Quote from: Bus 400 on October 09, 2010, 12:33:34 PMWith the trail over & Redex being integrated into the shifts. Does anyone know if Tuggeranong will keep their diesel MAN's?
Quote from: Metrobus on October 09, 2010, 02:41:07 PMGoing by the shifts, no.
Quote from: smitho on October 20, 2010, 09:38:05 PMNew bus stop signage installed yesterday today at southbound stops @ Railway Station and Southside Lighting (Canberra Ave) for Redex / Redline extension.
Quote from: 400:D on November 12, 2010, 06:32:47 AMI'm curious as to why the info for the 80 and 980 is helpful and the 200 just says to South.
Quote from: MyWay on November 13, 2010, 12:29:25 AMThat's just a temporary timetable print-out from HASTUS. There will be more detailed ones coming soon. Notice that the Blue Rapid stops around Belconnen (e.g. College St) have new timetable/information displays including a route diagram; I expect Red Rapid will eventually have similar information.
Quote from: smitho on November 15, 2010, 12:20:01 PMMakes sense to concentrate the diesel MANs on the 300s and the gas buses on the 200s in peak hours.The superior performance of the diesel MANs on steep climbs such as Barry Drive northbound makes them ideal for the intertowns, whereas the more modest gradients on the 200 route can be easily handled by the gas fleet.
Quote from: MyWay on November 15, 2010, 01:29:25 PMB depot have sent a few Irisbuses out on Red Rapid today.
Quote from: 400:D on November 15, 2010, 06:47:26 PM... But Irisbuses? It's why the 727 will always be better.
Quote from: Bus 400 on November 15, 2010, 06:52:30 PMThe occasional Irisbus was on the 727, the sad thing was that the 727 route wasn't programmed in. So they had to display a plastic sign in the dash.
Quote from: Bus 400 on November 14, 2010, 10:03:42 PMWas going along Canberra Avenue on Saturday & the DFO bound Red Rapid bollard hasn't been installed, all that was there was a plain metal pole.
Quote from: smitho on November 16, 2010, 02:08:08 PMThis morning's southbound, peak hour 200s were really struggling with the slow moving car park from Watson to Civic (= Northbourne Ave). Got into Civic about 17 minutes late, where I overtook the earlier southbound 200 which was supposed to be running ahead of me.
Quote from: Bus 400 on November 26, 2010, 11:35:24 PM But what I would like to see is that the peak extensions of the 51, 52 & 59 services added to the 100 series of numbers.

Quote from: smitho on July 19, 2013, 09:42:34 PMWondered how common it is to have the sound and light set up operation on "red rapids"?
