Re: Bus network pre Unsworth review

Somewhat related to this thread, but while I was waiting for my first 550 service to Macquarie Park on Monday at Stop 211840 (Pennant Hills Rd after Lloyds Ave, Carlingford). I waited under a newly constructed (probably transplanted) bus shelter installed by the City of Parramatta which replaced an ...

Re: NSW Railway Observations 2019

New timetable starts today, including the Northern Line changing from T1 to T9. However, looks like not all has gone to plan... Trains from Berowra/Hornsby via Gordon are incorrectly showing as T9 Northern Line when they should still be T1 North Shore. Towards Hornsby/Berwora they are correct. The ...

Re: STA Observations 2019

Seems to be a lot of people having a looong weekend already, Traffic in the east was very light this evening. Lots of Anzac Pde services showing up to 9 mins early. My City to Epping 288 service (ex Wynyard 15:23) arrived at Epping 7 minutes early, with the bulk of passengers alighting at Lane Cove...

Re: New bus network arising from SMNW opening

As of yesterday, I have yet to see any information posters regarding the change in route number from M54 into 550 along the route through Carlingford. Not to mention that numerous Metrobus branded bus stops along the M54/550 route between Parramatta and Epping have been damaged or vandalised.

Re: Darryn Capes-Davis' campaign: 548 Epping to Westmead

I know this is an unofficial proposal, but as a Carlingford resident who uses the 546 and 549 services regularly, if a new '548' service is added which duplicates much of the current 549 route from Epping to North Parramatta, you'd have to alter the departure times of routes 549 and 546 in the morni...

Re: New bus network arising from SMNW opening

Back to the old metro bus routes that will become 410/550/340: I wonder whether their timetables will now be fully visible or simply remain as a "frequency guide" service? I can confirm that the new 550 timetable is basically a reprint of the outgoing M54 timetable. It was released on Sunday. https...

Re: New bus network arising from SMNW opening

I basically think that anything not already going express via the LCT, and anything going to Macquarie Park, Chatswood or North Sydney will be scrapped. It simply won't be time competitive compared to a short trip to the closest station and a ride on the metro. West Pennant Hills routes will be uni...

Didn't the 440 go to Bronte when it was amalgamated some years ago, but only had it cut back to BJI? Just reintroduce that! The problem with the October 2015-November 2017 Rozelle to Bronte route 440 is that the amalgamated route was very long, with the bottlenecks at Norton Street, Parramatta Road...

Route 352 runs every 20 min during peak and every 30 min during the weekday off-peak and weekends. 379 between Bondi Junction and Bronte run every 10 min during week...

New bus network arising from SMNW opening

I strongly suspect all other city services will stay as they are as the metro wouldn’t be able to handle the sheer influx of all those buses ever I tend to agree. Also because the North Shore line trains won't have the capacity at Chatswood to take all the metro passengers to the City, and people a...

Re: STA Observations 2019

Just the destination is useless if you don't know the whole route of the bus. The 379 goes from Bondi to Bronte, but does go via BJI. Minor correction, the 379 runs from North Bondi to Bronte via Bondi Junction. It doesn't really serve the Campbell Parade section of Bondi Beach as that portion is s...

Re: Station Link Observations

SL4 St Leonards to Macq Uni should run all days, all hours. On weekends, extend to Epping and reduce the frequency of SL1 slightly. Your weekend extension of SL4 to Epping largely duplicates STA's route 291 service (Epping to McMahons Point), which only runs hourly on weekends and in the off-peak d...
