Missed my usual R4 by 2 minutes cuz the driver was early, man missing a ∀rtic is so disappointing, and that meant two I missed today :'( .
452 (R4N)
938 (66W)
938 (66E)
520 (R5S)

I was going to say "bye bye" to Belconnen Renault's for a while thinking that we were returning to Network '19 or whatever, but we're apparently going back to the School Interum Network again. Early AM Tuggy Renault's (with maybe an Iris R5 inbetween ;) ) and 2-3 Belco Renault's in the afternoon again, yippee!!!

Palmer Street, Garran.

I love the idea of continuing it to Woden. A straight bio-directional route rather than a loop service would be much better imo, especially one giving old 49/705 vibes. The 66 is truly long enough as it is, I would say cutting off its Coombs and some of the Prospect sections and giving it to the 47 would make things much tidier.

That extra 10min would probably result in the deployment of an additional bus being necessary, not quite so simple.

Would be more practical to implement when the frequency increases, and, to avoid public confusion, integrate with other routes when a network update occurs.

Another routing aspect which could be useful would be to route around Nettlefold St and thence past the markets and Bunnings - a part of Belconnen presently not served. Again, the fly in the ointment might be increasing the round trip time too close to 1 hour.

There is certainly plenty of potential.

Quote from: Bus It on Yesterday at 03:56:37 PMI would have really liked to see this route continue on to Weston as well. Image the number of extra people you would be able to connect (Coombs, Wright and Weston residents) with Belconnen if they just ran it an extra 10 mins up the road from Denman to Weston.

Hopefully they look at patronage and try to increase it in future revisions.

Agreed but I'd go further and connect it to Woden. Not the most direct route from Woden and Belconnen, but it'd be a start. You could split the 66 up which would operate from Woden to Denman. Then the 47 operates from Belconnen to Woden via Whitlam, Wright and Coolo. Then the 64 or 65 can take the remainder of the 66 route in Weston Creek.

Now hopefully this is hard, but not too hard.

My father is never far away, neither is a good read
