Off Topic / Canberra in lockdown
Last post by triumph - September 21, 2021, 08:50:02 PM
This site does not approve of mentioning a specific time and fleet number together in a post. Apparently this is related to the possibility of constructing shift patterns from multiple such posts and a concept of privacy. It is noted that these issues are not a concern for the Government, as the full daily activity of Buses 592 and 709 is shown in ACT Health Covid Exposure listings for 13th and 17th Sept. and possibly other dates. Is the rule still relevant?

Yeah my bad, I've completely lost track now that I'm not out and about most days of the week.
As far as I can tell the Renaults are northside mostly, so rip me getting any anytime soon.

Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on September 21, 2021, 02:31:40 PM2 weeks later and anytrip is FINALLY working again... Still no sign of Renault's though, they must only be in use during peak and dawn/dusk times.
Renaults are running from 3pm onwards at a minimum; this is confirmed from the exposure sites list, which listed bus 933 as a COVID-19 exposure site on September 2nd. This exposure alert is listed below; you can see the full list of exposure sites at https://www.covid19.act.gov.au/act-status-and-response/act-covid-19-exposure-locations; it is highly recommended that you check it every day.

It's actually more than 3 weeks later, but the guy who runs Anytrip has been busy.

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.
Woolworths is the dominant supermarket chain in the ACT, with the majority of large format stores; Coles is only a distant second in terms of dominance in Canberra, hence why a large number of their stores are exposure locations. Scania L94UB buses are not dominant members of the Transport Canberra fleet; during the period when I was still travelling by bus, they rarely operated in the Gungahlin district, or in the suburb of Ngunnawal, hence they are over-represented in exposure sites.

In extremely concerning news, it is apparent from the exposure sites that a Transport Canberra bus driver has tested positive; the list of trips they operated on the weekend is below. The vehicles they operated were both Tuggeranong buses; if you see your bus approaching at this present time, due to the heightened risk, it is strongly recommended that you practise double masking whilst on buses operated by that depot, you can learn how to double mask by watching the below video, which is below the list of exposure sites.

Canberra Metro / Re: Mitchell stop - January pa...
Last post by Busnerd - September 16, 2021, 05:27:12 PM
Quote from: triumph on September 16, 2021, 12:07:45 PMAn item in the TV news yesterday stated that the new Sandford Street stop in Mitchell has been put into use.
It opened on Monday 13th I believe. It also would appear the services that used to finish at Well Station Drive after peak hour will now continue to Sandford Street before returning to the depot which makes sense.
