Quote from: Toyota Camry on August 13, 2021, 11:37:03 PMthis is due to what I believe was an incursion from Sydney caused by the construction industry.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on August 15, 2021, 08:47:38 PMI am curious if any members here have either operated or travelled on any services during lockdown; is the network operating empty buses all day every day, or are some passengers still travelling.
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on August 16, 2021, 08:06:22 AMI certainly did during 2020's April lockdown at least 1-3 times a week. Albeit I was travelling before 9am to avoid everyone, getting Renault's galore and utilizing that first-hour shop thing that was on then. Back then until 9am it was nice as I was basically the only person on the 71>66>71/70 each time, but there might've been the occasional 1 or 2 others at the most. The few times I had to travel after 9am there were certainly quite a few more people about on the buses and that final 71/70 I would get was before 9, so it had the occasional couple of kids getting on from Weston for St Thomas/Taylor/Namadgi.

Quote from: Toyota Camry on August 17, 2021, 07:52:11 PMan essential worker from Woden can travel to Belconnen using routes 58 & 32
Quote from: Toyota Camry on August 16, 2021, 09:31:17 PMif you are desiring to travel on... all Renaults... without wearing a fitted face mask
Quote from: Toyota Camry on August 19, 2021, 11:50:07 AMR6 - City West to Tuggeranong via Kingston, Woden & Erindale; standard route will be followed to Woden, followed by the R5 route between Woden & Erindale, service then continues to Tuggeranong, similar to former weekend service 900.
Quote from: Snorzac on September 06, 2021, 10:18:08 PMJust to clear things up, are we retiring the "Renaults" which are allegedly surplus to requirements or using them more with their windows permanently forced open for added COVID safety whilst discriminating against those with mobility issues at the same time?
Quote from: Toyota Camry on September 10, 2021, 10:57:53 PMI am not a believer in coincidence or religion; however it appears the Scania L94UB gas fleet is over-represented in exposure sites. In order to avoid the risk of catching COVID-19, if you are a believer in luck, it is possible that the Scania L94UB gas fleet is associated with back luck in terms of exposures,
Quote from: Toyota Camry on September 10, 2021, 11:02:49 PMDuring the month of October at the conclusion of lockdown, Canberra will be transitioning to living in a new world order of COVID-normal, with permanent measures such as capacity limits, face masks and testing; once this new world order has commenced, the Renault and Irisbus fleet can be retired due to the lack of patronage demand due to a significant proportion of office, including APS and Executive Level workers, that will not be returning to work for many years to come, as well as the permanent closure of some businesses such as nightclubs that cannot practically operate under a COVID-normal world order and/or with ongoing requirements such as mandatory face masks or for all patrons to remain seated.
Quote from: Toyota Camry on September 10, 2021, 10:57:53 PM... you may wish to wait for the next service if your trip is a Scania L94UB gas bus.
Quote from: Busnerd on September 16, 2021, 06:36:52 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.
Quote from: triumph on September 21, 2021, 09:50:02 PMThis site does not approve of mentioning a specific time and fleet number together in a post. ... Is the rule still relevant?

Quote from: Snorzac on September 22, 2021, 10:52:39 PMAs it stands, school will be going back shortly, the work needed to make the changes would not be worth it as when school goes back a full network will be required to maintain school services
Quote from: Sylvan Loves Buses on September 23, 2021, 03:14:10 AMI haven't seen a single bike rack in use since the lockdown, I don't think that one's necessary.
Quote from: Snorzac on September 23, 2021, 09:15:31 AMI think it's also important to note in this outbreak in Canberra, whilst there bas been numerous public transport exposures, there has been no transmission on public transport to date....
Quote from: narc855 on September 23, 2021, 11:45:51 AMSo I think we will likely have few passengers onboard until November. That means it may be worth to try a Saturday timetable with the aid of artics. It is actually harmful to me becasue I can't take photos of Irisbuses but I do believe it would reduce the cost though. (Even you still need to pay for employees, you don't need to pay for vehicles cost.)
Quote from: Toyota Camry on September 27, 2021, 08:07:55 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.
