Re: Timetable Changes (Dec 2)

Anyway, if anyone is interested, here's a map of the new bus changes: https://imgur.com/6q88UIB I wonder how the layover arrangements for route 308 will work at Central, seeing as it will terminate smack bang midway up busy Elizabeth Street, where the light rail construction is located and where pl...

Re: STA Observations - July to December 2018

Spotted 2835 on a Carlingford Court bound 513 service at Coleman Avenue and Pennant Hills Road on Friday evening with ridiculously tiny front desto text - which seems to be the case with the wrong desto file being uploaded in the system software.

Re: Invictus Games

And yet again, TfNSW yet again fails to acknowledge that route 526 now runs across the bridge to Rhodes (as it has since 2016) instead of terminating at SOP wharf.

Re: STA Observations - July to December 2018

Can confirm some artics in the Corporate livery are being utilised on some off-peak 288 services between Epping and the City. I caught M's 1697 on a Citybound service this morning, and saw another artic leaving Macquarie Centre for Epping around 3:40pm this arvo.

Re: Station Link Observations

There are still signs in Eddy Ave advising of diversions on 6th May. Even on former STA/now Transit Systems buses running the M41, the buses still show the boards with the Region 7 changes from 6 May 2018 for increased services on routes M52, M54, 506, 507, 518, 521, 545, 546 & 549 even four months...

Re: Station Link Observations

And how is a bus lane in Herring Road going to work, when the buses have to turn right ? I'm not familiar with this location, but there are a few intersections around Sydney where buses can turn right from a left hand bus lane, with a dedicated B light phase. 545 en route to Parramatta turning righ...

Re: Station Link Observations

Well here is todays report: Tuesday 2nd October. On the other side of the road, a bus to the city with a number ending in 88 was taking passengers, and some people crossed the road to get onto it. That bus to the City is the 288 which since 5 September 2016 is the only regular route that continues ...

Route/Timetable changes 23rd and 30th September 2018

In the new weekday timetable there is a new service departing Lindfield at 08:49 and terminates at Rhodes Platform 3 at 09:43. I wonder why that is the case? Image

Re: STA Observations - July to December 2018

Pity about M40 and it’s extension - the northern side of the harbour loses out again. Last time a Metrobus got extended operating hours, M20, of course, right up till Wynyard. Route M54 received a first increase to services from 8pm till midnight every night on 5 June 2016, and from 6 May 2018 rece...

By the time the M54 had reached Carlingford Court/Rembrandt Street (where the final passengers boarded), the bus was 100% full, so the driver had to ski...

STA Observations - January to June 2018

I’ve noticed in the past weeks since the 6th May changes from my observations, at Parramatta and Terry Road, Eastwood, that some eastbound 545s display the desto ‘MACQUARIE CTR’ instead of the correct ‘MACQUARIE PARK’ desto. Any reason why this is the case on some buses on route 545? Can anyone conf...

This is due to the trackwork on the Bankstown Line between Cabramatta or Lidcombe and Sydenham; these services are to substitute for the truncated T3 services on the City Circle.

Caught Y’s Metrobus branded 2198 on the 15:00 Epping to Parramatta 546 service today. Nothing much, other the fact that I recall that these Metrobus O500LE CNG’s are generally used on M52, M54 and the occasional M41 service.
