Quote from: smitho on November 02, 2010, 01:42:21 PMWhat appears to have been a former Department of the Interior bus stop landing pad (of the pre-fab concrete block variety) has recently been removed from Cowper St northbound (No. 7 route), just north of the Cox St intersection.
Quote from: smitho on September 06, 2010, 08:48:26 PMYes, I'd wondered that too, but can't say I've ever noticed ACTION put in pads for dedicated school bus stops...
Quote from: Bus 400 on November 17, 2010, 01:52:09 PMThere looks to be a pair of old bus stop bays on Belconnen Way near the Haydon Drive intersection.Could these be from the days when the 333 went via Eastern Valley Way & skipped the UC & Calvary Hospital?
Quote from: Bus 400 on September 15, 2010, 07:22:59 PMThere is also an old stop on Gungahlin Drive in Palmerston. All that is left is a yellow ACTION logo sprayed onto a light pole.
Quote from: MyWay on January 01, 2011, 01:12:48 AMNo. 333 never stopped on Belconnen Way.It is possible that route 16 (Woden to Higgins Interchange) stopped there though.Again, no - this is not an old stop. It has another purpose.
Quote from: MyWay on June 01, 2011, 01:04:46 PMI stand by my statement. Old time ACTION staff member is mistaken (perhaps thinking about route 16).
Quote from: MyWay on June 01, 2011, 01:04:46 PMI stand by my statement. Old time ACTION staff member is mistaken (perhaps thinking about route 16).Take a look at this first edition timetable for route 333. There is no bus stop shown on Belconnen Way.The Marcus Clarke and Barry Drive stops were only serviced during off-peak when the 333 was introduced.
Quote from: ajw373 on June 01, 2011, 05:14:09 PMWere you even born when the 333 was introduced?
Quote from: Chris_Guru on June 02, 2011, 12:30:43 AMRelevance to topic?
Quote from: Metrobus on June 02, 2011, 01:27:09 AMNone at all, the funny thing is ajw373 has no idea who he is talking to...someone who probably knows more about ACT public transport history than anyone on this website...
Quote from: ajw373 on June 02, 2011, 10:33:06 AMSo to summerise (sic) with some actual facts. We are all in agreeance there was a bus stop on Belconnen Way. We are all in agreeance that the 16 stopped there. We are all in agreeance that the 333 replaced the 16. We are all in agreeance that the time table shows the 333 was not meant to stop at this stop. But that does not mean for a short period of time after the introduction of the 333 that they didn't stop there. So maybe the old timers (sic) memory is 100% spot on.
QuoteSo maybe a little bit of respect for those that experienced history is in order rather than discounting out of hand just because some old timetable says it wasn't meant to happen.
Quote from: MyWay on June 02, 2011, 12:20:14 PMWere you?
Quote from: MyWay on June 02, 2011, 12:20:14 PMActually, we're not in agreeance about this at all. There is what appears to be an old bus stop bay on Belconnen Way, but no-one has provided any proof which services stopped there (if any) from either first-hand experience or timetables.
Quote from: MyWay on June 02, 2011, 12:20:14 PMAs far as route 333 goes I have two words: LIMITED STOP.
Quote from: MyWay on June 02, 2011, 12:20:14 PMSo if I experienced this myself first hand, then I am entitled to some respect. Otherwise I'm just a young kid who knows nothing and can be openly disrespected.
Quote from: Metrobus on June 02, 2011, 11:43:28 PMDo you not get the hint, 'MyWay' is not who you think it is (which I was hinting at in my last post)! I know for a fact that he was around then.
Quote from: lukeo25 on January 05, 2013, 07:09:32 PMI used that bus stop when I was working at ALLBIDS (not anymore) just down the road, used it to get home of an evening :)
Quote from: 743 on August 09, 2015, 10:12:39 PMRe: Mackenzie St (Hackett) - for young kids, it's a fair walk down to the main stops on Madigan, and also uphill in the return direction. The school routes service local primary schools, not high schools, so are designed to cater for kids of that age and get them closer to home. I'm sure MyWay/enrolment data dictates - to a certain extent - demand for school routes in such areas. It's not just Hackett - lots of suburbs have school routes that go 'off the beaten track' - just browse the maps on the ACTION website. Re: Georgina Cres - fairly sure a school route uses this as a terminus - a search of the ACTION website would confirm.
Quote from: Bus 503 on August 10, 2015, 08:13:27 PMGorging CRESCENT appears to be serviced by SR 620 in the morning and nothing in the arvo. I wonder if the 620 goes up the whole way though?
Quote from: 743 on August 10, 2015, 08:56:35 PMHave you looked at the map for it?
Quote from: Bus 503 on August 09, 2015, 07:46:17 PMAlso, ... Geogina Crescent (sic) Kaleen North terminus? I have seen the occasional not in service bus but the stop has current blades...
Quote from: 743 on October 15, 2015, 07:45:32 AMLook through the old networks on the ACT Bus website and you should find some info.Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk
Quote from: 743 on October 27, 2015, 01:35:53 PMI think the Mount Stromlo thing is a concrete reflector. There is however a disused peg down around the Cotter Dam.I doubt the Waramanga pegs are still there - the NXTBUS blades went up in December 2013 (ish). Services weren't removed from that part of the street until September 2014.Sent from my SM-G920I using Tapatalk
Quote from: Bus 503 on October 31, 2015, 09:27:39 PMI was trying to find out where this peg is located at some substation... The link provides the picture. Does this "stop" still have ACTION routes? http://www.actbus.net/forum/index.php?topic=2357.0And is the peg and shelter at Gunghalin Cemetary still there?
Quote from: King of Buses on October 31, 2015, 09:46:24 PM83 serves that substation stop. It is on Heysen St at the back of Lyons. No peg anymore though.Last time I checked, Gungahlin Cemetery has its infrastructure still.
Quote from: Bus 503 on November 13, 2015, 09:11:13 PMWhat School route services Banskia street? The stops have current blades with SSO flags as well, but with NXTBUS not working on those stops, and with ACTION's website not showing anything for those stops, I haven't been able to find out any information on these stops.
Quote from: Busfanatic101 on November 13, 2015, 10:07:04 PMDidn't you mention that the 300 series serviced Banksia St at one point according to NXTBUS? Sorry I couldn't be of more help
Quote from: Bus 503 on October 27, 2015, 06:11:47 AMAnd, has anyone checked out the unserviced part of Nemerang street Waramango? Maps says it has pegs...
Quote from: Bus 400 on November 25, 2015, 12:27:33 PMThere are only the poles left on the unserviced part of Nemarang St.
QuoteJust got to be Derrington Cres, I recall getting shown these stops by fellow gunzels.
Quote from: Bus 503 on November 20, 2015, 09:14:29 PMIs the end of Copland Drive which leads into and intersection with Owen Dixon Drive a former terminus?
