Quote from: Toyota Camry on August 13, 2021, 10:37:03 PMthis is due to what I believe was an incursion from Sydney caused by the construction industry.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on August 15, 2021, 07:47:38 PMI am curious if any members here have either operated or travelled on any services during lockdown; is the network operating empty buses all day every day, or are some passengers still travelling.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on August 16, 2021, 07:06:22 AMI certainly did during 2020's April lockdown at least 1-3 times a week. Albeit I was travelling before 9am to avoid everyone, getting Renault's galore and utilizing that first-hour shop thing that was on then. Back then until 9am it was nice as I was basically the only person on the 71>66>71/70 each time, but there might've been the occasional 1 or 2 others at the most. The few times I had to travel after 9am there were certainly quite a few more people about on the buses and that final 71/70 I would get was before 9, so it had the occasional couple of kids getting on from Weston for St Thomas/Taylor/Namadgi.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on August 17, 2021, 06:52:11 PMThis is urgently necessary to discourage travel between different areas of Canberra, following our excellent Chief Minister's directive for people to stay within their local area;

Quote from: Toyota Camry on August 16, 2021, 08:31:17 PMif you are desiring to travel on... all Renaults... without wearing a fitted face mask
Quote from: Toyota Camry on August 19, 2021, 10:50:07 AMR6 - City West to Tuggeranong via Kingston, Woden & Erindale; standard route will be followed to Woden, followed by the R5 route between Woden & Erindale, service then continues to Tuggeranong, similar to former weekend service 900.
Quote from: Snorzac on September 06, 2021, 09:18:08 PMJust to clear things up, are we retiring the "Renaults" which are allegedly surplus to requirements or using them more with their windows permanently forced open for added COVID safety whilst discriminating against those with mobility issues at the same time?
Quote from: Toyota Camry on September 10, 2021, 09:57:53 PMI am not a believer in coincidence or religion; however it appears the Scania L94UB gas fleet is over-represented in exposure sites. In order to avoid the risk of catching COVID-19, if you are a believer in luck, it is possible that the Scania L94UB gas fleet is associated with back luck in terms of exposures,
Quote from: Toyota Camry on September 10, 2021, 10:02:49 PMDuring the month of October at the conclusion of lockdown, Canberra will be transitioning to living in a new world order of COVID-normal, with permanent measures such as capacity limits, face masks and testing; once this new world order has commenced, the Renault and Irisbus fleet can be retired due to the lack of patronage demand due to a significant proportion of office, including APS and Executive Level workers, that will not be returning to work for many years to come, as well as the permanent closure of some businesses such as nightclubs that cannot practically operate under a COVID-normal world order and/or with ongoing requirements such as mandatory face masks or for all patrons to remain seated.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on September 10, 2021, 09:57:53 PM... you may wish to wait for the next service if your trip is a Scania L94UB gas bus.
Quote from: Busnerd on September 16, 2021, 05:36:52 PMAgreed, given then data it would be safest to shop at other supermarkets not often listed as exposure sites such as some IGA's, SPAR, Friendly Grocer and convenience stores.
Quote from: triumph on September 21, 2021, 08:50:02 PMThis site does not approve of mentioning a specific time and fleet number together in a post. ... Is the rule still relevant?
Quote from: narc855 on September 22, 2021, 09:49:21 PMNOT Stag for no bike racks
Quote from: Snorzac on September 22, 2021, 09:52:39 PMAs it stands, school will be going back shortly, the work needed to make the changes would not be worth it as when school goes back a full network will be required to maintain school services
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on September 23, 2021, 02:14:10 AMI haven't seen a single bike rack in use since the lockdown, I don't think that one's necessary.
Quote from: Snorzac on September 23, 2021, 08:15:31 AMI think it's also important to note in this outbreak in Canberra, whilst there bas been numerous public transport exposures, there has been no transmission on public transport to date....
Quote from: narc855 on September 23, 2021, 10:45:51 AMSo I think we will likely have few passengers onboard until November. That means it may be worth to try a Saturday timetable with the aid of artics. It is actually harmful to me becasue I can't take photos of Irisbuses but I do believe it would reduce the cost though. (Even you still need to pay for employees, you don't need to pay for vehicles cost.)
Quote from: Toyota Camry on September 27, 2021, 07:07:55 PMOn Friday October 15th, I will be utilising a bus service for the first time since June to celebrate the end of lockdown, and will travel to KFC Hawker using routes 28, R8 & 45; on arrival I will be meeting an APS6 for lunch, most likely comprising of a Twister Box, which is no longer advertised on the main menu.

