eliminate the portion of route 962 between Sutherland and Cronulla as it largely parallels the Cronulla branch of the T4 Line.

Re: Remnant routes that can be rationalised

For Region 4, I'd split route 603 into two routes.
603-Castle Hill to Parramatta via East Baulkham Hills
643- Castle Hill to Rouse Hill Town Centre via Glenhaven and North Kellyville.

I would expect the 295 to be a Y route.
However, from my own experiences, 288,291 and 292 are codeshared between M and Y.

Vivid Sydney 2017 Extra Services

Did a quick weekly update of Tripview today. Looks like there will be extra outbound 288s and a couple 290s deployed to serve customers on Epping Road from Wynyard.

Re: Remnant routes that can be rationalised

All the Bronte to Railway Square 440s could have remained 378. 440 could just apply to through-routed buses running the whole length between Rozelle and Bronte.

Re: STA Observations - May 2017

I finally got a ride on the brand new 2828 tonight, by pure luck. Got it from Eastwood on route 545, and would have changed at Macquarie for a train but for this special event, stayed for the entire trip. I spotted 2827 (Y) at Macquarie Centre on a 459 service a few weeks ago. Sent from my iPhone u...

530 Chatswood to Burwood and other changes from 4th June.

Is it possible that one of the reasons behind cancelling the route 459, the Macquarie Uni / Centre extensions of the 458 and the removing the 295 away from Macquarie Centre for when the ECRL is shutdown for metro conversion? Just a thought as the area wil be teeming with rail replacement routes and...

Re: Remnant routes that can be rationalised

For the eastern region: Renumber the Mascot-Waterloo leg of the 303 as 304 which will terminate at Botany at the same terminus with the M20. Current 303 will run the same route as X03, via Southern Cross Drive Renumber 391s which terminate at Port Botany to Route 390. For region 4. I would split rou...

Re: Remnant routes that can be rationalised

A few suggestions for Region 5: All current 288s which terminate at Macquarie Centre can be renumbered 296. A half-hourly 288 service between Epping and City- Erskine Street will remain as is. Eliminate route 534, and renumber them as additional 533 trips to/from Chatswood and Olympic Park. Curtail ...

Re: 530 Chatswood to Burwood and other changes from 4th June

In my opinion, I would remove the Greenwich detour from route 265 to clean up the complex routing, and run a new '266' service from Chatswood - Victoria Ave via Pacific Hwy and Greenwich Road to Greenwich Wharf.
Like so:

I grew up not far from there at around that time but I was very young at that date.
