Routes and Timetables / Drivers Being Very Late
Last post by narc855 - Yesterday at 10:03:33 PM
Hello
It's noticed that some drivers would always like to depart very late for a service and they may be on time at the end of that service.
But recently I have found that more and more drivers (main artics drivers from both depots and when drivers do route 57) depart 10 minutes late or more just becasue of personal reasons (first run, after meal break or just watching the phone etc.), and they sometimes can't be on time when they finish the trip or they just be on time for the last few stops. In addition it's noticed that this matter also occured for R4 now (680 left Belconnen with 19 minutes late last week and 677 left Belconnen with 10 minutes late)
Someone might yell at me to say that's becasue of the bus problems. I do believe some of them are due to bus problems, but if you could look at anytrip frequently during a day, you see lots of "all-red fleet numbers", you will know that some of them are actually not due to bus problems. And I saw two driver on 541/616 today, both left City with 8/9 minutes late, but the drivers just on his phone before they departed.
So, question: do you think drivers have the time responsibility to deliver the service, which means they need to start the trip with no more than 5 minutes late if there's no issue with the bus?
In my opinion I would choose option 2. Personally, I was always late for my school because a driver always departed very late, caused more than 5 minutes late when at the school stop, issues were fixed when I finally decided to report it.

Not the worst KFC actually. Woden KFC has a mess carpark and drive thru design and the guys here always forget to put something into my meal bags...

You would assume because that's because the individual was only on the bus for that long.

927 became an exposure location now so we may not see it on road recently.
But how is the exposure time last for only 3 minutes...

927 is the oldest, based on build date / registration. But it hasn't been in continuous service.

Allowing for the time 927 was withdrawn, 929 should be regarded as the longest serving bus. Of all time.

It is? I saw no mention of bus timetables.

On the other hand, Minister Chris Steel has announced that school bus services (and school diversions) will recommence on 25 October.

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.
Your behaviour is questionable at best....why would you catch three buses to arguably the worst KFC in Canberra?

I would be a bit wary, if some predictions are to be believed, then Covid will be far more pervasive than at present during lockdown..... .

Quote from: triumph on July 15, 2021, 11:05:53 PMMinor correction. Post is dated 1st July 2021. Unknown at that date was that 925 and 2 others were retired the day before. Thus, correctly, the oldest in service bus in the fleet as at 1st July 2021 is 929, first registered according to the Fleet Wiki on 15th October 1991. 
Another correction. Bus 927 has been returned to service to substitute for bus 307 (Fleet Wiki). So 927 is now the oldest bus in TC service, first registered 1/10/91 (Fleet Wiki). So, it is about to turn 30 years 0f registered age.

(As a matter of curiosity, is the all time oldest in service known?)