Quote from: Toyota Camry on October 18, 2021, 09:19:06 PMthe lockdown has now ended in Canberra, and it is legal to ride on buses for fun
Quote from: Toyota Camry on October 21, 2021, 09:20:03 PMI am extremely concerned by information at https://www.covid19.act.gov.au/ stating that the mask mandate on public transport in the ACT will end on November 26; this site is claiming the mask mandate will only continue in high risk settings such as hospitals and nursing homes beyond this date. It is strongly recommended that you contact your local MLA demanding an extension of the mask mandate on Transport Canberra buses and light rail services; I will be refusing to travel by bus if masks are not mandatory.
Quote from: Barry Drive on October 22, 2021, 05:45:05 PMDoes it? (Might need the URL of the actual page or article, because I couldn't see any mention)If it's true, it's not surprising - the mask mandate had to end at some point. IMO once we achieve a 95% or higher vaccination rate the risk will be low, and the CHO and Chief Minister have always adopted a risk management approach to their health directions.Feel free to continue wearing a mask (or two) if you so choose.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on October 23, 2021, 09:40:53 PMI will be continuing to wear a mask in public beyond November 26, as should others; it is extremely important that all persons are wearing a fitted face mask as the purpose of wearing a mask is to avoid the wearer transmitting COVID-19 to others, not to protect the wearer, hence it is not simply enough for myself to be wearing a mask if others are not.
😷 Face masks will no longer be required indoors, except in the following settings when they must be worn by any person aged 12 years or over:• High risk facilities, including hospitals, aged care, correction and detention facilities• On public transport— ACT Health (@ACTHealth) November 8, 2021

Quote from: Bus 400 on December 22, 2021, 08:33:14 PMWhy? Residents can still choose to wear a mask.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on December 22, 2021, 10:13:26 PMYou do not have a right to spread COVID-19 to others
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on December 23, 2021, 08:22:52 AMWhere does it say that, I thought this was a free country? Obviously you'd have to be a psychopath to want to do something like this, but I never knew there were 'rights' when it came to covid. Compliance sure, but rights? please show me where it says that.
Quote from: ajw373 on December 24, 2021, 10:05:20 AMif you wear one but a positive person doesn't there is little benefit to you wearing a mask
Quote from: ajw373 on December 24, 2021, 10:05:20 AMThe only way mask wearing works is by everyone wearing one, which means it really does need to be mandated.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on December 27, 2021, 05:05:13 PMDunno about two masks, but with this new varient I would prefer something that covers the whole face, know where I can get something like that?
Quote from: Toyota Camry on December 27, 2021, 01:27:04 PMNow is the time to limit all non-essential activity in Canberra; whilst the government has not yet declared a lockdown, which may occur next month, it is now of extreme importance that you avoid high risk locations, wear two masks and do not gather with other people unless it is essential.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on January 02, 2022, 05:38:02 PMDo not travel with only a single mask unless it is an emergency.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on January 02, 2022, 05:38:02 PMIt is now time to take some personal responsibility, and place yourself into lockdown
Quote from: Toyota Camry on January 02, 2022, 05:38:02 PMonly travel on quiet services and use Anytrip to identify if your bus will be a COVIDsafe vehicle such as an... Renault
Quote from: Bus 400 on January 02, 2022, 10:30:27 PMThe biggest concern should be for those aged 10 & under who currently do not have access to the vaccine & those who are in a medical position that the vaccine is of no use & those with underlying health conditions. If you are in contact with anyone of these groups, then yes limit your movements. Before visiting these people, have a RAT test. If you're concerned, have a RAT test daily. Those that wish to ignore medical advice, can no pay the price for not getting vaccinated.
Quote from: narc855 on January 04, 2022, 06:56:06 PMSeemingly young people are easily getting sick from jabs (ie dead viruses) instead of activite viruses...That also happened to me, I got fever after my 2nd dose while the last time I got fever was 2 years ago. However, I still think it is positive to get the 3rd doses (when it's avaliable to me as I am under 18). On the other hand I agree that if you suffered from great side effects you may not receive any further dose. In addition, you can try to make a claim against government.
